Lucian Bute-Jean Paul Mendy on July 9 in Romania?

By Per Ake Persson

There´s no official confirmation but Romanian media writes that the opponent will be French veteran Jean Paul Mendy, 29-0-1 in a career that began back in 2000. Mendy´s manager Gabriel Gaide only commented that Jean Paul will "fight soon".
 
Jean Paul Mendy has plugged away for a long time without getting the big breaks, he´s held the French title and fought to a draw against Anthony Hanshaw in 2007 in a fight for the IBO title. In July of last year Mendy was floored and then knocked out cold while on the canvas against Sakio Bika and subsequently won by way of disqualification. This was an IBF eliminator.
