Mundine McKart Mundine vs. McKart  saul alvarez miguel cotto floyd mayweather jr anthony mundine By Allan Fox: 37-year-old former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine (43-4, 25 KO’s) is stubbornly convinced that he can get a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. before he retires at some point in the future.

Froch vs. Kessler  mikkel kessler carl froch By Scott Gilfoid: The Carl Froch – Mikkel Kessler negotiations aren’t going smoothly for a 2012 fight, confesses Froch’s promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sports. There’s a question whether Hearn will be able to satisfy what Kessler wants financially.
