2010-09-01 Mzonke Fana w pts 12 Cassius Baloyi, Carnival City Arena, Brakpan, Gauteng, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Deon Dwarte. Scorecards: 119-109, 118-110, 119-110. Contested for the vacant title after Robert Guerrero handed in his belt.

Fana forfeited the IBF title on 20 May 2011, having signed up to defend against Argenis Mendez before pulling out due to not being properly prepared, and the latter was matched against Juan Carlos Salgado to decide a new champion. Mendez had beaten Baloyi (w pts 12 at the Carnival City Arena on 29 January 2011) in an eliminator to get his title shot, while Salgado was coming off two wins over Guadalupe Rosales.
