Daniel Geale's manager lodges official protest against judge
By Bernie Pramberg
June 02, 2009Pre-fight protests against
Queensland judge Derek Milham at last
week's Anthony Mundine-Daniel Geale IBO
super-middleweight clash fell on deaf
Geale's manager Bill Treacy, who will
this week lodge an official protest to
the International Boxing Organisation on
a number of issues, has revealed he had
complained about Milham's appointment
before the bout.
"I complained, but the promoters
insisted he stay," said Treacy. "In the
past Derek Milham has been involved with
Mundine and the World Boxing Association
in certain boxing matters. I was told
that the IBO and WBA would sort out our
concerns about having him as a judge
last week. But nothing happened."
Milham, who resigned as an Australian
National Boxing Federation official two
years ago but continued to work for the
WBA, scored the fight 116-113 to
Mundine. It is alleged Milham has
assisted the Mundine camp to negotiate
past bouts within the WBA organisation.
English judge Marcus McDonnell went
114-113 for Mundine while American
Richard Green favoured Geale 115-112.
Treacy's written complaint to the IBO
will also include alleged verbal
intimidation of McDonnell during the
fight by a pro-Mundine spectator and why
referee Garry Dean had to interrupt the
fight on five occasions when tapes on
Mundine's gloves came loose.
"It's okay for the judge to say he
wasn't intimidated, but it leads to a
state of mind when someone is screaming
over your shoulder," said Treacy. "It
should not be allowed.
"We will also examine the videotape to
see if a wet towel was applied to
Mundine's gloves so the tape would not

Mundine casts Taylor aside
11, 2009 - 11:59PM
Anthony Mundine won a unanimous points
decision over veteran Shannan Taylor in
their WBA middleweight fight in
Wollongong on Wednesday night.
In Mundine's first bout at the lower
weight, the two-time former super
middleweight world champion showed he
had lost none of his speed, winning
every round to likely send 36-year-old
Taylor into retirement.
In a scrappy encounter that never
reached any great heights, Mundine
landed far more punches and dictated
terms without inflicting too much damage
on the Bulli Blaster.
Taylor was lucky not to be disqualified
after using elbows, head clashes and low
blows to try to pull off an unlikely
victory and he was clearly outboxed.
Already the No.1-ranked WBA middleweight
contender, Mundine is perfectly placed
for a world title fight against Felix
Sturm in his native Germany later this
year, although a re-match with Perth's

Darchinyan Stops Arce
Rounds to Retain Super Flyweight Belts
Dioses on 02.08.2009
Armenia's Vic Darchinyan proves to much
for Jorge Arce, stopping him before the
final round to keep a firm hold of his
WBC, WBA and IBF titles
Photos by Tom Casino
ANAHEIM, CA - This time, media members
and this time, they were right.
The "Raging Bull" successfully defended
his WBA, WBC and IBF titles with a TKO
stoppage over challenger
rounds in front of a raucous crowd of
5,450 at the Honda Center in Anaheim,
Darchinyan wasn't as the stalker he was
in his last fight, which also ended in a
stoppage by knockout over
Mijares, but Darchinyan
slowly got into an offensive rhythm to
which Arce, (51-5, 39KO's) could not
Darchniyan's momentum began in the
second round, as he began to land his
left hand with force, with Arce
returning fire, yet not as effectively
as the reigning super flyweight
Arce landed his first major punch midway
through the third round as the two
proceeded to exchange in attempts to
gain the momentum factor. Arce also had
a productive fourth round, in which he
landed a solid left hook to begin the
round, and was able to land three to
four punches in succession.
In the sixth, seventh and eighth rounds,
Arce succumbed to the constant left
hands from Darchinyan. Arce waiting to
find openings in Darchinyan's offense,
and there proved to be little.
Darchinyan was able to apply more
offense in these rounds, and won them
simply due to more punching output with
an advantage in punching power.
In the tenth, Arce was able to land an
occasional right hand, but failed to
either follow up on his punches or
seriously hurt Darchinyan, who walked
through Arce's punches with ease.
Darchinyan was able to land solid,
effective punches in the 30th minutes of
the fight, which left the right side of
Arce's face swelled.
The eleventh and decisive round was all
Darchinyan, as Arce fell prey to big
shots that left Arce's already swelling
eye in a worse condition. He was
battered against the ropes several
times, and nearly stopped before the
bell rang, ending the round.
