Melbourne bikie boss Toby Mitchell has been ordered to undergo anger management and alcohol counselling, after punching a man at a South Yarra cafe last October.

The president of the Mongols Melbourne chapter pleaded guilty to assaulting the man by punching him three times to the ground at Gilson South Yarra on October 4 2020.

But Mitchell's sentencing has been delayed until September and it's still not clear whether he'll be jailed or merely fined over the incident.

A representative of Corrections Victoria told Melbourne Magistrates Court on Monday that the 45-year-old bikie needed to undergo an "extended compliance assessment" and asked for a one-month delay.

But the court has put off the sentencing until September, and told Mitchell to undertake alcohol and anger management courses.

In a previous hearing Mitchell's lawyer Damian Sheales accused police of grandstanding, telling the court the bikie boss didn't even strike his victim enough for him to drop the drink he was holding.

Mitchell remains on bail.
