Mundine: I'm Super Confident I'll Beat Jeff Horn, I Can Stop Him

Anthony Mundine (48-8, 28 KOs), 43-years-old, is aiming to blast out Australian rival Jeff Horn (18-1-1, 12 KOs), 26-years-old, on November 30 at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

Mundine, who captured world titles in multiple weight classes - as high as super middleweight - may finally retire in the aftermath of this upcoming contest.

“I’m super confident that I can beat Jeff Horn and I believe that I can even stop him inside the distance. What better way to leave boxing than to beat the guy who beat Manny Pacquiao before 50,000 people in a huge football stadium?," Mundine told Courier Mail.


Mundine places no stock in a sparring session which took place with Horn a few years ago.

Horn believes he got the better of the veteran in the closed doors exchange of punches.

“Horn landed some good shots and so did I. But what Jeff doesn’t tell people was that I had already done eight hard rounds of sparring in the Brisbane summer heat and humidity before he got in the ring. It was about even between us but if I had been fresh I know it would have been a much different story," Mundine said.

Mundine is very proud of his career. He earned more money than most of the big name Aussie fighters who came before him, and headlined several events that generated record revenue figures in the country - like his two fight series with Danny Green.

“I’ve had a great career, shocked a lot of people and won world titles when no one thought it was possible. I earned $30 million from the sport and with no amateur background became a world champion and beat a lot of big name fighters along the way. I want to beat Horn so I can leave the sport on a huge high," Mundine said.

Favour Horn here but would love Mundine to do it. Horn's too jumped up for me.

I'd guess Mundine will far outweigh Honk on the night. So he could just bull his man into submission if that's the case. Hope Anthony gets a solid W for his last fight in the sport.

The one opponent that cant be stopped is father time. Mundine is to old to compete and should retire into coaching or punditry
