Mundine Still Focused on Landing Mayweather Clash

By Phil D. Jay

Two-weight world champion Anthony Mundine is looking to sweep aside veteran Bronco McKart on his American debut next month, before launching an audacious two-year bid to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The 37 year-old, who has four defeats in 47 contests, is ready to work his way up to the task of ending Mayweathers perfect 43-0 record and says there is no-one out there with his capabilities to defeat the pound for pound king.

"Im the only one that can beat Floyd," Mundine told foxsports.com.au.

"You need speed. Hes never fought someone as fast as me or someone with as good skill as me."

Eyebrows were raised when Mundine announced McKart as his opponent for the summer after turning down a shot at WBA light-middleweight champion Austin Trout, although The Man is confident that he picked the right starting point for his US fight career.

"Its the foot in the door, the chance for the American public to know Anthony Mundine," he said. Im going to let my talents to the work in the ring.

"Ive got a five-fight plan (to face Mayweather), whether it takes two years or two-and-a-half or three years. But it could happen earlier, Im bringing something different.

I want to let them know who I am. Im the wonder from down under, I truly believe it.

"Ive got the whole package. And Im controversial, they like that."

Opponent McKart, 41, has fought 64 times in a vast career, in which the Michigan fighter lost a trilogy of fights to the recently-retired Ronald Winky Wright, along with a further defeat to former undisputed champion Kelly Pavlik.

The southpaw has racked up three wins on the spin though and will need another to keep himself in with a slim chance of fighting for a world title for a fifth time after previously winning one of his four attempts.

Another shameless duck by mayweather. Mundine has the drawing power... so there is no excuses Floyd. He can almost sell out a chubby checkers fighting a no name. So Floyd should have no excuses....

If McKart has anything let at all, Mundine won't beat him

Year after year Mundine is the biggest joke in boxing. Embarrassing for Australian fight fans like me. No-one in Australia pays the slightest attention to him.
