Mundine Cuts The Trash Talk as Mosley Bout Nears

By Brad Walter

For 20 years Anthony Mundine's critics have unsuccessfully tried to shut him up, but ''The Man'' has done it himself in the preparation for Wednesday night's bout against Shane Mosley at the Sydney Entertainment Centre.

Gone is the trash-talking of rivals, the outspoken comments designed to get under people's skin and force them to take notice and the confident spruiking of his own talents.

The reasons are three-fold; Mundine doesn't have to talk up the fight due to Mosley's standing in the sport, his respect for the seven-time world champion, and mainly because the 38-year-old knows he needs to be totally focused on winning.

''He is probably the best credentialled fighter I have ever fought and I want to show him the respect that he deserves,'' Mundine said.

''I am an experienced guy, a confident guy, a cocky guy, a brash guy, but I know what I am here for. I come focused and ready and I want to show that against one of the best. I feel that I am cut from the same cloth [as Mosley].

"I have just got to prove it. He has been there and done it for so many years, he is one of the best to do it and you can't get under his skin.''

Shane should win only if he can pull the trigger, I've seen some Mundine fights he can box and shouldn't be underestimated.

Two old fogies going at it is not cool.In sex or boxing.

Mosley is old, but I have no idea who Mundine is. My bet is that the fans lose.

I think Shane may get hurt this fight-he is facing a much bigger guy who has fought at SMW...Shane and Mundine are both past prime, but Mundine has a lot more left in the tank....did I mention this is in…
