Boxing: Mundine eyes Mayweather after
Former Australian rugby league star turned boxer Anthony
Mundine is eyeing a bout with Floyd Mayweather as the
ultimate prize after beating superstar "Sugar" Shane
Mundine emerged the winner at Sydney's Allphones Arena
on Wednesday evening against the veteran American
fighter when Mosley retired after the sixth round with
severe back spasms.
It was the biggest scalp of Mundine's career, earning
him the vacant WBA International super welterweight
title on a technical knockout, and the peerless
Mayweather, with an unbeaten 45-0 record, is now in his
While the win should improve his chances of a crack at
Mayweather, Mundine said he was prepared to face the
likes of former champions and Mayweather victims, Miguel
Cotto and Saul Alvarez, on his way to the lucrative
fight he is after.
"I just want the best, I don't care," Mundine, 38, told
Australian Associated Press.
"Obviously I want Floyd, he's the best of the best. But
that's not going to happen next.
"You've got to do your time and beat the right fighters.
There's Cotto out there, there's Alvarez. They are the
type of calibre of fighters I want to fight."
Mayweather beat Mexico's Alvarez in September to claim
the unified super welterweight championship in Las Veges
in what was the richest fight in boxing history with
nearly US$150 million in pay-per-view revenues.
An honest Mosley, who has won five world titles in three
weight classes and announced his retirement after losing
to Alverez last year only to change his mind, admitted
Mundine was ahead when he decided to call it quits.
Mundine paid tribute to his opponent as one of the
"My heart goes out to Shane, I know he's a winner," said
the Australian of the 42-year-old, whose future is now
"He's not one to pull out for nothing. He's one of the
greatest fighters to have ever lived."

OLD STORY ABOUT AN AUSSIE FIGHTER
THAT SHOULD BE REMEMBERED
Griffo, boxing’s forgotten genius:
in Australia and buried in the Bronx
05.12.05 - By MIKE CASEY: The story
goes that when Young Griffo was in
the premature autumn of his
incredible life and ever more
dependent on his famous love of
alcohol, he would keep himself in
drinks by spreading a handkerchief
on the floor of his local saloon,
placing a foot on one corner, and
challenging any man in the bar to
punch him off it....
