Green blasts Mundine over fight protest

Anthony Mundine has placed an appeal to the Australian National Boxing Federation to contest the result of Mundine v Green 2, much to the anger of his close rival Danny Green.

Many felt Mundine was harshly done by in the bout where ''Choc'' lost to Green by majority decision 94-94, 96-94 and 98-90.

The judge who posted a 98-90 spoke publicly about scoring the bout incorrectly and even Green admitted he didn't win by that big a margin.

“I didn’t win by eight points. No chance,” Green said.

“It was a close fight.”

That may have given Mundine the confidence to lodge an appeal, but Green is fuming over the 'unsportsmanlike' conduct.

“All it is is an appeal, it doesn’t mean anything’s going to happen,” Green told Perth radio station Mix 94.5.

“I expect nothing less from such a poor sport.

“He showed disgraceful sportsmanship in the ring and I expect nothing less from someone of his character — his poor character — after the fight.”

Green opened up about that 'dog shot' in the first round.

“I’m just disappointed not to carry it out how I felt for the first 30-45 seconds. I felt very confident he was s******* himself — you could see the look in his eyes,” Green said.

“I hit him with a couple of clean shots, I felt sharp early, then he threw that dog shot and it just changed the game.

“It was just a disgraceful foul, it was incredible that he did it.”
