Amateur[edit]

The southpaw represented his native country at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, where he was defeated in the first round by Germany's Sven Ottke on points (4-11).

Pro[edit]

Jean-Paul made his professional debut on December 22, 2000, when he beat countryman Guy Dia-Njoh on knock-out in the second round. He was undefeated as professional for 29 matches.

Mendy fought Sakio Bika on July 31 in Las Vegas, for an IBF #1 spot and a shot at the title. Bika lost the fight by disqualification in the 1st round after he knocked Mendy out with a punch following a knockdown and while Mendy was still on his knees.
