Anthony Mundine: Danny Green don’t want it, so Jeff Horn can get it!

Anthony Mundine is eyeing up a move down in weight to face Jeff Horn as the former world champion prepares to battle Tommy Browne on Wednesday.

The 42 year-old, who challenges for the WBO Oriental middleweight belt this week, has been linked to an appearance on ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!’ later this month.

Mundine would need to come though Browne before even thinking about a clash with Horn, but could persuade arch-rival Danny Green to agree a trilogy fight as they are rumored to have both agreed to star on the Channel 10 show.

“I would like to have three fights this year that would probably be it, but if I keep winning and they keep offering me these big money fights, I’ll have to sit down and think ‘is it enough’?’ Mundine told Fox Sports on Tuesday.

“I’m too big, too strong, too fast, too everything,” he said.

On the potential to swap punches with Horn, who operates 13 pounds lighter at welterweight, Mundine added: “I give him props for what he’s done, he hasn’t got the best talent but he’s got hard work ethic and he made his dream a reality through sheer hard work.

“He’s got a bit of a punch too. Good on him, but if he comes up against me it’s the wrong move.

“Obviously it makes sense, because national fights, especially two Australians known throughout the boxing world makes for a massive fight.

“Danny Green don’t want it, so if he want it, he can get it.

“But I’m not focused on him, I’m focused on leaving by fighting the best and solidify my greatness in the sport.”

A win for Mundine pushes him closer to a possible shot at full WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders, although it seems ‘The Man’ is more interested in a domestic collision – rather than trading blows with the talented Briton anytime soon.
