Mundine Admits "I'm Afraid" as Clottey Showdown Nears
By Edward Chaykovsky
Australian star Anthony Mundine (46-5, 27KOs), 38-years-old, is feeling the pressure with the upcoming fight against Joshua Clottey (37-4, 22KOs). The fight between former champions takes place on April 9th at the Entertainment Centre in Newcastle, New South Wales. Clottey's defeats all came to world champions - Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito and Carlos Baldomir.
“Yes, I’m afraid,” Mundine said to News Unlimited. “I fear failure. The fight is everything. My career is on the line. I could come back from a loss when I was younger but I’m now at an age where one loss and it’s all over. All top athletes have doubt at different times and I think it’s going to make me perform better. You’ve seen me in my last two fights.”
“He’s a very dangerous fighter. If I fight anything below a nine out of 10 it will be hard to beat him. He’s experienced, he’s beaten the best, he’s a cagey fighter, he’s got great defence and he’s never been stopped.
“Plus he’s got power in both hands. His tapes are very impressive and he’s the sort of boxer I’ve got to beat to get to America.”
I think that's both hands at the same time. Come to think of it, that's one of the punches Pacquiao used on him - the Double Simultaneous Clobber. Neither fist made it through the Clottey shell though.Comment by lutenco on 03-24-2014
