Anthony Mundine has promised to give Jeff Horn a vicious beating when they collide in a battler of former world champions.
The highly anticipated Australian grudge match is being targeted for a date in November, possibly in Brisbane.
Horn (18-1) is returning from suffering the first defeat of his pro career, when he was stopped by Terence Crawford back in June in their WBO welterweight world title fight.
Mundine snapped a two fight losing streak back in January, when he stopped Tommy Browne in two rounds.
That contest took place at the middleweight limit.
The contest with Horn is falling in around the junior middleweight division.
Mundine is promising to do everything possible to batter Horn in the ring.
“This boy is going to get hurt, you better have the paramedics there, you better have the ambulance at ringside because I’m telling you, it might end early,” Mundine told 7News Brisbane.
“I’m going to hit him with that many lefts, he’ll be begging for a right."
Mundine (56-8), at the age of 43, believes he's got enough left in the tank to make a serious statement.
“I’m feeling the best I’ve ever felt,” Mundine assured.
“George Foreman came back and won the title at 45. I’m happy that I’m going to make him a millionaire.”
Horn is hoping to draw a massive crowd - similar if not better to the audience that watched his stunning upset of Manny Pacquiao in July 2017 at the Suncorp Stadium.
A crowd of 51,000 came out to watch Horn pull off a twelve round unanimous decision over Pacquiao to capture the WBO welterweight crown. The win made Horn an instant superstar in Australia - and also sparked off the rivalry with Mundine, who felt Horn was receiving too much praise from the local media.
“To replicate what we did at Suncorp stadium against many Pacquiao, that would be brilliant,” Horn explained.
