Default Looks Like Billy Dib Has A World Title Eliminator Looming!!!

From what i have heard Billy Dib is set to face Mexican Orlando Salido(29-9-2 19Ko's) for the IBF's Number 1 spot at Featherweight.
Its set to be on the Michael Katsidis vs Joel Casamayor undercard on March 22.
Talk about a big day for Aussie boxing now.


This is the full article below...


Australia’s featherweight boxing sensation Billy Dib faces the biggest test of his young life next month when he takes on a Mexican mauler to become the world’s leading featherweight contender.
History’s richest fighter Oscar De La Hoya will promote Dib’s fight with Mexican Orlando Salido in Cabazon, California on March 22.
The winner will become the IBF’s No.1 featherweight contender with a guaranteed world title fight against champion Robert ``The Ghost’’ Guerrero.
But baby-faced Dib, undefeated in 17 pro fights and a favourite of both De La Hoya and his business partner and one-time fighting rival Shane Mosley, is just as motivated about the amateur debut of his 15-year-old brother Youssef who competes in the 48kg division at the Inglis Auctions Complex at Randwick tomorrow night.
The Dib-Salido fight will be part of a monster fight program in the California desert topped by another Australian sensation, Michael Katsidis, Toowoomba’s WBO Interim lightweight king, tackling Cuba’s Olympic gold medallist Joel Casamayor.
