Anthony Mundine of Australia defeated Mexican fighter Rigoberto Alvarez in an unanimous points decision to claim the WBA interim world light middleweight title Wednesday. Mundine (43-4, 25 KOs) rarely looked troubled by Alvarez (27-4, 20 KOs) throughout the 12 rounds, winning the bout 114-113, 117-111, 117-111 on the judges' scorecards. After some early flurries from Alvarez, Mundine took control of the fight, dictating the pace and keeping his opponent under pressure. Mundine used his powerful right to attack a wound above Alvarez's left eye, which opened up during a barrage of blows in the fourth round. The 36-year-old Mundine is a prospect for a world title fight against undefeated Austin Trout of the United States.
