Anthony Mundine and John Wayne Parr squared off in a ten-round 75 kg catchweight boxing bout on Saturday November 30. The contest headlined the “Worlds Collide” pay-per-view fight card, held at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, South Bank.


The encounter went a full distance. The verdict heard a split decision in favor of Parr.

One judge scored the bout 96-93 for Parr. Another judge had it 95-93, also for JW. The third judge awarded 95-94 to Mundine.

Mundine rocked Parr in Round 3. Parr scored knockdown in round four. Mundine was deducted a point in round eight for hitting behind the head.

JWP, 43, is a former 10 time world champion in kickboxing and Muay Thai, who held WKN super welterweight title, WMC and ISKA middleweight titles, among others. He hasn’t competed in boxing since 2003. Yet, victorious, he updates his record in “The Sweet Science” to 11-3, 10 KO.

The encounter with “The Man” was the final appearance of “The Gunslinger” inside the squared circle. He retires with a combined record of 110 wins with 56 knockouts out of 148 fight in total, plus 1 draw (110-37-1, 56 KO).

The co-headline bout saw Muay Thai fighter turned pro-boxer Ben Mahoney facing off John Ruba for a vacant IBO Asia Pacific super welterweight title. The bout ended ahead of the third round. The doctor stopped the contest due to the left eye cut received by Ruba.

The undercard featured a series of bouts with local and international competitors.
