    I don't doubt your research, but what fringe of a fringy fringe version of the title did Michael Grant win? Was the Golota bout for some sort of championship? PeteLeo.

    He beat AL Cole for the IBC Heavyweight Title. Is that fringe enough for you?

    Pretty fringey. Any sentence containing the words heavyweight title and Al Cole is pretty far out in the ether, it would seem to me. PeteLeo.

    Big George may have said, about this organization: "Legitimate belt. Ah Bee See? They make a tasty root-beer."
