Mundine Warns Horn: The Crawford Nightmare Will Continue!

Anthony Mundine has confirmed his November 30 fight with former world boxing champion Jeff Horn in Brisbane will be his last.

The 43-year-old (48-8-0 record) will draw the curtain on his 18-year boxing career with the 71kg catchweight bout expected to draw 30,000 Suncorp Stadium fans.

Former three-time world champion Mundine believed he had one more box to tick before bowing out from boxing - exposing Horn as "hype".

Horn (18-1-1) hopes the fight is a stepping stone toward a re-match against the man who took away his WBO welterweight world title - American Terence Crawford - in June.

The former local school teacher will be the Brisbane crowd favourite when he returns to the venue where he sensationally claimed the WBO belt from boxing great Manny Pacquiao in July 2017.

"He's good and works hard and credit to him but a lot of it is just hype," Mundine said of the 30 year old Horn.

"I want to expose that hype. Before I came into it, the sport was dead. They were fighting at RSLs.

"I paved the way for guys like Jeff. For me this is my opportunity to prove I was the best of the last generation and I am best of the next generation."

Mundine said Horn was well-beaten by Crawford in his June title defence and predicted more of the same on November 30.

"He beat Pacquiao so I take my hat off to him but he got outclassed by Crawford pretty bad," Mundine said.

"Someone with a lot of skill adjusted to his style very well. I can guarantee you on November 30 the Crawford nightmare will continue. As far as skill, talent and ability, he ain't on my level."

Mundine said he had nothing left to prove in a boxing career that controversially began in 2000 when he walked away from a lucrative St George Illawarra NRL contract.

"I have done it all," he said.

"I am a three-time world champion. I played NRL, played State of Origin.

"I didn't get picked for my country which is probably why I left, threw my dummies out the cot and left for boxing where I was on my own boss."

Horn should be fighting better guys than Mundine. 147 is stacked.

I still have a bad taste in my mouth when Mundine beat down on Mosley.
