Controversial Australian boxer Anthony Mundine is clear about the way in which he wants his career to processed. The 38 year-old will first target a showdown with a past his prime Shane Mosley before trying to entice pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr into the ring.
Mundine has reportedly revealed that he has offered the 41 year old Mosley $1 5 million to delay his retirement before seeking out a lucrative clash with Mayweather Jr.
"I’m looking to fight Shane Mosley and if I lose that ... I’ll call it a day," Mundine told News Ltd.
"I’m at that point now where it’s kill or be killed, there is nothing else.
"And that means this next fight, it will be the biggest of my career. I still want the best; still want to knock ’em all over until I reach Floyd Mayweather ... but for that to happen I can’t afford to lose."
Regarding negotiations with team Mosley, Mundine added: "All I can say now is that it’s close, really close,” Mundine said of the negotiations.
"The ball, it’s in his court. I’ve agreed to a deal and am ready to go ... I’m just waiting now for Shane to sign it."
