Listening to the Hooper interview, eating tea off my lap and typing this - who said men can't multi-skill?

Geez, young Hooper's got enthusiasm enough for an army!

Hooper dropped a juicy F bomb as well.

It was said with such passion that we let it through to the keeper.

Was great to hear from one of our now old warriors, Steve Aczel - his self depreciating sense of humour makes for great listening.

I remember (vaguely now) his wars with Tony Mundine - didn't realize that they'd had 3 goes at each other though.

This article after their 3rd bout is worth a read:



Mundine Sweeps Belts With Epic Win


Courier Mail - July 1981


There were three Australian titles at stake Friday night at Brisbane’s Festival Hall. Tony Mundine earned every one of them. And then some.

Mundine, the national heavyweight champion, kept that crown with a right lead-left hook combination that dropped Steve Aczel for the full count with 20 seconds left in the eighth round of an epic brawl, the third between the two warriors.

Mundine also reclaimed the Australian light-heavyweight belt, which he won from Aczel in 1975 via a 12th-round knockout in their first meeting, but had not defended since, as well as the newly minted cruiserweight title.

“My God, I’ve been in 89 fights and the first 88 couldn’t compare to this,” said an exhausted Mundine, who was badly cut over his left eye in the seventh and rocked several times.

The first such occasion came in the first round, one of the wildest in Australian history.

Mundine, who ran his record to 77-11-1 with 61 knockouts, nearly dropped Aczel with the first punch he threw, a tremendous right uppercut that landed flush just 10 seconds after the opening bell.

As soon as he regained his equilibrium, Aczel (27-5-1) responded with a thudding left hook to the ribs, followed by another that caused the champion to wince and tuck his right elbow to his body.

They went toe-to-toe for the rest of the first, with Aczel earning the better of most exchanges.

Mundine landed almost all the meaningful punches in the second, though, battering the arm-weary Aczel with a series of unanswered headshots in the final minute.

Aczel opened strong in the third, landing a pair of hard rights to the head, but Mundine reasserted himself by going up the ladder with left hooks and capping his offensive with a jarring right uppercut.

Aczel, who is three years younger, came out fresher in the fourth and dominated the round. He drew a warning for a low blow early on, but it seemed worth the reprimand as he battered a slowing Mundine with painful combinations, scoring with particular effect to the body and forcing his hands to drop.

The fifth was a virtual replay of the first, except this time Mundine came on strong in the final 30 seconds to earn the round on the scorecards of all three judges.

Things slowed in the sixth, as the fighters spent much of the round in clinches, with Mundine’s big right just above the belt-line early on proving decisive.

The slowdown allowed Aczel to catch his wind, though, and he seemed invigorated by the sight of his foe’s blood in the seventh. He nearly dropped Mundine with a left-right midway through the round, then drew another referee’s warning for holding the champion’s head with his right hand while clubbing away with the left.

After winning the seventh, Aczel controlled the first two minutes of the eighth with his jab. He left one short, however, leaving himself open to the finishing salvo by Mundine.

The decisive victory caps a brilliant trilogy, even if Mundine – who defended his national heavyweight belt by stopping Aczel on a ninth-round eye cut nearly a year ago, on July 28, 1980 -- won all three fights.

Mundine said he hopes the win will propel him towards a shot at the World Boxing Association or World Boxing Council light-heavyweight belt, or a chance in the cruiserweight division, which is only recognized by the WBC. In 1979, Mundine lost a 12-round decision to Mate Parlov in an eliminator for the WBC cruiserweight belt eventually won by Marvin Camel.

“I’ve proven I’m the best in my own country,” said Mundine, whose lone shot at a world title belt was a seventh-round knockout loss to middleweight legend Carlos Monzon in 1974. “Now I want to prove myself the best in the world.”

Aczel, a native of Hungary who lives in Brisbane, said he might have weakened himself by getting down to 174 pounds to be eligible for all three national belts, but would focus on the heavier classifications in the future.

“I think I’m stronger at cruiser or heavyweight,” said Aczel, who weighed 187 for his third-round knockout of Rod Christsen in May. “But, no doubt, Mundine was stronger tonight.”

Mundine led by a 68-65 count on all three scorecards, though most ringside observers felt the scoring should have been closer -- and that Aczel possessed the more impressive sideburns.
