Mundine won a twelve-round unanimous decision by the following scores: Judge Michael Lee 116-113, Judge Pinij Prayadsub 118-111, Judge Derek Milham 118-112.
After a limited amateur career (he had 4 amateur fights when he was 17), his first professional fight was against New Zealander Gerrard Zohs.Mundine was disappointed that further representative honours did not follow, and believed that his representative opportunities did not reflect his abilities and achievements at club level.He raised the issue of racism as the main explanation for this.He later cited what he claimed was racism concerning rugby league as one of the reasons he quit to take up boxing.
Mundine would later make implications during a promotion for a boxing match that former chairman of selectors and respected Aboriginal figure Arthur Beetson may have been an "Uncle Tom" who went along with the alleged racism.
Soliman and Mundine would meet for a second time, this time competing for the vacant WBA super middleweight championship of the world.
