Former world champion, Anthony Mundine (47-4), suffered a TKO loss at the hands of Charles Hatley (25-1-1) at the Convention Centre in Victoria, Australia.
Hatley got three knockdowns early on in the bout, yet Mundine fought back, sending Hatley to the canvas late in the bout. However, in the 11th round, Mundine was sent crashing to the canvas again and referee, Bruce McTavish, called a halt to the fight.
Both Hatley and Mundine were chasing a place in the WBC tournament to claim the belt previously held by Floyd Mayweather Jr.. With dreams of a title shot shattered for Mundine he must now decide whether it’s time to hang up his gloves. Hatley, on the other hand, will be a strong contender to feature in the upcoming tournament.
