Mundine's legacy of idiocy

As Anthony Mundine prepares for his boxing swansong against Daniel Geale at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on Wednesday night, he could not be accused of going quietly.
Should we have expected anything else?
To call Mundine outspoken is like describing Roger Federer as a good tennis player - it just doesn't go far enough. There is no filter between brain and mouth, and his rants provide little evidence of a deep thinker.


Quote:
Some younger readers may not know that our Anthony had a knack for making himself look stupid well before he ever started throwing punches for money. Remember his assertions that the reason he never played rugby league for his country was because Kangaroos selectors were racist?
What about how six weeks after the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington he went on the Today Show and said America had it coming?
"They call it an act of terrorism, but if you can understand religion, and our way of life, it's not about terrorism," he said at the time.
"It's about fighting for God's laws, and America's brought it upon themselves for what they've done in the history of time."


Quote:
Like a broken Fujitsu, Mundine is unable to gauge the temperature in a room. Or if he can, he doesn't care.
Wednesday's bout is for the IBF middleweight championship of the world, the first time two Indigenous Australians have clashed for a major world title.
Of course, Mundine found a way to sully even that - cruelly dismissive of his Tasmanian opponent's heritage.
"I thought they wiped all the Aborigines from Tasmania out," Mundine said in October.
"Where is there a cut-off point? There's got to be a cut-off point. That's something the government has got to work on.
"He's got a white woman, he's got white kids. I keep it real, all day every day."
The latest controversy is his plan to boycott - or not - the Australian national anthem before the fight, in protest at the way the country treats its Aboriginal citizens.
Perhaps he should sit down during the anthem - if the bout goes as expected, it will be Mundine's last chance to make a statement in front of a decent crowd.
Quote:
Mundine's is a sad story. He was a prodigiously talented man - both as a rugby league player and as a boxer - but never made the most of his gifts in either field.He's spent the latter half of his boxing career taking easy money, and make no mistake: fighting Geale will be all about redundancy pay for 'The Man'.
