Mikkel Kessler retained his WBA super middleweeight title by unanimous decision over Anthony Mundine in a bout held in the challenger's home country, Australia. According to the Associated Press, Kessler won by scores of 120-108, 116-112 and 117-113 but the 120-108 scorecard turned in by judge Henk Meyers was immediately criticzed by the WBA supervisor, Renzo Bagnariol. Mundine, rated #6 by Boxingtalk, suffered a bloody nose in the
fourth round. Kessler is now 36-0 and is rated #2 in the world by
Boxingtalk, behind only WBO champion Joe Calzaghe and ahead of IBF champion Jeff Lacy, who are both undefeated like Kessler.
