Yeah, I always couldnt stand him either for his public persona, similar to @Alan79 however, a guy I work with now used to work at one the venues where his fights have been held as a young fella.By all reports, Mundine snr is well respected and a really top bloke.. he just acted like a clown to sell fights and it worked because hes made a very tidy profit out of being a bog average boxer..
He was involved in setting up the ring/tables/chairs/curtains etc, he said that Choc used to come in and say hello to the young guys and was super humble and down to earth.
He came back around 12 months later and remembered his name and asked how he was doing.
Its hard to say when you havent personally met the guy but its also hard to dispute many people's personal interactions with him being positive.
It does make sense when you think the public persona and saying so much dumb shit is a huge PR thing to make money, it has obviously worked.
