Oosthuizen Vacates IBO Crown, Officially Moves To 175

IBO World Super Middleweight champion Tommy Oosthuizen moves up to Light Heavyweight.
After seven IBO World title super middleweight defenses, due to his difficulty in continuing to make the weight, Tommy notified the IBO that he has moved up to the light heavyweight division.
At the still very young age of 26 we are sure that he will again be a world champion at this higher weight and wish him the very best.
The vacant IBO World Super Middleweight title will now be sanctioned for the two leading available contenders.

[QUOTE=Freedom2014;14452831]Unfortunately, looks like he's back with Berman. He should have moved to the US and signed with a better promoter like Main Events.[/QUOTE] Yes he has re-joined Berman unfortunately - I have nothing against Berman but he does not do…
