To what level did Anthony Mundine play Rugby? I think he was League not Union ..... or was he both?

Rugby's not a sport I follow but I was under the impression he played at a decent level.

Mundine was the highest payed player in the NRL.

However, a bunch of plastic titles do not mean shit.
His fathers career is worthy of higher respects.

Wiki says:

Originally Klitschko was an amateur kickboxer. In 1992 he was knocked out in the final of the European Kickboxing Championships +89 kgs Light-Contact division by Pelé Reid. In 1996 he turned professional and compiled a record of 34-1 with 22 knockouts.

Dunno about being a champion, decent record though.

Mmmm I believe Mendoza debunked that knockout loss. Vitali's appendix burst just as he was hit. Doesn't count.

You'd be wrong. As I said, plenty of Muay Thai fighters (The Galaxy bros, Payakaroon, Muangsurin, etc.) have made the transition well, even becoming champions.
