Selcuk Aydin To Face Ignacio Mendoza on Sept. 27

By Per Ake Persson

Newly crowned IBF I/C jr. welterweight champ Ignacio "Natxo" Mendoza, 38-7-2, will defend the title against Turk Selcuk Aydin, 25-2, on September 27 in Istanbul, writes
Both men won fights in Cuxhaven on July 27 and that set up this fight. After losses at welter in the US to Roberto Guerrero and Jesus Soto Karass, Aydin decided to drop down to jr. welter and this will be his first major fight in his new weight division. Mendoza, from Colombia but based in Spain, is a very good, experienced boxer with a good punch but his chin is not the strongest and this where the harder punching, stronger Aydin will have his chance.
The show September 27 is promoted by Arena Box Promotion and will be aired in Europe by EuroSport.
