IMO he never acquired a genuine world title from any legit org.

He got the interim WBA light middleweight strap from Rigo Alvarez (Canelo's shitty brother), who took it via home-brewed gift decision against Nobuhiro Ishida. Fair deuce, Rigo did bother Ishida with his pressure and hurt him a couple of times but for 90% of the match he was cleanly outboxed. So Rigo should've never had it. To boot, Rigo was coming directly off a loss to Austin Trout for the real (non-interim) WBA title. So Mundine having that piece of tin handed to him, only having to beat the pedestrian Alvarez, is basically a giant farce.

Both of his super middleweight reigns began by scooping up a vacancy rather than seizing from a currently active champion.

So if you discount vacant and interim deals, he was never world champ. Of course, technically he can (and does) claim to be 3-division.
