Aussie What next for Horn? Mundine?

#1
It will be interesting to see which way Jeff Horn heads next.

There shouldn't be any shortage of opportunities out there for him, and one of them is Mundine at catchweight.

Who do people think Horn will fight next?

Horn has a number of options. He can remain at welterweight. Go up to super welterweight. Or fight Mundine at catchweight, and then decide later.

I don't see any point him moving up a division. Most fighters battle to make weight and Horn is no exception.

Fighting Mundine represents only a pay day for Horn - granted a big pay day. It is otherwise a no win fight for him. He beats a 43 year old, so what. He loses to a 43 year old and where does he go from there?

If Dean Lonergan, Glenn Rushton and Jeff Horn himself are as astute as I think they are they will wait until the dust settles on this loss and make a smart decision in the cold light of day.

Horn-Mundine already seems to be gaining momentum. It is being reported Mundine’s adviser Emaid Dib has spoken to Horn’s trainer Glenn Rushton twice already about the potential match-up.

“I told Glenn that this is Jeff’s opportunity to make a career high payday fighting in his own backyard’’ - Dib said.

“Anthony Mundine can write Jeff a cheque now for the fight and he can promote it himself but we are prepared to work with Dean Lonergan if that’s what the Horn camp wants."

“I told him that we have very definite plans. Anthony is 43 so we want the fight to happen as soon as possible."

Horn - Mundine is a no brainer. Jeff gets to fight in his own backyard for a career high payday. If he wins it is a stepping stone to get back on track, if he loses
he can retire a wealthy man. Mundine has already offered Horn 2 million win lose or draw. The stumbling block is Lonergan who is talking a Crawford re-match
or other elite welters back in the USA. Spence,Thurman,Porter, even Garcia all destroy Horn. There are still enough Mundine Haters out there to make this fight
a certain money spinner.
My Tip .... Mundine TKO on cuts.

Anthony Mundine is going to end up messed up. His father and those closest to him should have been pressuring him to to retire years ago.

We saw from the poor turn up of Mundine supporters for the Green fight that the bubble has burst for him and that was a year and a half ago.

Mundine has already offered Horn 2 Million win lose or draw. Thats 1 mill more than he got against Pac. 27 thousand turned up at Mundine -Green 2 in a neutral state.
Are you saying Horn-Mundine is not a money spinner ???
Anyway the thread title is what next for Horn..... What's your tip ??

Did you hear the crowd reaction in Adelaide for Mundine compared to for Green? It sounded like there weren't any Mundine supporters there.

In any case Mundine is 43 and should be retired while people can still understand what he is trying to say.

I'll try again... Are you saying Horn-Mundine is not a money spinner ???
What should Horn do next ??
The thread is not about Mundine-Green.

You are desperately trying to put words in my mouth.

Here is what I said. Nothing more. Nothing less :

Mundine is an option: an in between keep busy fight- a certain win- nice pay day.

I still hate it :rofl everyone cringes at the idea but will still watch it anyway.

Horn still has stock in world rankings and definitely can beat multiple second tier welterweights. ie- Shawn Porter, Kell Brook, Jessie vargas, Lamont Peterson, Lucas Matthysse, I hope he plays the business end of his career smart. 19-1. Only 30 years old. There's millions to be made and Duco are smart players.

I disagree that Duco are smart players, if the Queensland government hadn't got involved and if Duco didn't sign Horn's rights away to the slimey yank then Horn would still be angling for a shot. Duco get Joseph Parker and Jeff Horn world title shots, albeit WBO, then have both their first serious title defences as the underdogs in their opponents' home towns, with both the title defenders earning a lot less than the challengers, absolutely brilliant management there, and neither of the title shots in the first place could have happened without the help of the NZ or Queensland governments.

Anthony Mundine on the prospect of fighting Jeff Horn :

"I mean....I'm not desperate for the fight."

"He went over there and fought one of the best pound for pounders in the world...did himself proud...his country proud....his family proud"

"I've got nothing but the utmost respect for Jeff...have met him a few times...just seems a very genuine, humble dude that nobody could dislike."

"It would be hard to get up for this fight....you know....would be like hitting a brother."

"If he did beat me...I'd definately bow out...you know."

"If I did beat him...I'd just want to go out and fight the best....at 154, 160."

"I've got a few more fights in me....good fights."

Mundine will be flying to Brisbane next week to meet with Horn's team. Horn trainer Glenn Rushton says the fight has the potential to top the 2006 Green-Mundine fight as Australia's biggest PPV at more than $10m.

Rushton says he hopes a win over Mundine will help springboard Horn to return fights with Manny Pacquiao and Bud Crawford.

"We know Crawford is agreeable to fighting Jeff again as long as the money is there."

Mundine has promised to turn over a new leaf.

"I said a lot of things in the past that were probably stupid and dumb" - Anthony Mundine.
