Horn: Mundine Has Similar Style To Crawford, He's Dangerous

Jeff Horn says it's the element of unknown that will interest punters most about his fight with Anthony Mundine next Friday.

It's not an opinion shared by his trainer Glenn Rushton though, who a week out from the Suncorp Stadium bout has already seen it play out in his head.

"I'm predicting a KO win ... I actually had a dream he'd knock him out in round seven and I'm visualising the headline on the next morning saying 'Mundown'," Rushton said on Friday.

"Joshua (Clottey) got him down five times (in a 2014 loss), how good would it be if we could get him down six times.

"But it's a dangerous fight, we have to be careful if we get too carried away and get him too early it could be to our detriment."

Mundine has typically pulled no punches ahead of what is said to be the former rugby league star and boxing world champion's farewell from the ring.

But former teacher Horn was full of complements following a promotional sparring session in downtown Brisbane on Friday.

"Definitely (he can knock me out); I think he's in good shape from what I've seen of him," Horn said.

"He wants to go out on the big bang, I'm expecting the best Anthony Mundine out there.

"It's a real unknown with this fight, with Mundine and his boxing skills."

Horn lost his welterweight title belt in what was his first professional defeat to Terence Crawford in June.

"Hopefully I can learn from my mistakes," Horn said.

"Mundine has that similar style and he's saying he's coming to upset me with that."

Horn admitted to some nostalgia as he skipped around a makeshift gym at the top of Queen Street, having done the same before his memorable upset of Manny Pacquiao last year.

He hopes those good vibes continue against an opponent he thinks may be underestimating him.

"I think that last fight (against Crawford) he saw me in, he saw a lot of chinks in my armour, which there was," Horn said.

"This time it's going to be a lot different.

"His greatest weakness will be if I clip him nice and clean in the head he'll be wobbled and I'll be able to get him down."

Mundine might not have a similar style to Crawford, but he has a way better resume than Crawford that's for sure.
