He looks like a sucker for a right hook the way he continually drops his left hand.

His record is good though, and Mundine's getting on a bit now, so you never know.

Anthony Mundine wins third world title after split decision


    May 27, 2009

Anthony Mundine has won his third world title after claiming Daniel Geale's IBO middleweight crown in Brisbane.

Mundine (36-3 record) looked like having an early night after knocking Geale down early in the second of the scheduled 12 rounds.

But Sydney-based Tasmanian Geale recovered to hold his own against "The Man" and go the distance, only to lose by a split decision.

It was the first loss in Geale's 22-fight professional career.

More to come

Which quality opponents did you have in mind son?  The only guys he ever fought that were any good either saw out the fight or beat him.  Unless you count an aging Larry Holmes.

"He took his chance. I took his belt. I want to conquer the world. I've beaten everybody here. And I want to show the world my story. I'm the best athlete ever. Period. Do your research," Mundine said.

Only seen the highlights on Fox sports but any wonder it was a split decision, Mundine seemed to be getting hit an awful lot. He didnt seem to have that electric speed of his previous fights either. He will be breakfast for any of the REAL world champs. Cant wait.
How much of a joke was the bloke SBW fought?

Geale was rated #10 Middleweight in the world by Ring Magazine so The Man has a genuine claim to being included in the #7-#10 range of that division.

Ring Magazine rates Mundine #5 Super Middleweight in the world.

That's a fair reflection of his ability I think.

You don't get that high without being a very good fighter.

And he is a very good fighter, but he's short of the super elite level needed to be the 'greatest athlete on the planet' or even the very best Middleweight or Super Middleweight in the world.

The proliferation of organisations, divisions, titles etc was designed to allow fighters (and promoters) to access more big money fights. Good luck to them, I reckon the fighters deserve every penny they get, and Anthony does a good job generating income for himself and those he fights.

His dad was a very good fighter too. I'm sure he was genuinely ranked #2 Middleweight in the world at one time behind Monzon and BoxingRecords.Com rank him #44 Middleweight of all time. At his best I think his dad was probably a better fighter and  I doubt Anthony will be ranked any higher in the all time listings in any division when he retires.

If every human being in Australia lived their life the way Mundine lives his, the country would be broke.

DANNY GREEN is poised to sign a lucrative deal to box against one of the sport's all-time greats, multi-world champion Roy Jones jnr.

And in a boon for the sport locally, Jones, who made history by winning world titles in the middle, super-middle, light-heavy and heavyweight divisions, has indicated he'll fight Green in Australia. "We still have a way to go,'' Green said. "We've been in negotiations with Roy and his management for quite a while but it looks very promising.''

Jones has told sources in the US his coming fight plans include bouts with Jeff Lacy, England's Clinton Woods and Green, a former world champion who made a successful comeback from a 15-month retirement by defeating  South African Anthony van Niekerk in Perth last month.

At his peak, Jones played semi-professional basketball in the afternoon and then defended his titles that evening. He is a rap artist and has appeared in Hollywood movies, including The Matrix Reloaded, which was filmed in Sydney.

Jones's status as one of the boxing's great pound-for- pound fighters means he'd join first black world heavyweight champion Jack Johnson (who won his title in Sydney in 1908) as the greatest foreign fighter to compete in Australia.

Green is likely to fight on the undercard of the Jones-Jeff Lacy bout in New Orleans on August 22 to  raise his profile in the US and help to establish a pay-per-view audience in North America.

The Green-Jones bout in Australia later in the year has several potential income streams including pay-per-view, gate receipts, merchandise, sponsorships and broader marketing and tourism possibilities for the city  but Green insisted his desire to fight Jones stemmed from his "warrior spirit''.

"Roy is a genuine great, and it would be hard for me not to want to keep shaking his hand in the build-up to the bout because I respect him so much as I value what he has achieved,'' Green told The Sun-Herald. "He is a true champion but I am a fighter, and I am sure he'd respect, once the referee orders us to fight, I would want to beat him.

"Having a win over a Roy Jones jnr would be an honour, and it would be something you'd be proud to tell your grandkids because of the calibre of fighter he is.''

Green is ranked by Boxrec website as the world's third-best active light-heavyweight behind Americans Bernard Hopkins and Chad Dawson while Jones is fifth.

"There'll be people who'll say, at 40, Roy Jones jnr is past his best but I'd advise them to watch his last fight against Omar Sheika,'' Green said. ``He was awesome.''

Jones was ringside for two of Green's fights, including his 2002 KO win over Paul Smallman, which gained Green his first world ranking.

"Roy told the media after that fight he'd love to train me,'' Green said. "That obviously didn't happen, but it's crazy to think it looks as if we're going to fight.''

Green has resisted calls to fight locals Tim Bell, Shannan Taylor, Nader Hamden and Sakio Bika, preferring to chase big fights.

In one of the best world title fights seen in Australia in recent years, WBA#1 ranked middleweight Anthony Mundine (36-3, 23 KO’s) secured the IBO Middleweight title at the packed Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Australia this evening with a close split decision over previously unbeaten Daniel Geale (21-1, 13 KO’s). The former two-time WBA super-middleweight champion boxed impressively to secure his third world title in two different weight divisions. He used his superior speed and boxing ability to outwork Geale in a close and exciting battle fought in the centre of the ring. The work rate of both fighters was superb and contributed to the excitement of a close and entertaining boxing matchup. The 34 year old Mundine won by close scores of 116-113, 114-113 and the third judge scoring the fight 115-113 for Daniel Geale.

Many had predicted an upset victory for the 28 year old Geale from Tasmania and over $150,000 had been placed in bets for an upset victory in the week preceding the fight. Geale had an acclaimed amateur career, where he was five time Australian champion and won a Gold Medal at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester. However, it was the more experienced Mundine, boxing in his twelfth world title fight that was able to outscore his opponent in an exciting contest. He dropped Geale in the only knockdown of the fight in the second round.

In the opening round Geale attacked Mundine and scored with some effective three punch combinations which seemed to confuse Mundine who was expecting a boxing encounter. With a minute left in the round Mundine threw a number of combinations but missed as Geale ducked under his jabs and hooks and then threw a superb left hook that caught Mundine flush which seemed to shock him.

Mundine came out strong in the second, determined to impose his strength and dropped Geale in the opening minute with a left hook and referee Gary Dean issued a standing eight count. Geale recovered well and at the end of the both engaged in a toe to toe exchange as the bell went for the end of the round.

Mundine seemed to be settling into an effective boxing rhythm in the third round with his fast jab and Geale smothered some Mundine’s advances by pushing him to the ropes. He had some good success with punching on the inside which seemed to give Geale confidence.

As we entered the fourth round the fight was evenly matched with Geale seemingly gaining in confidence, despite his knockdown in the second. As Geale seemed to gain the advantage, Mundine roared back with combinations to ensure his opponent was not stealing the momentum. It was a close and exciting fight.

Both fighters proved their high rankings by all the governing bodies as the fight settled into a fast pace in the fourth and a Mundine hurt Geale with a left hook to the body, only for Geale to comeback and advance with a high work rate. At the end of the fifth round Mundine looked tired.

In the fifth round, Mundine threw less punches as he gained a respite and Geale appeared to take control of the centre of the ring, throwing large volumes of punches and winning the round, with less punches coming back from Mundine but still an air of excitement in the crowd as neither fighter was able to dominate in a close contest.

As the fight entered the second half both fighters went to “war” in the centre of the ring, neither prepared to concede an advantage to each other in the sixth and as one fighter seemed to hurt the other, both came back strongly to prevent any advantage and long stretches of momentum by either fighter. It was becoming a real 50/50 fight as he fight went on.

In the seventh round Geale was able to push Mundine on the back foot and push him back towards the ropes but Mundine was not prepared to concede and opened up in the centre of the ring with a fast combination of five punches. Mundine seemed like he was not going to relinquish his WBA mandatory ranking position without digging deep into the trenches.

Mundine seemed to gain the advantage in the eighth and started to put together several combinations and improved work rate, showing signs of his superior speed but in the last minute Geale unloaded some swarming combinations to push Mundine into the neutral corner. A stoppage for loose tape by referee Gary Dean seemed to slow Geale’s momentum at the end of the round which visibly frustrated him.

In the ninth round Mundine landed with a couple of effective uppercuts in the centre of the ring and bobbed and weaved away from the advancing Geale. Mundine was warned for use of the elbow on the inside by referee Gary Dean and at the end of the round Geale appeared to land a straight left and Mundine slipped to the floor on the centre ring logo but was controversially not awarded a knockdown, despite Geale landing an effective punch.

In the tenth round Mundine seemed to extend his slight advantage on the scorecards and gained some momentum but Geale landed a right that cut Mundine over the left eye that seemed to affect Mundine but he responded with a left and right that rocked Geale and seemed to move onto the back foot for the next thirty seconds. Both fighters were expectedly tired at the end of the tenth round in a close and tense battle.

As we entered the “championship rounds” the fight seemed too close to call with work rates similar but Mundine just catching the eye with fast combinations. A low blow by Mundine halted the action in the eleventh but after a brief respite Geale responded with a left hook, only for Mundine to catch the eye with a swift and fast left uppercut. As Geale now advanced, his superior speed seemed to be landing flush punches and catching the eye. He held the advantage on work rate and cleaner punches as the round ended, but Geale still appeared enthusiastic and determined.

At the midway point in the final round Geale hurt Mundine and wobbled him against the ropes but Mundine responded by digging deep and coming back with some good punches close in. This was Geale’s best round of the fight but Mundine dazzled with some fast combinations in the last twenty seconds.

Mundine’s manager Khoder Nassar confirmed at ringside that the Australian’s immediate future would be at middleweight and having cemented his mandatory WBA#1 position he was keen to face WBA champion Felix Sturm. He stated, “ We want to fight the best fighters at Middleweight and Felix Sturm is one of the best guys in the world at 160 pounds. He is extremely fast with fast hands and an excellent jab. He is a very good fighter and Anthony is at the stage of his career when he wants to take on the best in the middleweight division and as mandatory challenger he has earned his right to fight for the WBA title. It would be a superb fight and hopefully will take place in 2009.”

WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm (32-2-1, 14 KO’s) will make the seventh defence of his title on July 11th in Nuerburg, Germany against WBA#4 ranked Armenian Khoren Gevor (30-3, 16 KO’s).

In a special event on the undercard as part of the WBA awareness campaign, “KO to drugs” saw former Australian Rugby League Player Sonny Bill Williams stop Gary Gurr at 1.22 minutes of the second round in a heavyweight bout to raise awareness to the issue of drug abuse in global society and the WBA’s campaign.

As a result of the fight, Williams presented a cheque for $50,000 to a local drug rehabilitation centre after the contest was stopped in the second round, which was well received as part of the evening’s entertainment.
