HE HAS GIVEN THE BOXING GAME MOUTH TO MOUTH FOR 13 YEARS.
You can say a lot of things about Anthony Mundine – showman, braggart, supreme athlete, good role model, bad role model, talented boxer, former NRL star, motormouth, controversial, Aboriginal icon etc etc – but no one sells like ‘The Man’.
No-one creates headlines and column inches like he does. No-one has injected life into Australian boxing like he has.
He will get people to the fight, and to buy the pay-per-view. They may not like him, they may not want to see him win (but many do), but they will tune in.
Because the man loves to give a show. Win, lose or draw that’s the one thing, in the sometimes murky and madcap world of boxing, that’s guaranteed.
