Former champion Anthony Mundine of Australia is taking his "Floyd Mayweather Jr." campaign a step further. The controversial fighter has now aligned himself with rapper Game, a known rival of Mayweather's best friend, 50 Cent. Mundine hopes the new alliance will bait Mayweather, the WBA's 154-pound champion, to fight him.
Mundine makes his American debut on July 14th against veteran Bronco McKart at The Palms Casino in Las Vegas. McKart is a far cry from Mayweather and other possibilities that Mundine could have taken.
Mundine also took shot at Mayweather's looming jail stint for a domestic abuse charge, which begins on June 1 in Las Vegas.
"Mayweather's got 50, I'm working on getting Game in my corner, and saying 'Come on'," Mundine told the The Daily Telegraph. "I'm comin' for him. That's the way to go. He's just got to worry about not dropping the soap, because otherwise he might end up as someone's you-know-what. He'll be keeping on top of things while he's in there, shadow boxing, sit-ups, push-ups, because he knows everyone wants a piece of him.But I'm bringing a different angle, I'm the wonder from Down Under. I'm the original Aboriginal."
