On August 14th, Anthony Mundine tweeted, “THE WAIT IS FINALLY OVER! I will be fighting Sugar Shane Mosley at 154p. Lets go! @SugarShaneM Sugar Shane Mosley.” This would be Mundine’s first fight since his UD loss to Daniel Geale in January, which also took place at the Sydney Entertainment Centre.
The former rugby standout has made himself famous with more than just his athleticism, in 2001 he badly hurt his reputation with he comments about 9/11. Stating that, “They call it an act of terrorism, but if you can understand religion, and our way of life, it’s not about terrorism. It’s about fighting for God’s law, and America’s brought it upon themselves.”
It remains to be seen whether either fighter has much at all left to offer in the ring, but one thing you can count on is that Anthony Mundine will do his best to make things interesting, most likely with his mouth.
