He has officially relinquished his IBF Jr Middleweight Title. Harrison vs Hurd will fight for the vacant title.
I think this is a great addition to the middleweight division and creates a few exciting potential battles. I'd like to see him in against the Lemieux/ Stevens winner. Derevyanchenko looks dangerous. Saunders, Lee, Eubank Jr, Sulecki, N'Jikam, Khurtsidze, Johnson, add in Canelo & Cotto. I wonder how long before we see Lara following suit. I think he is competitive with anyone in the division.
