Rabchenko-Mundine Clash Set For 11/12 in Melbourne

By Luke Furman

Former champion Anthony Mundine (46-6), who in April got beat up by Joshua Clottey, is going to resume his career. He plans to face Sergey Rabchenko at Hisense Arena on November 12 in Melbourne. Rabchenko, 28-years-old, is 11 years younger and won all of his 25 professional fights, 18 by KO, as well as 217 of 238 ­amateur bouts. Rabchenko is trained by Ricky Hatton, who is well known in Australia for ending the career of country great Kostya Tszyu in 2005. The fight will be officially announced this week.

Good to see Mundine fighting on, but at 39 years of age and a former WBA Super Middleweight champion he continues to fight at Super Welterweight???? Surely it would have been wise to go back up to Middleweight or Super…
