Anthony Mundine left stiff by TV star Wood
Unheradled novice middleweight contender Garth Wood (10-1, 6ko) flattened two time world champion Anthony Mundine (40-4, 24ko) in the 5th round in New South Wales.
"If it wasn't for him, I never would have got the knock on the door, I never would have got the chance,'' Wood said. ''I am the best kept secret but you're all aware of it now. It was hard to get hold of Anthony - he was aware of my talent. When I saw the chance for the left hook, I landed it." said Contender TV star Wood.
Meanwhile the normal brash and outspoke Mundine paid his victor tribute: "I got caught but it is about how you bounce back. He is tough and all credit to him,'' he said. ''We've got to go back to the drawing board and go from there. Congratulations to Garth, good luck to him."
