50 cent's Aussie boxer could opt for rematch after loss

SYDNEYSIDER Billy Dib could take up the option of a rematch after losing his IBF world featherweight boxing title to unbeaten Russian Evgeny Gradovich in Connecticut.

In his first outing for new promoter, US rapper 50 Cent, Dib lost a split points decision to take his record to 35-2.

The Aussie needed stitches in cuts over his right eye and on the left side of his head, and blamed the loss on not following instructions.
