ALA Promotions president  Michael Aldeguer says Rey “Boom Boom’ Bautista must first overcome undefeated Mexican power puncher Angel Mendoza (17-0-1, 17 KO’s) in their IBF International title fight at the Hoops Dome in Lapu Lapu City on December 10 before eyeing a world title fight against Australia’s Billy Dib.

The possibility of a title shot at Dib (33-1, 20 KO’s), the IBF featherweight champion came up after the champion defended his title for the first time with a smashing 1st round stoppage of No. 8 ranked contender Alberto Servidei (31-1-2, 7 KO’s) at the Homebush Sports Center in Sydney late Saturday.

IBF official and boxing writer Rey Wheatley raised the possibility in his story on the Dib title defense when he said “There are several contenders who are after a shot at Billy Dib’s IBF title including tough IBF No. 5 Filipino Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista and respected IBF No.11 Mikey Garcia of the US, who is the brother of Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire’s trainer and former world champion Robert Garcia.

Aldeguer revealed that “this was mentioned before but we’ll study options after this fight” against Mendoza.  He said Bautista knows this is a crucial fight and has been training hard for what is expected to be an action-packed battle of knockout artists.

Dib started aggressively and controlled the tempo of the fight before he maneuvered Servidei into a neutral corner and hammered him with a barrage of punches before finishing him off with a vicious left to the ribs dropped the Italian who was counted out by referee Pete Podgorski of the US at 2:38 of the opening round.
