Joshua Clottey bea'ts Mundine unanimously to become new champion...

Ghana's Joshua Clottey is the new WBA international lightmiddleweight champion of the world.

He beat Australia's Anthony Mundine on Wednesday night (local time). The judges called it 116-108, 115-109, 117-108 in the Ghanaian's favour.

Mundine's future is in the balance after losing in a twelve-round points decision to Clottey on Wednesday night for the WBA international light middleweight title.

Mundine was desperate to gain the international recognition he needs and gets him closer to his dream of facing Floyd Mayweather, however the unanimous points decision loss has closed the chance of that happening.
