Anthony Mundine has called for a third bout with Danny Green, declaring he will “destroy” his long-time rival in his hometown of Perth.

Mundine went down to Green by a controversial points decision in Adelaide on February 3, squaring the ledger at one-all 11 years after beating his fierce rival in Sydney.

Mundine’s camp has lodged an appeal with the Australian National Boxing Federation in the hope of getting the result changed to ‘no decision’.

But the 41-year-old former super-middleweight and middleweight world champion is keen to settle the score on hostile territory.

“I want to beat him, whip him and hurt him in his own backyard in his own home in Perth,” told SEN radio.

“All his family can come, all his friends can come and witness him getting fried.

“I want to whip his arse.

“This time I really feel I can hurt him really bad. I want to put an end to his career.”

Green has hosed down talk of a rematch, saying he is happy to retire a winner.

Mundine says he is keen to fight Green with the right referee who will allow the two veterans to go at it on the inside and the outside.

Danny Green
Danny Green insists he wants to retire on top.

“Ninety per cent of the people that know boxing know that I won the fight,” Mundine said. 

“Even his fans were coming up to me after the fight saying I won the fight.

“I’m not talking one or two people, I’m talking everyone that I run into.”

Mundine said he wants to fight Green at 83 kilograms, four heavier than what he weighed during the Adelaide bout.
