Mundine vs Medley update

By Ray Wheatley–World of Boxing

Former WBA 168 pound champion Anthony Mundine (37-3, 23 KOs) has decided not to challenge for the vacant IBO 154 pound title against Robert Medley (27-2, 17 KOs) and will now be contesting for the vacant WBA international 160 pound title at the Entertainment Center in Sydney, NSW, Australia on January 11. Mundine would not accept the IBO officials that were appointed and wanted to have officials from the state of New South Wales. There was speculation that Mundine was struggling to make the 154 pound limit and will be stronger fighting at 160. Medley’s manager Bill Treacy remained confident his boxer can cause an upset victory. “Rob has been in impressive and solid sparring sessions with Daniel Geale who gave Mundine the fight of his life last May in Brisbane. Geale was unlucky not to get the decision. Medley’s only losses has been to former IBF 147 pound champion Issac Hlatswayo but he is much stronger boxing in the heavier weight division.”
