Photos: Barthelemy Grabs IBF Gold in Mendez Rematch

Rances Barthelemy is the new IBF super-featherweight champion after a unanimous points win over Argenis Mendez in Miami. Bathelemy improved his record to 20-0 after all three judges scored the fight 115-111 in favour of the Cuban.

Barthelemy had beaten Mendez back in January via a second round stoppage only for the decision to be changed to a "no contest" after replays confirmed the fight-ending combination had come after the bell. There was no such controversy this time, although the margin of victory could have been greater for Barthelemy after he was deducted points in the ninth and 10th rounds for low blows.
