Anthony Mundine Faces Charles Hatley on November 11

By Edward Chaykovsky

Anthony Mundine (47-6, 27KOs) has announced that he will defend his WBC silver junior middleweight title against Charles Hatley (25-1-1, 17KOs) in Melbourne on November 11.

Mundine has not fought since upsetting previously unbeaten Sergey Rabchenko last November. Hatley has won eight in a row since getting stunned in the first round by Lanardo Tyner in August of 2012.

Mundine was initially set to face Austin Trout on a May date in Texas. The fight fell apart after Mundine withdrew with an ear infection. The fight was never rescheduled as Mundine was unhappy with the financial terms.

Then there were some discussions of a fight with then WBO champion Demetrius Andrade, but the fight also never came together because the two sides were unable to reach an understanding on the terms.

Hatley is ranked at number 15 by the World Boxing Association.

Nice match up, Mundine should school this kid no problem, then on to bigger and better things. Shame he has been out of the ring a year but as we saw last year against Rabchencko, Mundine is the goods even…

Nice. Hatley was once regarded one of the best US talents, he had a rivalry with Thurman and Andrade in the amateurs, they fought numerous times. His chin is extremely dodgy, but if it holds up he wins this fight.
