MUNDINE’S MUM IN HIS CORNER
ANTHONY Mundine has flown his mum and a dietitian to Brisbane to ensure he makes the weight for his November 30 fight with Jeff Horn.
Mundine has to strip more than 4kg in three weeks to get to the 71kg fight agreement. He faces financial penalties of $50,000 for every 100g he’s over. “I’m just eating fish and chicken salads that mum’s been preparing,” Mundine said. “We have to be scientific about this too, so we’ve called in a dietitian to ensure I don’t lose my strength along with the weight. It’s hard work but this is my last fight and I’m determined to go out a winner.”
