By Rick Reeno

Leon Margules, CEO of Warriors Boxing, was the only bidder at today's purse bid, which was ordered by the International Boxing Federation - and Margules secured the rights to the super featherweight fight between IBF champion Argenis Mendez (21-2-1, 11KOs) and undefeated mandatory challenger Rances Barthelemy (19-0, 12KOs). Margules, who promotes Barthelemy, placed down a bid of $51,000. He wants to stage the fight in early 2014. Iron Mike Productions, who promote Mendez, did not attend the purse bid.
