By Ron Jackson

Mzonke Fana will make the first defence of his IBF junior lightweight belt against mandatory challenger Argenis Mendez from the Dominican Republic on June 11 at Carnival City, Brakpan, South Africa.

Since this setback Mendez who is the USBA super featherweight champion has racked up wins against Arturo Gomez, Anthony Napunyi, Morris Chule, Martin Honorio, Shamir Reyes and Baloyi.
