IBO doesn't count but fake ass belts given out by the WBC and WBA do? It's all the same *****. Wlad Klitschko has the IBO belt.
It's not the same as winning a true world championship like Hopkins did, I would certainly agree with that, but it's still a title and not many 40+ year olds have done that, regardless of the organization.
