1963- Jean Baptiste Mendy (born in Dakar, Senegal)
French former professional boxer of African origin. He's also a former WBC and WBA lightweight champion.
Mendy turned pro in 1983 and captured the vacant WBC lightweight title with a win over Lamar Murphy in 1996. He lost the title in his first defense to Stevie Johnston the following year. In 1998, he captured the WBA lightweight title with a decision win over Orzubek Nazarov. He defended the belt once before losing it to Julien Lorcy in 1999. He retired the following year.

1977- Joshua Clottey (born in Accra, Ghana)
Ghanaian professional boxer. Born in Accra, Ghana, Clottey now lives in the Bronx, New York. He is the former IBF welterweight champion. He's also the brother of veteran boxers Judas Clottey and Emmanuel Clottey.
As a child in his native Ghana, Clottey had a passion for soccer, a sport that was also played by his father. One day, a bully came to his neighborhood and started attacking everyone around, including him. After receiving a bad beating, the young Clottey some how got back. From there, he turned to boxing. Clottey moved and spent a few years in the United Kingdom then later to the United States.
Clottey rose to prominence by winning his first twenty fights, including 14 by knockout. His performance set him up to fight Carlos Baldomir, in a title defense by Baldomir for the WBC international welterweight title. Clottey lost by disqualification in a controversial fight. Clottey was winning until the 10th round, where he was penalized two points for an intentional head butt. He was warned for this but did it again resulting in the referee stopping the fight and disqualifying Clottey.
Clottey rebounded from the loss by winning the African Boxing Union welterweight title in his next fight. He then rolled off a 10 fight winning streak highlighted by his first win on American soil and capture of several minor welterweight and middleweight titles. The streak culminated in an IBF intercontinental welterweight title. On December 2, 2006, Clottey earned his first shot at a world title but broke his hand in the fourth round of his fight against World Boxing Organization champion Antonio Margarito. On April 7, 2007, Clottey earned a unanimous decision over Diego Corrales, in what was Corrales's final fight before his death. In December 2007, Clottey positioned himself for another title shot with a win over prospect Shamone Alvarez. Clottey beat Zab Judah on August 2, 2008, for the IBF welterweight title vacated by Antonio Margarito.
On June 13, 2009 Clottey faced Miguel Cotto in New York at Madison Square Garden for the WBO welterweight title. Cotto dropped Clottey in the first with a jab. Cotto was cut in the third round by an accidental head butt. Clottey's combinations throughout the fight gave Cotto problems. Cotto emerged the winner with a split decision.
Clottey fought eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao on March 13, 2010 in Arlington, Texas, at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium following the disagreement on terms of a proposed boxing match between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. which would have been scheduled on the same date in Las Vegas, Nevada. Clottey lost to Pacquiao by unanimous decision.
Fighting style
A tough, orthodox fighter, Clottey has a balanced combination of size, speed, stamina, power, ring savvy, and a solid chin. In addition, he is an accurate, efficient puncher with effective countering ability. His defensive skills are top notch; he stands upright while holding his arms and gloves high to protect himself, which is similar to Winky Wright's defensive stance. As a result of his defensive prowess, has yet to lose via a knockout. His only four losses were: A DQ loss to Carlos Baldomir, unanimous decision loss to Antonio Margarito, split decision loss to Miguel Cotto, and a unanimous decision loss to Manny Pacquiao.
