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.
Dream big good on wild will great lil chap!! Good luck hope they pull it off
