The fine is the athlete’s second offense in just weeks.

He claimed he was not wearing a mask because he had an exemption and told… Nine news he couldn’t check in with the Bunnings because he left his phone in his car.

Mundine bought something in the store while he was there.

Earlier this month, the boxer and former rugby league footballer was fined again after allegedly flying from Sydney to Ballina for no good reason.

He previously made headlines during the Covid-19 pandemic for his controversial views on vaccines.

In May, he ridiculedly said Australians shouldn’t roll up their sleeves for the coronavirus vaccine because “it’s blatant genocide.”

The outspoken retired sportsman urged everyone to “do some research” in a bizarre social media diatribe that was not supported by scientific or medical evidence.

“If you take the injection, you will have serious health problems, even death!” the anti-vaxxer told his 89,500 Facebook followers.

“Their evil plans are to depopulate the world to 1 billion people, we are now at 7-8 billion … this is blatant genocide of humanity with a virus that has a recovery rate of 99.7%!”

The recently retired boxer then claimed that the vaccine “crippled the immune system” and that he would let his system do the work for him.

‘Don’t take it! Do your research!’ the message ended.
