Argenis Mendez knocked out Juan Carlos
Salgado in the fourth round to win the IBF Junior Lightweight belt on Saturday
night.

Mendez (21-2, 11 KOs) knocked the champion Salgado (26-2-1, 16 KOs) down with
a right in the first round, then dropped him again in the fourth with a left
hook to claim the belt.

This was a rematch of a September 2011 fight that saw Salgado win in a
unanimous decision.
