Boxing Purist's picture

Robinson is the only man to do anything for the first five frames, he wins this sessions with little resistance. Unless the judges were scoring the rabbit punches Pender was throwing in abundance, I don't know how those frames can be scored for anyone but Sugar Ray. Which makes it all the more baffling one judge only scored one session for Robinson with two even. In my view Ray had his title stolen in Boston, and from the look of things they stole what should have been his regaining the Middleweight crown.

Boxing Purist's picture

Pender was very unsportsmanlike from beginning to end, and can't punch a lick. I'd be surprised if he threw 150 legal punches over the fifteen frames. Not Ray's best, but at 40 I still thought he did more than enough to rest the crown, Cannot see how that fight can be awarded to Pender, let alone one judge scoring all but one round in his favor. His (legal) offensive attack was nonexistent for well over half this contest.
