2011-09-03 Andre Berto w rtd 5 Jan Zaveck, Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, Biloxi, Mississippi, USA - IBF. Referee: Fred Steinwinder.

After Berto relinquished the IBF title on 8 November in order to pursue a rematch with Victor Ortiz, Randall Bailey and Mike Jones were in pole position to find a new champion. Both men had come through eliminating contests, Bailey beating Jackson Osei Bonsu (w rsc 1 at the Lotto Arena, Merksem, Antwerp, Belgium on 19 March 2010) and then being involved in a two-round no-decision affair at the same venue against Said Ouali on 10 December 2010, while Jones had defeated Sebastian Andres Lujan (w pts 12 at Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York on 3 December 2011). Although the fight went out to purse bids in January 2012, it would not go on until the following June for a number of reasons.
