Anthony Mundine banks on Jeff Horn fight to salvage lost $1 million against Tommy Browne
ANTHONY Mundine likes to remind anyone who will listen that he holds a boxing record not even Floyd Mayweather or Mike Tyson had, but that will end on Wednesday.
EGO has always been strongly associated with Anthony Mundine, and in his final year of boxing, The Man had to put that aside for perhaps the most important decision of his career.
Mundine has walked away from an extra $1 million by not staging his 55th professional bout on pay-per-view, but for a fighter who has earned more than $40 million in the ring, it’s not the money that will hurt most.
Because for as long as anybody has been listening, Mundine has been reminding them that he is the only fighter in history that has had every single one of his bouts televised on pay-per-view.
Not Floyd Mayweather, Oscar De La Hoya, Manny Pacquiao, Mike Tyson or Muhammad Ali can lay claim to such a statistic, which was only made possible because Mundine already had a significant profile as an NRL star before his switch to boxing, allowing him to charge the public $50 a pop to watch his debut and each fight thereafter.
Mundine, 42, planned to retire with this extraordinary record — one that is unlikely to be matched.
But in a meeting late last year between Mundine and new promoter Matt Rose, it became clear that Main Event did not want to stage a pay-per-view event in January.
Mundine, who is chasing a midyear fight against Jeff Horn and is understood to have agreed to appear in Channel Ten’s I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Here! reality show from next week, couldn’t work with that timing.
And recognising that 2018 will be his final year before retiring from boxing, he swallowed his pride and told Rose to put the fight on Fox Sports.
“He told me he wanted to do that for the people, to let the masses see him fight before he gives it away,” Rose said.
But there is also a tactical edge to the manoeuvre.
The fight against Tommy Browne is expected to lure potentially half a million more viewers than it would have if it was pay-per-view, giving Mundine larger exposure.
He’ll be banking on impressing them, landing his fight against Horn, and having a large portion of the Fox Sports viewers pay to watch that showdown.
Fighters on Main Event earn an agreed figure, and then also take a percentage of pay-per-view sales — Mundine has made millions on these percentages alone.
By forgoing that this time, he opens himself to a new audience who could be convinced to buy a Mundine-Horn fight later this year if it eventuates, landing Mundine more than the $1 million he has given up now.
As for his mooted appearance on I’m A Celebrity, that will land him a significant payday, Mundine said: “I’ve been approached, I’ve thought about it, I haven’t made a decision yet”.
Mundine taunted Horn’s pay-per-view results, with his megafight against Pacquiao last year falling short of Mundine’s record bouts against Danny Green.
“They left no money spare for Pacquiao fight, to try to beat mine and Green’s numbers, they didn’t even get a quarter of that,” Mundine said.
But Browne plans to derail all of Mundine’s plans by defeating him at The Star on Wednesday night.
“I think about the prep I’ve down this fight and there is no doubt there, no question in my mind that I’m ready to win,” Browne said.
Mundine told Browne as they faced off: “I’m ready I’m a different animal to what you’ve come across. Emotions don’t win fights, skills do.”
*The Mundine-Browne fight will be broadcast live on FoxSports 3 from 7pm.

Tommy Browne is fighting with the memory of his brother, but he’s doing it for himself

TOMMY Browne is fighting for himself and for his family on Wednesday night when he takes on Anthony ‘The Man’ Mundine.
The biggest fight of Browne’s career, it’s an opportunity he doesn’t plan on wasting.
Davey’s career and life was cut short and Tommy never saw his brother get the recognition he deserved.
“I believe he definitely didn’t fulfil his career, he deserved a lot more out of the sport than what he was given,” Tommy told foxsports.com.au.
Speaking to Browne, you can sense the importance he holds in getting everything he can out of the sport.
It wasn’t easy for Browne, who took a considerable amount of time to even get back into a gym after his brother’s passing.
In the end it was Davey that pushed Tommy back into the ring — against Joe Rea in June, 2016 — for what he thought would be one, last fight.
“I wanted back to the sport; I wanted to have a fight for my brother,” he said.
“I wanted to, before I retired, I wanted to go in and have my last fight for him and honour his name.
“And I did that. When I went back I did everything I wanted to do, but I still wasn’t satisfied. I still felt that there was little bit more still there for me, and it just dragged me back in there.
“Before I knew it, I was offered another fight six weeks later. It was hard you know there’s something still there as a fighter, once it’s in your blood, it’s hard to go away I guess.”
Brother Davey was once a chance to step in as a late injury replacement to fight Mundine in 2015, but Browne is doing this one for himself.
“A win for me is huge. It’s definitely going to get me more recognition in Australian sport,” he said.
“I’ll always carry my brother with me. It’s an honour, its special. But this fight is about me, for me and for my family.”
“It was very hard, that’s the sport that we did as young kids. It’s been in our family forever,” he said.
“We would train mum and dad growing up; it was very hard to step back in the gym, even just thinking about the sport.
“For something that we shared together, growing up as young kids up into our adult lives, it’s something that doesn’t go away.”
Making the most of what is left of his career is important for the 34-year old, whose younger brother David ‘Davey’ Browne Jr died after sustaining injuries in a 2015 fight on the same card as Tommy.
