This fight hasn’t been announced yet but on the IBF website it says that it will be happening August 22nd. The winner of the fight will move to the number 2 spot and then will presumably be ordered to face the winner of another IBF Eliminator to become mandatory.
I think this is a decent fight because both are clearly past their prime but have shown they can still be in fun fights. I don’t think they’ll be a huge challenge for Caleb Plant or whoever beats him but they are a good name for the resume.
I think the fight will likely be one of the ones announced after the August 8th Jamal James- Thomas Dulorme card.
