Jeff Fenech, one of the greatest boxers Australia has ever produced has joined in the chorus of people saying Anthony Mundine was robbed in his rematch with Danny Green.

Mundine is challenging the outcome of the controversial bout, looking to get the result changed from a majority decision win in favour of Green to a no contest.

Both fighters have criticised the refereeing and the judging of the fight, with even Green saying one judge's scorecard was outrageous.

"It was one of the most heroic performances in Australia's boxing history," he said.

"Even that he had the balls to put on more than 10 kilos and get into the ring against a bigger and stronger man.

"Without doubt, Choc won on the night."

Fenech was a vocal critic of the bout in the lead-up to the fight, saying the weight difference between the pair would make it too dangerous.
