Anthony Mundine Targets The Winner of Trout-Lopez

By Phil D. Jay

Anthony “The Man” Mundine (41-4, 24 KO’s) is seeking to regain his number one contender spot with the WBA after avenging his surprise December knockout defeat to Australian Contender winner Garth Wood (10-2-1) with a unanimous points win in Queensland last month.

The 35 year-old held the mandatory challenger spot last year and was on the verge of challenging Rigoberto Alvarez for the WBA light-middleweight title until the wheels came off his plans with the shock loss to Wood. Alvarez went on to face Austin Trout for the vacant title and American Trout came out the new champion.

Trout, 25, makes the first defence of his WBA title on June 11th against David Lopez and Mundine’s manager Khoder Nassar will be asking the WBA to consider putting his fighter forward to face the winner. Mundine has campaign at middleweight recently also and the Gennady Golovkin v Kassim Ouma WBA 160lb title fight a week later in Panama may also be considered.

Mundine will never fight Golovkin... Is only wish is to be a paper champ again! I wonder why anybody still care about him? He's the kind of calling out everybody and then fight bums.
