Cathal Pendred agrees to rematch on Twitter after controversial decision in Boston

Anytime, anywhere

Pendred’s bitter Boston opponent asked for a rematch via Twitter, and the Dubliner didn’t hesitate to respond

The Punisher battled to earn a highly dubious decision victory over Sean Spencer in Boston at the weekend.

Pendred had slightly more significant strikes and scored four takedowns in the fight which swayed the judges’ on Sunday night. The judges scored the fight 29-28, 30-27, 30-27 in favour of the Irishman.

However, both Twitter and Spencer seemed aggrieved at what they felt was an unfairly scored fight. The argument was that Spencer did far more damage with his punches and stuffed a lot more takedowns than were landed.

Spencer broke his silence on Twitter and demanded a rematch with Pendred.

Spencer then tagged Pendred in a tweet, explaining his desire to fight the Dubliner again. Pendred responded with class, saying he was open to the idea of doing battle with Spencer again to settle the score.
