No he's no longer IBO champ
Can't believe this guy is 30 already....honestly can't remember anyone he's fought other than Gongora, what a waste of a career.
16 fights in 9 and a half years, 4 of those were in the first 7 months of his career. Seriously, wtf?
This seems to be the pattern of many of these domestic fighters nowadays. I can only imagine their focus is on another career to provide or bad luck? Injuries, lack of promoter input, contract issues etc
I'm guessing boxing was just a hobby for him that he was pretty good at, nobody serious about it is this inactive. I've seen some fighters come out with "nobody wants to fight me" which I often find hard to believe, I know of one boxer, through people associated with him, who spun this one when really he was just ducking anyone and everyone better than him or considered on par with him unless he was offered stupid money.
Take a look at multiple British fighters who get to around British and above level. They seem to be fighting once a year now, it's crazy.
All waiting/expecting a cash out fight or an easy shot at a World Title, really depressing for the sport. I know it's prize fighting but you have to actually fight to win prizes.
