World news – Mundine loved or hated him and looked very sporty


Some love « The Man » and others loathe him, but it cannot be said that Mundine did not trust his abilities.

He quit the rugby league to embark on a boxing career that spanned a phenomenal 21 years. During this time he won the WBA super middleweight title, the IBO middleweight title and the WBA super welterweight title twice.

His bouts with compatriot Danny Green were the most watched bouts in pay-per-view history in this country, and Mundine helped fans get back to boxing by pronouncing them with trash. This enabled him to become the highest paid fighter in Australian boxing history.

He retires with a record that includes 59 fights for 48 wins and 28 by knockout.

Whether you love him or hate Mundine, you can’t tap the skill he had in the ring.

If you are a Tiger fan you still dare to dream of a three-podium after a comfortable win in the opening round.

If you are following the Bulldogs or Demons, you should also be happy with your teams that get initial wins.

If you’ve been following last year’s wooden spoonbills, the Adelaide Crows, this week should be your singing as your team shocked last year’s big finalist, the Geelong Cats.

The young Swans outfit wasn’t meant to bother the Lions at the gabba, but they had other ideas with a great win in Round 1.

In the remaining two games, the Saints have outpaced the Giants, and the Eagles crossed the sun’s top late in their battle.

The second round starts tonight. Let’s see if last week’s winners can keep their shape.

1. Shane Van Gisbergen showed his full class at Sandown by coming from 13th on the grid to take race 1 victory with a sensational drive. He would win both of the other races too. Van Gisbergen drives a great way and it’s hard to see who can beat him.

2. Dustin Martin is the best player in the AFL game and has again proven his great skills by leading the Tigers to victory. He would have got the three brownlow points and I suggest more will come during the season.

3. The Ipswich Softball Association had a great final day with great action. Anyone associated with the club can give themselves a big pat on the back.

1. The Brisbane Lions had great odds of defeating the Swans, but they had other ideas by beating them comfortably in the gabba.

2. The Geelong Cats should start the season off with a bang, but it was more of a whimper when they were defeated by last year’s wooden spoonbills, the Adelaide Crows.

3. The NSW cricket team expelled from Tasmania for a nefarious 32 runs. Some players need to take a close look at themselves.

4. The weather gods who threw many sports into chaos last weekend. Please stay away for a while so we can see some dry sporting action and see the Golden Slipper running this weekend.

1. The Panthers were the best team in 2020 with the exception of the big final day. They started another shutout in the same way in 2021. Can someone get a try against them?

2. Parramatta Eels fans were thrilled last Thursday when they finally beat their bogey team, the Melbourne Storm. If you keep this defense up, you will win many games.

3. Brett Morris showed the younger players that age won’t tire him with another hat-trick of attempts to start the season. Six tries in two games is incredible.

1. The cowboys were expected to be in charge of the dragons, but they performed another dismal performance. The work also got tougher when Jason Taumalolo was now out for an extended period.

2. The Broncos continued their defeat by performing poorly against the Titans. You have had success in 13 consecutive games.

3. Melbourne forward Felise Kaufusi was due to receive a lottery ticket after being banned from that elbow to Ryan Matterson for just two weeks.

1. 1976: Wladamir Klitschko – Ukrainian boxer who twice held the world heavyweight title. He also won gold at the 1996 Olympics.

2. 1982: Danica Patrick – American driver who became the first woman to win an Indy Car Series race.

2. 1982: Wayne Gretsky becomes the first NHL player to score 200 points in one season.
