Hungry Mundine claims title

ANTHONY Mundine claimed the WBA interim world light middleweight title in a unanimous points decision over Rigoberto Alvarez in Newcastle last night.

In a fight that could have ended his career had he lost, Mundine was far too hungry, coming out strongly before using his quick left jab to take control of the fight.

Two judges had 'The Man' winning comfortably 1117-111 while the third scored a tighter fight, 114-113.

But what was clear was with a host of NRL stars in his corner, Mundine's influence on the fight increased as the rounds ticked over and his Mexican opponent tired.

The former rugby league star soon got on top in the bout using the power of his right hand to attack a wound above Alvarez's left eye which opened up during a barrage of blows in the fourth round.
