Mundine wins WBA title

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine defeated former WBA interim 154lb champion Rigoberto Alvarez by unanimous decision to win the WBA interim super welterweight world title. Mundine (43-4, 25 KOs) took the initiative at all times to Alvarez (27-4, 20 KOs) in twelve rounds and won 114-113, 117-111, 117-111. Mundine, 36, must now fight for the title against undefeated WBA “regular” super welterweight world champion Austin Trout. Alvarez is the brother of WBC super welterweight champ Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.
