By Sulayman Bah Boxer Patrick Mendy from Gambia is the newly crowned World BoxingBoxer Patrick Mendy 2 Foundation (WBF) middleweight division champion. 24-year-old Mendy secured the belt after shoving off stiff competition from Robert Swierzbinksi in Poland. Mendy who now resides in Maidenhead in the United Kingdom thrashed his Polish opponent onpoints after all three judges ruled in the Gambian’s favour. The erstwhile prize-money fighter champion cut a domineering figure over his ring adversary despite going with an inexperienced corner trainer. Dubbed ‘Tiger’, Patrick’s new height means the days of being overlooked as a light feather has past and he’ll be able to take on Britain and Europe’s top ring starlets with sponsorship and proper agents on his side. The new World Boxing Foundation champion will be eying to improve upon his sixteen victories  (one KO) eight defeats and one draw from twenty-five fights.]]>
