Mundine Refuses To Retire on Loss, Faces Parr on November 30

Anthony Mundine just couldn't let the first-round loss to Jeff Horn be his last memory of a boxing ring.

The 44-year-old was knocked out by Horn at Suncorp Stadium in November after less than two minutes in what was supposed to be his final professional fight.

Instead Mundine will step back into the ring at Cbus Super Stadium on the Gold Coast on November 30 against John Wayne Parr.


Mundine said his return was all about ensuring the Horn defeat wasn't the final moment of his career.

"I'm too much of a fierce competitor, everyone knows if anyone beats me in something I want to get them straight back or sit there from dawn till dusk to beat them," Mundine said.

"I didn't want to hang them up on that note, you know what I mean?"

Parr, 43, has a 10-3 record with all of his wins coming by knockout but last stepped into the boxing ring 16 years ago as his attention switched to kickboxing.

Mundine said Parr would still be a dangerous opponent in November's bout however.

"It's been a while since he's had a boxing fight but he's in the stand-up game," Mundine said.

"Muay Thai and kickboxing, you have to be handy with your hands nonetheless ... it's the art of fighting even if it's not solely boxing.

"He's going to be ready. I know that."

No one, except Mundine, is taking this fight seriously so no one is being conned or being stupid. It will simply be a night of entertainment. But any publicity is good publicity and boxing in AU needs all the publicity…

I am totally fine with Mundine getting punched repeatedly again.

Bumdine is such a backward influence on Australian boxing, which has already been in a bad shape for a while. All he cares about is making money and duping ticket buyers.
