By Miguel Angel Cebreros,

After his surprising two round knockout over Argenis Mendez to snatch the world super featherweight championship of the International Boxing Federation (IBF), unbeaten Cuban Rances Barthelemy (20-0, 13 KOs) wants to unify against the champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), also unbeaten, Miguel Angel "Mickey" Garcia (33-0, 28 KOs).

Appearing on ESPN Deportes Radio, Barthelemy publicly asked Garcia for a unification encounter - should Garcia come through in his upcoming title against Mexican Juan Carlos Burgos on January 25 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Barthelemy wants to prove which of them is the best fighter at 130-pounds.
Also, Barthelemy has a fight of his own to deal with. Mendez has filed an appeal to overturn the result of the KO loss. When the referee failed to separate the fights at the close of the second, the Cuban slugger clocked Mendez with two shots, that came after the bell, and the referee counted Mendez out.

Lol Barthelemy ain't fking around but I think he is out of his depth he always has that chin up in the air like a big ass target Garcia would probably tap that azz, Gamboa should be the one popping that cherry he has been after it the longest after all fair is fair.

No chance in hell. Mikey is just all around too solid of a fighter. Barthelemy is good but his execution is sort of weak. Garcia will exploit his many flaws and will end up knocking him out.[/QUOTE] I don't know about Barthelemy's "many" flaws, but one that concerns me is his habit of throwing...

[QUOTE=SkillspayBills]I would love to watch this bout.
