In his first meaningful fight in four years, Clottey took the fight to Mundine, dropping him for the first time in round three. Clottey continued to attack, flooring Mundine twice in round six. Clottey scored his fourth knockdown in round eight. Mundine was down yet again in round ten, however “The Man” showed tremendous courage in taking his beating like a man for the full twelve. Scores were 116-108, 115-109, 117-108.
In the co-feature, cruiserweight David Aloua (11-1, 8 KOs) scored an explosive fourth round KO over previously unbeaten Brad Pitt (15-1, 12 KOs).
