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).
