An unsuspecting arena

An unsuspecting arena Image

More than 3000 fans packed into the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) in Southbank on November 11 to see a rare boxing match involving Australian boxer Anthony Mundine.

MCEC’s Plenary hosted the WBC Silver Super Welterweight World Title fight between Mundine and American Charles Hatley, in what was only the second event of its kind held at the venue.

Fans were treated to an entertaining fight between the pair, with Hatley eventually going on to claim a technical knockout (TKO) win, after Mundine’s camp threw in the towel during the 11th round.

Plenary first hosted a boxing event in 2013, and the sport’s comeback to the versatile venue proved an overwhelming success.

A range of local and international boxers featured in the other eight undercards matches as part of the event, which was attended by a total of 3182 fans.
