Anthony Mundine

Clottey defeats Mundine in huge upset

In a huge upset, #14 WBA Joshua Clottey (38-4, 22 KO’s) defeated #3 WBA Anthony Mundine (46-6, 27 KO’s) by a lopsided 12 round unanimous decision on Wednesday night at the Entertainment Centre, Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia.

Clottey was supposed to be a safe fight for the 38-year-old Mundine to win in order to stay in line for a title shot against WBA junior middleweight champion Erislandy Lara. However, Clottey didn’t go along with the program, as he knocked the slow moving Mundine down 5 times in the fight with his still fast hooks to the head. Mundine was down once in rounds 3, twice in the 6th, once in the 8th, and a final time in the 10th. The final judger scores were 116-108, 115-109, and 117-108. Continue reading

Anthony Mundine faces Carson Jones on January 29th in Australia

mundine1The soon to be 39-year-old Anthony Mundine (45-5, 27 KO’s) will continue his slow climb to a title shot at 154 when he faces welterweight Carson Jones (35-10-3, 25 KO’s) on January 29th in a scheduled 10 round bout at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Boondall, Queensland, Australia. Mundine recently beat 42-year-old Shane Mosley by a 6th round stoppage last November in Australia. Mundine looked huge compared to the smallish Mosley in that fight and it was odd-looking fight.

For fans who don’t remember, Mundine has fought most of his career in the super middleweight division and he previously captured the WBA 168 lb. title and held it on two separate occasions. Mundine has come down in weight in hopes of getting a big fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. Mundine is currently ranked #4 WBA, #10 WBC in the junior middleweight division, and is striking distance to a title shot against Mayweather, if he doesn’t vacate his belt.

Mosley was ruled out by Doctor Lou Lewis and referee Raul Caiz senior but the three division titlist was being dominant by an impressive Mundine who put on his best display since edging Daniel Geale in 2009.

Mundine stops Mosley, becomes the first man to do so – “The Man” calls out Mayweather!

mundine53Moments ago in Sydney Australia, Anthony Mundine forced Sugar Shane Mosley to retire on his stool after six-rounds. Mosley, far past his best at age 42, claimed he had injured his back and remained in his corner after the 6th. Mundine, now 45-5(27) made something of a statement in the rearranged fight by becoming the very first man to halt the former multi-weight ruler and future Hall of Famer.

Mundine, the four-years younger man, was too big and strong for the slow-looking Mosley. Dominating with his jab in the early going, Mundine had to take some good shots from Mosley in the 4th-round, a good action round that saw “The Man” also shake Mosley. Mundine dominated the 5th and 6th-rounds, before the retirement from Mosley. Continue reading
