Dib returns Sept 2

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former IBO 130 pound champion Billy “The Kid” Dib (27-1,15KO’s) will be in action against Ceferino “El Pelado” Labarda (19-1,7KO’s) of Argentina over eight rounds at the La Montage Reception Center, Sydney, NSW, Australia on September 2nd. Labarda is 29 years and is a southpaw with only loss coming at the hands of IBF 122 pound champion Steve Molitor who scored a TKO win in ten rounds in 2008. Dib’s scored his most impressive win in 2007 when he scored a shutout eight round decision win over world rated Rogers Mtagwa in Madision Square Garden in New York.

Steve Luevano outscored Dib over twelve rounds in WBO featherweight title bout in 2008 but in 2009 Billy stopped fellow Australian Davey Browne in six action rounds in the best Aussie Fight for that Year. IBF#4 Dib is chasing a shot at IBF featherweight champion Orlando Salido.
