Jeff Horn popular ‘because he is a white boy’, says Anthony Mundine

January 17, 2018

FORMER world champion Anthony Mundine has slammed fellow Australian boxer Jeff Horn, saying the Queenslander only gets attention because of his skin colour.

Mundine was hoping to fight Horn this year before the 29-year-old elected to head to the United States for his next bout.

"He's only the flavour of the month because he is a white boy, just like Danny Green was the white boy," Mundine told News Corp Australia.

"You've just got to look at society -- whites get privileges.

"I don't care if you're white, black, brown, whatever, it's your heart that makes you.

"But in the western society, whites get privileges, and because Horn is white, he gets all that attention and media coverage."

Mundine also called for Australia Day to be moved from January 26, and later posted on Facebook to vigorously deny he ever slammed Horn's heritage, as was claimed on the front page of The Daily Telegraph.

"I see the papers are at it again trying to word things like I'm a racist to white people," Mundine wrote.

"I AINT SLAM NOBODIES (sic) HERITAGE ??!

"First thing I couldn't care what colour you are... I got white blood in me also but I will never stand down from speaking the truth & fighting injustice!!!

"I said there are white privileges... you tell me does the western society & system give white privilege or black privilege??"

Horn, who has agreed terms to defend his WBO welterweight title against Terence Crawford instead of taking up a $2 million fight with Mundine, paid little attention to his comments.

"It's just same old Mundine being Mundine; I think we all know what he's doing," Horn said.

"I don't know why he has to belittle my achievements and bring race into it."

THE END

I do.  Because he's a piece of shit.

Anthony was a very good fighter .... very good not great.

Nothing he did matches beating Pacquioa even if Pacquioa was past his best.

The reality is he's 42 and lost 3 of his last 4 fights.

His dad was a very good fighter as well, a very good fighter who fought way to long.

Anthony needs to give it away before he gets hurt and try to find something else to make himself relevant.

I hope Jeff Horn is getting way over 2 million for the Crawford fight because I don't think many judges would give him much chance in that fight.

Horn’s big fight tomorrow.

If he can take it through to the 6/7th rounds he may well be in with a chance despite everyone saying he has zero hope.

Thanks I saw the 12.30 wasn’t sure if that’s the undercard or main event.

I think I’ll take your word for it and turn up at the local at that time.

I shouldn’t have bothered none my locals had the fight ended up watching on my phone 😂

Brave effort by Horm he’s tough but outclassed.

I think he’ll go ok if he steps up a division and fights the normal boxers not outright champs.

Totally outclassed and I think they knew it going in. 


Like picking Sugar Ray Robinson for your first title defence.


Perhaps not too smart

It was his second defence.

I think he's being managed in a very practical way - maximise his earnings as quickly as possible - and good luck to him for it.

He had a defence against a lessor opponent, needed to fight the designated challenger and now will probably get a decent payday from a high profile fight then Mundine and maybe a Manny rematch.

I reckon Jeff knows what he wants to achieve for his family ...... I'd be surprised if he had another six fights.

Haha

Good point.

I’m actually looking forward  to McGregor getting back in the cage that one should be interesting.
