HISTORY WILL BE
There is no greater rivalry in Australian sport than that between Danny Green and Anthony Mundine. On February 3, 2017, “The Man” and “The Machine” will settle the score once and for all at the Adelaide Oval in what is certain to be the most anticipated sporting events of the year.
More than 34,500 fans packed into the Sydney Football Stadium on May 17 2006, to see Mundine claim a unanimous decision over Green in their first bout.
Now after ten long years, “The Green Machine” has an opportunity to avenge that defeat and affirm his legacy as one of Australia’s all time greatest fighters.
For Mundine, the bout presents an opportunity to prove once and for all he is “the Man”. Since that night in 2006, Mundine has gone up and down in weight with mixed fortune. A win over Green will not only silence his critics but also ensure he remains Australia’s undisputed king of the ring.
This is much more than a marquee-sporting event. It is personal in every sense and supersedes all other sporting rivalries. This battle will be remembered for generations to come and this is your opportunity to be ringside with us all of the way.
