Default Mundine's Entourage Bullying the Judges...

from http://www.watoday.com.au/sport/ento...t3.html?page=2

As always, Anthony Mundine claimed he was confident all along that he would win.

But his overflowing entourage clearly was not, judging by the intimidating tactics used during the absorbing fight with IBO world middleweight champion Daniel Geale at Brisbane last night.

Mundine claimed he wanted to "conquer the world" and would consider only big name - and even bigger money - overseas bouts after a split points decision over a gracious Geale.

But experienced onlookers doubted whether "The Man" would be able to fight overseas without being disqualified if his supporters repeated Wednesday night's antics outside of Australia.

As one respected ringside observer said after Mundine claimed his third world title: "They are not going to be able to get away with that overseas".

Some of the larger members of Mundine's 15-strong entourage took their place either side of one judge - Englishman Marcus McConnell - during the fight.

If that wasn't enough, they shamelessly looked at the score cards as McConnell handed them to officials at the end of each round - and abused him if they didn't agree.

Another person could clearly be heard swearing at McConnell from Mundine's corner after receiving score updates from his offsiders, even hinting at a conspiracy when a round didn't go to "The Man".

"They've got a plan, it's all part of their plan," he said.

Blind panic set in at Mundine's corner as scores came through near the end of the 12 round fight - and then it really got ugly.

One member of Mundine's entourage stood over McConnell and hurled abuse at the judge when he saw that he awarded Geale the 10th round, calling him "racist".

He had obviously forgotten that Geale was also an indigenous boxer - mind you, the Aboriginal flag embroidered into his boxing trunks sort of gave it away.

"Tell Choc (Mundine) to get busy, they (judges) are going to rob him," the Team Mundine member said after looking at the scorecard.
One newspaper journalist sitting next to a clearly unimpressed McConnell had had enough by this stage

"You can't talk to a judge like that," the reporter said.

Enraged, the "Team Mundine" member then let rip at the bemused reporter.

The same Mundine "supporter" was seen in the dressing rooms afterwards saying he later apologised to McConnell "because we won, but if we hadn't ..."

By this stage, Mundine had morphed into "The Man" as he sat on a huge black chair in the dressing room corner like a throne.

"This guy was fighting when I was lacing up boots (in rugby league)," Mundine said.

"He had a prestigious amateur background, 160 fights, Commonwealth Games gold medallist - I took it up in 2000 with four fights in my kit.

"Now c'mon, who is the best? Don't be naive. Just tell people the truth."

It was in stark contrast to the scenes in Geale's camp.

Geale was philosophical about his first professional loss.

The Sydney-based Tasmanian recovered well from a second round knockdown - just the fifth of his 22-fight career - to give Mundine, and his entourage, a real scare.

"That flash knockdown worried me. It may have swayed things a little bit," Geale said.

"But you've got to sit back and let the judges do their job."

If only Mundine's entourage had.

and the fallout from the fight continues...

Surely something has to be done to prevent this sort of thing from happening again.
Can you imagine the uproar if there was a person trying to influence the 3rd umpire or video ref in a cricket match or a game of footy?

How is it that 'members of an entourage' are able to get so close to judging officials? Should there not be some form of physical barrier to prevent this?
The judges had a difficult enough time trying to score this fight without somebody standing over their shoulder and abusing them.

I am not doubting the integrity of any of the judges here, but it just looks bad for the sport. The result was controversial enough.

Edit: Seems this story might be a bit of a media beat-up.

Did they have any effect then, if he was still giving rounds to Geale in front of them?

I wouldn't hold your breath. I don't think Anthony is going to want to get into the ring with one of the top 3 MWs in the world after that. He might be delusional but he isn't blind.
