Mendez to start training for first defense

International Boxing Federation (IBF) super featherweight champion Argenis “The Thunderstorm” Mendez (21-2-, 10 KOs) has arrived in England and joined his trainer, Lee Beard, to prepare for his first title defense. Mendez, a 2004 Dominican Republic Olympian now living in Miami, captured the IBF crown this past March in a rematch, destroying defending champion Juan Carlos Salgado in four rounds. Mendez is scheduled to defend his crown in the middle of July against an opponent to be determined.
