BOXING: One of the three judges in the Anthony Mundine-Danny Green fight has admitted he erred in his scoring of the bout.

Hubert Minn awarded Green the fight 98-90 and copped plenty of criticism for his decision. The other two judges scored it 94-94 and 96-94 in Green's favour, reflecting the close nature of the fight.

Mundine described Minn's judging as "incompetence at its best"

while Green said there was "no chance" he won by that much

Minnsaid he still believed Green was a deserving winner, but admitted he probably made a mistake by not scoring the rounds more evenly.

"I'm disappointed in myself. I was surprised with my own scorecard. Maybe I should have scored the last two rounds closer," Minn told Triple M's Seb Costello.

"My phone's blowing up. I'm getting texts from people I don't even know asking if I was paid off.

"But I own my decision and I still believe Danny won the fight."

Minn is a veteran on the sport, having judged more than 50 world title fights.

Last year he told the Manila Standard he wanted greater "consistency in scoring" and said "integrity" was key for every judge.
