“It’s not personal, he just stands for and represents everything I fight,” Mundine told reporters on Thursday. “Injustice. He’s the recipient of it. He wants to wave the flag. He wants to play the anthem … when he doesn’t understand himself.”
Horn has publicly shared his challenging road to professional boxing, taking up the sport after being bullied throughout his schooling days. In a video for Players Voice this week, Horn reflected on an incident where he was forced on his knees, copping a barrage of slaps from another student.
Horn (18-1-1, 12 KOs) won a welterweight title with a unanimous decision over Manny Pacquiao in 2017. Horn defended the belt once — a TKO11 victory over Gary Corcoran — before losing to Terence Crawford by TKO in Round 9 in June.
Mundine (48-8, 28 KOs), a former rugby league football player, is a former super middleweight world titlist. Mundine defeated Tommy Browne by KO in Round 2 of their fight in January, but has lost three of his past five bouts.
In 2017 Mundine defeated “Sugar” Shane Mosley by TKO in the seventh round at the Allphones Arena in Olympic Park, Sydney.“It’s not personal, he just stands for and represents everything I fight,” Mundine said at Thursday’s Brisbane weigh-in, where both men comfortably came in under the 71kg catchweight for Friday’s fight at Suncorp Stadium.
‘I said, ”I hope you are ready”, because he was talking about, ”you’re going down tomorrow night, you’re going to get a boxing lesson”,’ Horn said. Jeff Horn has revealed the words he whispered into Anthony Mundine’s ear at Thursday’s official ‘River City Rumble’ weigh-in, sparking
Meanwhile, Australian boxing legend Jeff Fenech said 43-year-old Mundine, who goes into the bout a massive underdog, can produce an upset.‘The person who really dominates in the first couple rounds will win the fight. If Anthony stands there and trades with Horn early, I think he’s got a much better chance than moving around and trying to box,’ Fenech told Fox Sports.
