Mundine should have been unloading with combinations, not backpeddling and potshotting with that jab. If you look at the fight on face value it would look good for Mundine, but have a think about it, and tell me how you believe the other top guys in the division would have faired against him. You have to take his opponents ability into account when measuring the success of his performance.
Mundine got tagged but lets be fair the hit percentage was something like 5% for Nievas.
I'll take on a few blokes starting with Mark De Mori then whoever else wants a go. However hitting below my nipples you will be warned for low blows
