I've never followed the career of Australia's third rate mini Ali closely. Probably because boxing is on pay-for-view these days so it never crosses my radar.Big smile In the alphabet soup of boxing world champions, what was The Man's highest overall position in his weight division? Overall, including every boxer in the world in the weight division.

Same Tlaz & I don't know the answers. All I know is the bloke is never going to be seen as a good boxer with a big mouth. World Champion - I don't think so. Maybe in a Mickey Mouse Association. There are at least 4 World Boxing Associations these days. Often hear people saying he has been good for the sport - I don't think he has. This fight coming up is a joke. Means nothing. Horn beat a tired old World Champion in a controversial result. Got shown up last fight - absolutely outclassed. This is his get out payday & he can then go back to teaching

A good athlete. can't take that away from him .

    The Crawford who beat Horn last time is called the best pound for pound in the world .    Horn too big to lose so much weight last time . Outclassed all the same .
   They say a sell out this week ... Mundine can sure pull a crowd .

   Should be all Horn ...      lol my tiping isn't good but if I had whale in there it would improve ...   At 85 I'd beat him .

Yes maxie, a very talented athlete and fighter who didn't get into the ring as a professional till he was 25 and had only 4 amateur fights, and only after he was finished with another successful sporting career in rugby league playing at State Of Origin level. Won 3 versions of world titles and beat world champions some bigger than him. I reckon his best ever fight was a points loss to then 35-0 genuine world champion Michael Kassler.

All that's very true PT. So is the fact he went on national TV & supported the 9/11 attacks. I'm amazed this fight is being supported (as I'm told it is). Old man vs young bloke who's career is already on the slide.

Not sure what that contested stuff from 17 years ago has to do with his ability or his chances this week.

I wouldn't write him off. He is coming off a ko win this year against a tough fighter who has since won 3 and Horne is coming off a mauling. Often a bad loss like that takes time to mentally recover from if ever. Ask Mundine's father. Many think he never recovered from Monzon.

Whenever I heard the word world champion where boxing is concerned I reach for the sick bucket. Who is the best boxer Mundine has beaten?

4 of Mosely's previous 6 fights were 12 round decisions against some of the games other legends, Pacquiao, Mayweather, Alvarez, Cotti. and was for a time considered the best pound for pound fighter in the world.

That argument about whether or not he was still at the top or slightly past it can be applied to any sportsman, animal or team. The fact is Mundine was in the ring with high class fighters and never disgraced himself.

Happy Clapper is rubbish by your definition, but I would love to own him.

He is 53 years old and has had 1 fight in the last 4 years.

That would be a farce, worse than Danny Green v Roy Jones Jr

"The great Sugar Ray Leonard, right now, if he was boxing, the way that they want you to fight, the people that pull the strings of the puppet, he would be boring today. Ray Robinson – the great Robinson – would be boring today…Because the feeders of the people that buy entertainment. They're being fed that if they duck, don't buy it. If they're slick, and they beat [their opponent] nine out of the 12 rounds, and the guy just can't hit him because they were slick and smart enough to hit and not get hit, 'He's not crowd-pleasing, he don't sell tickets.' Because they done fed the followers and they done fed [that] to the customers. The customers will drink anything that you give them if it's promoted right…But when you take away the skill and you take away the slick, and you take away the boxing ability and say that's not entertaining, or that's not entertainment, then, to me, it's like trying to erase a culture that you know has dominated the sport way back then where you were slick. And I'm talking about black fighters. Yes, I said it", said Hopkins.
