A Big fight that made the IBF a big sanctioning fee.
That is always the way in boxing. For example Leonard coming back, having never fought as a Middleweight and only having one win over a fringe contender at 154lbs in the last five years, gets a 'title' fight with Hagler and Messrs Graham, Olajide et al are 'overlooked'...
