In brief: Why ever?

Mono is a viral infection that is not aided by antibiotics.
Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) will also expose you to the risks of an antibiotic side effect, and with mono, a large percentage will break out in a measles like rash specific to Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) or Amoxicillin ingestion.
