The fight of the year in Australia has yet again been postponed. It has been announced that the Anthony Mundine vs Danny Green fight, said to be the biggest non-title fight in Australian boxing history, has been moved to May. The fight will now be held at Aussie Stadium in Sydney on May 17 (Australia time).

Doctors told Green that he needed two weeks rest after sustaining nerve damage to his back during training last week. Mundine, who was not thrilled with the second postponement of the blockbuster fight, reacted to the news by saying, “Is he a warrior or a wuss?”

The Super Middleweight Middleweight bout features “The Man” Mundine is 25-3 (20 KO’s) and is arguably the more polished boxer of the two. He takes on “Green Machine” Green, who is 21-2 (19 KO’s). Green is as game as they come and, although he does not possess the pure athleticism of Mundine, his slugging prowess is undeniable.

Before betting was suspended, Mundine was a slight favourite.
