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.
