Stuart Halls promoter, Dennis Hobson informed Boxing Scene just moments ago that the British bantamweight will get a chance to win back his IBF world title when he fights Randy Caballero (21-0, 13 KOs) for the vacant strap, possibly in September.

Paul Butler, who earlier last month beat Hall (16-3-2, 7KOs) by 12-round decision to win the title, recently decided to relinquish his first world title and move back down to his more natural home of super flyweight in an attempt to win more world honours.

Hobson, who has proved time after time that hes more than capable of getting his fighters world title opportunities, was quick to lobby the IBF who sanctioned this fight earlier today.

Its just been sanctioned by the IBF this afternoon. The IBF have been confirmed it, Hobson revealed.

I think it happens September time, I think itll happen quickly. Stuart wants his title back, he werent banged up in the Butler fight so straight back in and lets go for it.

Hobson told Scene that the venue had still to be decided upon.

Im not sure, Im going to talk to Boxnation (who broadcasted Hall v Butler) and see what theyve got on, Im going to negotiate with the Americans (Golden Boy Promotions). I spoke to Stuart and he said wherever it is he just wants to go and get his title back. Wherever it is well make it happen.

Says a lot for his promoter that Hall had a high enough ranking to get a title fight in the first place. Then they set him up in a title fight against a guy who had recently lost every round to Santa Cruz and had been KO'd in 1 round by Hasegawa. Hall's never been more than maybe a top 20 bantamw...

Lee Haskins surely should have been the man to fight for the vacant title against Caballero? He has schooled Hall and beat McDonnell in a close fight, while Hall and McDonnell get chance after chance at vacant belts Haskins gets ignored.

It sure looks like Hall got lucky here, unfortunately he won't be so luck come fight night!
