Argenis Mendez, 24-5-1-(12), scored a 10 round split decision win over world ranked lightweight Ivan Redkach, 20-3-1-(16), at the Sportsmans Lodge, Studio City, California on Tuesday. 


At the end of 10 hard fought rounds the difference between the two was when referee Raul Caiz Jr deducted a point from Redkach for a headbut in round three. The scores were 96-93,95-94, 95-94.


Speaking on Mendez said:“I used my skill and my speed throughout the fight, but I waited to come forward until the fourth or fifth round.I knew he wasn’t going to be able to knock me out because I have great defense. I see every punch.”


“The judges were wrong; I won that fight,” Redkach insisted. “I felt that I knocked him down and the referee didn’t call it, and he took the point away and that cost me.


“I never felt any pain. I fought like I wanted to and I thought I did enough. They were wrong. This was my night.”


“I thought the scorecards were too close,” Mendez countered. “I thought I won by a much larger margin.”
