Anthony Mundine has apologised for his incendiary comments regarding Tasmanian Aborigines but stopped short of saying sorry for causing offence to rival boxer Daniel Geale.
Speaking in Redfern in Sydney yesterday, Mundine said his comments weren't intended to cause harm.
At Thursday's media conference to announce a rematch with Geale, the 37-year-old drew widespread condemnation for questioning Tasmanian-born Geale's Aboriginal heritage.
"I thought they wiped all the Aborigines from Tasmania out, that's all I know," Mundine said on Thursday. "I don't see him representing us black people or coloured people. I don't see him out in the community doing what I do with people.
"He's got a white woman, white kids."
