IBF lighweight title update

When Joan Guzman defeated Ali Funeka last month, the IBF lightweight title remained vacant as Guzman weighed in over the 135 pound weight limit. The IBF then ordered the two highest rated available lightweights to fight for the vacant title which were #5 Miguel Vazquez of Mexico and #6 rated Ameth Diaz of Panama. However the IBF had already approved an eliminator between #6 Diaz and #8 Ji-Hoon Kim of South Korea. The winner of Diaz vs. Kim will fight the leading available contender for the vacant title.
