Default Mundine vs. Golovkin?

I'm afraid Mundine will get knocked out by the former amateur phenom.

WBA Calls Purse Bids

The WBA has called two purse bids for next Thursday (April 29) at noon at the Wynn Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The first is a clash between WBA #1 middleweight Anthony Mundine and WBA #2 Gennady Golovkin for the 160lb title (Felix Sturm has been elevated to super champion). Minimum bid is $200,000 with a 50/50 purse split. The second match is a defense by WBA flyweight champion Daiki Kameda against Takefumi Sakata. Minimum bid is $80,000 with a 75/25 purse split favoring the champion. The bidding will be overssen by Gilberto Jesus Mendoza and Jose Oliver Gomez.

good on mundine IF it comes off.

Unfortunately, mundines career path of taking easy fights is going to bite him on the ass.

Golovkin - TKO.

If Mundine pulls out of the bidding process to try for 154lb title that will be the last straw.

C'mon Aussie ESB member's lets make a bid...do we get pay per view revenue here?....we'll offer money back to anyone who pays for the fight if Mundine doesn't get beat. "Come and watch the Man get his right whack". The rednecks will be lining up to put it on and have a bbq we could have any number of promotions we'll make a squillion.

The only problem I have with that fight is once again Mundine will end up fighting for a paper title. He's never won a legitimate world title.

Boggles the mind that Mundine is the WBA #1 MW considering:
  • he moved down to MW to avoid a rematch vs Kessler, thereby denying the WBA of sanctioning fees for a title fight;
  • he's fought only 3 times within the MW limit;
  • one of those fights was against a shot career WW/JMW and went the distance;
  • the second of those fights was deemed so close a rematch was ordered and Mundine chose to vacate the belt rather than fulfil that obligation;
  • the third of those fights was supposed to be at JMW against a career WW and went the distance.

Mate, the minimum bid is $200k and the purse split is 50/50%.

We'll be hearing all about how Golovkin priced himself out, or how Mundine won't fight in Germany because he was robbed against Ottke or how Mundine is the cash cow, no way does Golovkin deserve 50%, etc. ad nauseum
