Photos: Mendez Gets Revenge With Drilling Salgado KO
By Reynaldo Sanchez
At "The Hangar" in Costa Mesa, California - Argenis Mendez (21-2, 11 KOs) made good on the opportunity to get revenge with a thrilling second round knockout of Juan Carlos Salgado (26-2-1, 16 KOs) to capture the IBF super featherweight championship. Mendez dropped Salgado in the first with a hard right and then drilled him hard with a left in the fourth for a big knockout win. Salgado won a controversial twelve round decision over Mendez in 2011.
Mendez looked superb showed aggression and countered when the opportunity opened up. Uchiyama is not even an option WBO seems to be getting a foothold in Japan but don't expect IBF anytime soon, Gamboa/50 will pretend Mendez doesn't existComment by S. Saddler 1310 on 03-10-2013

[QUOTE=Cubanborn87;13130360]wow absolutely sick ko[/QUOTE] Oi he also called out Gamboa, if Gamboa isn't dead set on fighting at 135, we got some pretty interesting fights at 130, a division that's been dead for a really long time.Comment by Cubanborn87 on 03-10-2013
