Mundine gave up his title for this???

The Boxingtalk Scoreboard

Anthony Mundine W10 Crazy Kim... Anthony Mundine has defeated Toshiharu Kaneyama a/k/a Crazy Kim by unanimous decision in Newcastle, Australia. Mundine suffered a third-round knockdown but won every other round. Official scores were 99-91, 98-91 and 98-92 in favor of Mundine (33-3). The bout was contested at 164 pounds, just a few weeks after Mundine vacated the WBA 168-pound title for no apparent reason except fear of an eventual showdown with then-mandatory contender Mikkel Kessler. source: afp

Daisuke Naito TKO10 Tomonobu Shimizu... Daisuke Naito of Japan retained the WBC 112-pound title Wednesday with a technical knockout of Tomonobu Shimizu. At the time of the stoppage, all three judges had the lightly regarded Shimizu ahead on the cards (87-84, 87-85 and 86-85). Shimizu, who really did nothing to earn this, his second world title shot, sees his record falls to a meager 13-3. Naito, now 33-2-3, once again demonstrated his heart with this come-from-behind win. His legend has steadily grown in Japan since he was knocked out in 34 seconds by Pongsaklek Wongjongkam in 2002 but came back five years later to wrest the WBC flyweight title away from Wongjongkam. source: yahoo! sports / ticker
