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'...

It depends who you fight. McAllister fought journeyman, how would he everr rise in the ranks fighting guys like maihaita mutu? Why do you think he vacated to fight for the British title?

I was disagreeing with you. I'm saying hatton got a big fought off the back off it because he fought contenders, I can't really think of any others that did that. It was below domestic level.
