Mundine beats Rabchenko in split decision



By Melissa Woods, 12 Nov 2014


Anthony Mundine wound back the clock to outclass Belarusian boxer Sergey Rabchenko and keep alive his dream of another world title.
The Australian veteran used his experience and ring smarts at Melbourne’s Hisense Arena to nullify his younger opponent’s power and win on a split points decision.

The victory gave the 39-year-old the WBC silver light middleweight title and moved him closer to a fight with American pound-for-pound king and WBC light middleweight title holder Floyd Mayweather.

disappointing result for rabchenko.

seems like it was close from everything i've read.

paid for a slow start by the looks of it.

ricky moaning a little on twitter.

seems a fair verdict from the feedback though.

He was to slow to beat Mundine, to beat Mundine you need speed, prime Kessler was fast, you could noticed he started slowing down not many years after when he fought Calzaghe.

They were banking on a ko i guess, surely Ricky didn't think he could beat Mundine by points.

To sum it up, apart from been a great body puncher, 1st guy to hurt Mundine with a body punch, apart from that Rabchenko is garbage.

Mundine has been uping his game lately ( a set back in his last outing), but the MAN does not want to go away quietly... and that you got to respect.  It's also what makes him dangerous and a wild card for top fighters.

A fight with Mayweather or Saul will be huge for Australian boxing, he is good enough to be competitive against them guys.

He has to be willing to travel to America, his manager has little chance of brining them here.

Eric, how can Mundame "outclass" his opponent and only win by SD in his own backyard?
