Danny Green last night overcame Anthony Mundine in a rematch ten years in the making, avenging his 2006 loss in what could be the final bout of both fighters careers.
Fittingly, controversy was not far with many and media sources disagreeing with the scorecards, in particular a one-sided 98-90 score from judge Hubert Minn. Judge Tom Ferrauto scored it a 94-94 draw while judge Steve Morrow edged it to Green 96-94.
Green put to bed his rivalry with Mundine, giving him credit in his post-fight speech.
“I want everyone here to raise their hand and clap. I don’t care what you think, but for putting on a show for all you guys and for being one of the best athletes in the country – a hand clap for Anthony Mundine now please,” the 43-year-old said.
On the undercard, Tim Tszyu, the son of former world champion Kostya took his pro record to 2-0 with a TKO win over Mark Dalby while Rugby Union international Quade Cooper made easy work of Jack McInnes.
