IBF Permits Wladimir Klitschko and Tony Thompson Fight

Earlier I posted information about how the fight was confirmed between Tony Thompson and Wladimir Klitschko to be held on July 12th, 2008. However, the confirmation by the IBF to allow this fight to proceed wasn't complete at the time. Now the IBF has accepted the permission for Wladimir to face WBO mandatory challenger Tony Thompson instead of their(IBF) mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin. So this means the fight will definitely happen between Wlad and Tony on July 12th and without the fear of Wladimir being stripped by the IBF for not taking on their mandatory challenger. Good news all around!
