In what was a huge upset, Pender (159¾) relieved Robinson (159¼) of his title when he allowed the latter to do all the work for the first seven rounds before making his move. With Robinson beginning to tire Pender made his move in the eighth and despite being cut over left eye in the ninth he began to open up with rights and lefts to the chin that slowed the champion down even more. Dominating the rest of the contest, often landing three-punch combinations to the head, Pender took his fight record to 36 wins in 43 contests on receiving the decision.
