Medley vs Hlatshwayo on Fox Sports.

Hlatshwayo is a great test for him.
Medley has the height & reach, so lets hope he can pull it off.

It is a good start, although I wouldn't call it a true world title. IBO is probably the next biggest sanctioning body after the other Major 4 (WBC,WBA, IBF & WBO). Its still better then the WBF :(

The IBO world title isn't the major interest for me, its only marginally better than winning a regional title.
The quality of opponent is what impresses me.
Hlatshwayo is a massive step in the right direction for Medley, & after 18 fights, you gotta say now is his time.
Medley wins this impressively & he is top 20 at Welterweight in the world.
