John Wayne Parr (10-3) faces Anthony Mundine (48-9) in a boxing match on November 29. The pair battles it out at the 27,000-capacity Cbus Super Stadium in Robina, Gold Coast, Australia.
Mid last month Parr returned to Japan. Going through the ropes in Nagoya, he faced Danilo Zanolini of Brazil in a three-round kickboxing match. The encounter went the distance and ended in a split decision in favor of the latter.
Anthony Mundine just couldn’t let the first-round loss to Jeff Horn be his last memory of a boxing ring.
The 44-year-old was knocked out by Horn at Suncorp Stadium in November after less than two minutes in what was supposed to be his final professional fight.
Instead Mundine will step back into the ring at Cbus Super Stadium on the Gold Coast on November 30 against John Wayne Parr.
Mundine said his return was all about ensuring the Horn defeat wasn’t the final moment of his career.
“I’m too much of a fierce competitor, everyone knows if anyone beats me in something I want to get them straight back or sit there from dawn till dusk to beat them,” Mundine told AAP.
“I didn’t want to hang them up on that note, you know what I mean?”
