Former world title challenger Robert Medley is confident of defeating Anthony Mundine next Monday at the Entertainment Center in Sydney, NSW, Australia. Medley’s trainer Graham Shaw said, “Rob has looked great in the gym in sensational sparring sessions against WBO rated 168 pounder Peter Kariuki and also his world middleweight contender Daniel Geale. He is physically and mentally 100% ready to defeat Mundine. We have the advantage of having Daniel Geale as a sparring partner. Medley and Geale have sparred each other on a regular basis for over three years. Geale defeated Mundine last May but did not get the decision. The Mundine vs Medley is now being contested at the middleweight poundage (160) instead of the originally agreed weight of 154 pounds. I knew Mundine would have trouble making that weight — he struggles to make middleweight. Next Monday, Mundine is in for one of his toughest fights against Medley who is totally focused.” Televised nationally on Foxtel Main Event Pay-Per View. Promoter: Tony Mundine Sr.
