Clottey invades Australia; exchanges heated words with Mundine

Former world champion Joshua Clottey and his team arrived in Australia yesterday for his upcoming April 9th elimination bout against former two time WBA world champion Anthony “the man” Mundine (46-5, 27 KOs). Mundine has been talking a lot of smack about IBF World champion Joshua Clottey (37-4, 22 KOs) and their twelve round title defense of Mundine’s WBA International title. It looks like no love is lost either side.

Clottey’s promoter Joe DeGuardia: “It looks like Mundine and BOXA Promotions are looking past Joshua onto bigger things but I can tell everybody here. Joshua has not stopped training for 6 months since this fight was first mentioned” and is very confident of victory.”

BOXA promotions agent Brendan Bourke: “We never overlook any opponent but it’s true we think Anthony is on another level.”

Joshua Clottey: “Mundine is in for a rude shock when I retire him April 9 in Australia, he has no idea who he’s fighting.”

Anthony Mundine: “I want Cotto, Alvarez, then Mayweather. Joshua is a good fighter but he’s not on my level. I can’t lose.”

All said and done this is a very interesting high profile cross roads eliminator for both fighters. For the winner, the # 1 spot in the WBA rankings is the prize with a title shot at 154lbs looking highly possible later this year.

The fight is live on Australian Main Event PPV TV and at selected Foxtel pubs and clubs. Tickets available at Ticketek or at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre.
