Mendez (21-2-1) retained his IBF junior lightweight belt in the marquee attraction of Mike Tyson's first promotional fight card. Tyson, a member of the Boxing Hall of Fame, has organized an outfit called ``Iron Mike Productions,'' and his aim is to be a full-service agency for up-and-coming fighters, who can learn the sport, in and out of the ring, from one of the greatest.

Usmanee improved to 20-1-1 in the event, which was tabbed ``Tyson Is Back!''

In another bout, Jesus Andres Cueller (23-1) outlasted previously undefeated Claudio Marrero (14-1, 11 KOs) to win the vacant World WBA interim featherweight championship.
