Mundine's plan

Aap
Friday, April 04, 2014

SYDNEY - Anthony Mundine plans to play the role of matador to Joshua Clottey's bull next week and insists his boxing career could last for two more years.

Mundine, recently elevated to No.2 in the WBA rankings, will make his first defence of that organisation's International super welterweight title against 14th rated Clottey in Newcastle next Wednesday.

Clottey, 36, (37-4, 22 KOs) briefly held the IBF welterweight title in 2008-09 and all four of his losses were to other world champions.

Mundine came face to face with the New York-based Ghanian in Sydney on Wednesday.

"This guy is a beast, I want to tame the beast and be my own beast in order to get the victory," Mundine said.

"It's probably one of the toughest fights of my career.

"I want to be strong, I have to be strong because this guy is a bull and I want to be the matador.

"This guy is deceptively quick, he's got all the tools," Mundine said.
