At LMW, Kirkland in any round he so pleases.

Choc is done, only the idiotic nuthuggers would give him any more than a snowball's chance in hell at this stage in his career.

Kirkland. More power. More skill. His last two victories are better than any Mundine has on his record.

im not so sure i think kirkland can get outbox for periods of time. I think mundine would actually win on the cards with kirkland coming on stronger later on in the fight but to little to late. mundine looked alot stronger in his lasts 2 fights then he had since geale.

I think Kirkland's issues are there for all to see, but I think Mundine would fight frightened against him. Those that have upset Kirkland's apple cart are the willing.

A few years ago Mundine would of had too much for him, but Kirkland wins now.

Kirkland is strong at junior middle while mundine struggles at the weight.
Mundine is still fast, but has slowed down enough to get caught and does more regularly.
Kirkland has a name in America and is seen as a genuine junior middle prospect over there while Mundine is not.

I would love to see Mundine win, but I thimk this run in the U.S should of come at least 4/5 years ago.

By the way if Khoder isn't looking after Mundine then who is?

4-5 years ago mundine was still making very good money in australia and to him probably wasnt worth the risk going to america. if he got beat would not of made a killing like he has over the last 5 years. he tried against the best at smw (kessler) and got beaten.

As a name...but yeah my opinion is that Mundine cannot beat the truly world class guys. He beat an up and coming Geale sure but I'm guessing we'll get to see if he can do it again.

Mundine would get smashed. Coming from someone who thinks Kirkland is very over rated. Mundine is well and truly finished. I give him respect for trying against some of the best at super middle (Ottke + Kessler) but he lost his self belief and everything he's done at the lower weight divisions has been pointless. He lost to Garth Woods ffs.
