Aussie boxer wants to take on former great in Sydney.
Former world champion Anthony Mundine is still chasing a big name for his hit list, and next in line for the former NRL star is American Shane Mosley.
The Daily Telegraph reports Mudine has reunited with his former manager Khoder Nasser and together they have targeted former three-time world champion for a bout in Australia.
Despite having held titles in the IBF, WBC and WBA and possessing a record of 48-8-1, Mosely has not won a fight in more than four years.
The fighter nicknamed Sugar, officially retired in June 2012, but looks set for a comeback around May against solid Mexican Pablo Cesar Cano in Cancun.
Mundine, with the help of Nasser, is looking to put his hand up to be an opponent for the 41-year-old American in one of his “tune-up fights” he will have to undergo if he is to be considered a pay-per-view draw card again in the United States.
Such a bout could put Mundine’s name on the map globally which has long been a goal for the 37-year-old, with the fight possibly being a valuable jump-start to his career after being soundly beaten by Daniel Geale for the IBF Middleweight title.
Mundine has previously tried to crack the American market, including calling out pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr., but his tactics did not work.
“I didn’t get the fighter I wanted. If I’d got (Shane) Moseley or (Miguel) Cotto, that’s a different story. I wanted an opportunity for fans to see me fight. I want to fight again in June, here or overseas,” Mundine told The Daily Telegraph after his loss to Geale.
