Jeff Horn Confident: I Should Beat Anthony Mundine Easily!

Jeff Horn (18-1-1, 12 KOs) is very confident of notching a victory in a potential showdown with Australian rival Anthony Mundine.

The battle of former world champions is being pegged for November 23 or November 30 at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia - the same venue that saw 51,000 pack the house in July 2017 when Horn shocked the boxing world by pulling off an upset decision over Manny Pacquiao.

Horn is coming off the first defeat of his pro career, when he lost his WBO welterweight title by way of a TKO loss at the hands of Terence Crawford in June in Las Vegas.

The two sides agreed to a catch-weight of 156.5-pounds - rather than the initial weight of 154-pounds.

“Mundine probably likes money more than food because he seems to be good at making money. So we hope the deal can be done soon,’’ Horn said to the Courier Mail.

“The negotiations for the fight have taken a long time and it’s been frustrating but I should beat Mundine easily. He’s been around for a long time, he’s very skilful and he’s got that slick boxing style that could give me problems. But I am very confident.’’

At the moment, according to Horn's handlers, they are waiting for Mundine's side to agree to the weight penalties involved with the fight.

Mundine was won world titles at super middleweight and fought as high as light heavyweight when he faced Danny Green in a 2017 rematch.

Horn is being very cautious to avoid the scenario of Mundine being way too heavy once he rehydrates on the day of the fight.

“If Mundine comes in 10kg [22-pounds] heavier than me he will have at least an extra 15-20 percent extra muscle and we don’t want that to be a massive advantage. He is a very experienced boxer and he has been a multiple world champ,’’ Horn said.
