Mundine: I Want To Stop Horn in Six, Quicker Than Crawford Did

Former world champion Anthony Mundine, 43-year-old, is expecting to catapult himself to a huge fight - should he defeat fellow former champion Jeff Horn in a big domestic showdown.

It was recently reported that Mundine split from his longtime manager, Khoder Nasser after more than 20 years of working together.

It appears that Nasser had advised Mundine to walk away from boxing.

Mundine is attempting to finalize a deal to fight Horn in November - something Nasser wanted him to avoid.

“Khoder wanted me to retire,” Mundine said to The Daily Telegraph.

“I wanted someone who still believed in me. This fight will catapult me back onto the world stage. I’ll get a fight in America if I beat Jeff. I don’t want to just beat him, I want to make a statement.

Last month, Horn traveled over to Las Vegas and was stopped in nine round by Terence Crawford at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mundine not only wants to defeat Horn - he wants to make a real statement by overtaking Horn in quicker fashion than Crawford did. 

The dream for Mundine, is still to fight in the United States with a huge name.. He believes the contest with Horn, with a dominating win, will build that bridge to a United States showcase.

“I want to stop him in the first six rounds, quicker than Terrence Crawford did. You’ve got no idea how good I’m feeling at the moment. I'm pumped bra,” Mundine said.

“It’s good that Horn is going to get a pay day. He’s a young man with a young family. For me it’s not about the money. I already own nearly 10 properties and I’ve made my millions.

“This is about me winning and fighting in America. I don’t care where I fight him, as long as there’s a square ring.”

I really can't see the point of this fight it will have to be at 154, Mundine will kill himself making weight and get iced. We all know how skilful Horn is. Mundine in his prime was awesome why he…

[QUOTE=rudy;18908714]Mundine has been involved in some terrible matches did he not fight Barry Michael who was 60 in of his fights and use to be IBF Superfeatherweight champion. This should not be sanctioned Mundine is 43 not 33[/QUOTE] Lester Ellis.
