Barthelemy Vows to Destroy Argenis Mendez in the Rematch and Challenges all Fighters at 130 Pounds

Crowned, and then uncrowned, IBF Junior Lightweight champion Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy (19-0, 12 KOs) is having two reactions to the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry’s decision to change his January 3 title-winning and devastating KO over former, and now current, champ Argenis Mendez to a “No Decision.”

“First off, I could not disagree more,” said Barthelemy. “This decision to take away my title is a terrible one. The referee did not call a foul that night, so how can a commissioner over-rule him by watching TV, weeks later? I am better stronger and more talented than him and I knocked him out. Now I have to do it again.”

Rances Barthelemy the new champion – or is he?

Boxing started the new year with something which seems to go hand in hand with the sport – controversy.  At the Target Center in Minneapolis on Friday night, the IBF super-featherweight championship changed hands when mandatory contender, Cuba’s Rances Barthelemy, 20-0 (13), knocked out the defending champion Argenis Mendez, 21-3-1 (11), of the Dominican Republic at the end of the second round.  The first televised show of the new year in the US was, overall, very entertaining and full of incident.

Argenis Mendez not leaving Barthelemy Jan. 3 World title fight in judges’ hands

International Boxing Federation (IBF) Junior Lightweight World Champion Argenis “La Tormenta” Mendez (21-2-1, 11 KOs) has vowed not to leave the outcome of his January 3 title defense against No. 1 mandatory challenger Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy (19-0, 12 KOs), airing live on the 2014 ESPN Friday Night Fights season opener, in the hands of the judges.

Mendez, fighting out of Brooklyn (NY), will make his second world title defense against Barthelemy at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The 2004 Dominican Republic Olympian learned an invaluable lesson in his first world title defense, fighting a controversial 12-round draw with Arash Usmanee last August, in which most observers felt Mendez clearly won, on the first event ever presented by his promoter, Iron Mike Productions (IMP).
