Re: Tomlinson chasing shot at WBC super feather belt in Mexico
There's nothing wrong with winning an IBO world title but it needs to be recognised that there are more prestigious world titles on offer.
I rank the IBF & WBC world titles as the top tier world championships.
The WBA & WBO world titles are second tier world championships (I've downgraded the WBA title after their treatment of the Geale v Mundine fight).
The IBO world title is third tier. Again, nothing wrong with that but once you've won an IBO title & made a few defences of it as a development exercise, it's time to aspire to something more significant.
