Kennedy Loses Majority Decision in PA Rematch!

Windsor Mill, MD middleweight "Relentless" Julius Kennedy lost a 10-round majority decision in a rematch against Harry Joe Yorgey of Bridgeport, PA Saturday night at the Valley Forge Casino and Resort in Valley Forge, PA.

This was a rematch of their bout exactly three months ago at the Convention Center in Valley Forge that Yorgey won on the scorecards but many believed Kennedy earned a victory.

Reportedly, this was another hard-fought battle where Yorgey seemed to land more of the telling blows.  Two of the scorecards said that with Yorgey getting 96-94 decisions. One judge saw a draw at 95-95.  Yorgey also wins the vacant WBF
North American Middleweight title.

With the loss, Kennedy is now 7-6-1, three KO's.  Yorgey rises to 27-2-1, 12 KO's.
