Mundine-Clottey Pushed Back One Week, To April 9

Anthony Mundine's fight against former IBF welterweight world champion Joshua Clottey has been delayed. Mundine was set to clash with Clottey at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on April 2 but the bout has been pushed back a week to allow more time for Australian clearances to be processed for the New York-based Ghanaian.

Mundine, the No.4 ranked contender for Floyd Mayweather's WBA super welterweight title, will now fight Clottey on April 9.

Clottey (37-4, 22 KOs) beat Zab Judah in August 2008 to win the vacant IBF title, but vacated it the following April without making a defence.

His other big win was a victory over Diego Corrales, while his four losses were all to world champions Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito and Carlos Baldomir and he has never been stopped.

Mundine has fought in Newcastle twice before, winning unanimous decisions over Mexican Rigoberto Alvarez in 2011 and Japan's Crazy Kim in 2008.

Hmmm...I'm far from convinced that Mundine is gonna work his way into a title shot by fighting a string of way past sell-by ex champs, but then he's hardly a spring chicken himself. I guess he's making a decent living…

Clottey squandered some great years, hoping he still has the fire.
