Boxing Federation plays down doctor quitting during Green-Mundine bout

Dr Lou Lewis said he was angry the fight continued after Green was concussed by a controversial blow from Mundine in the first round.

Dr Lewis said he quit because his opinion was overruled by the other doctor in the ring, John O'Neill, and referee Frank Garza.

"Dr John O'Neill was the official fight doctor appointed by the promoter," a spokesman for the Australian National Boxing Federation, which sanctioned the bout, said.
