Anthony Mundine blows out Gunnar Jackson, targets quick return in April

Mark Metcalfe

Anthony Mundine faced no challenge from short-notice opponent Gunnar Jackson today in Australia, and says he'll return to the ring this spring.

Anthony Mundine will continue to be laughed off as a potential Floyd Mayweather challenger, but he's winning his fights at the same time. This morning, he cruised past Gunnar Jackson in an other easy fight, winning on shutout scores of 100-90 across the board.

Jackson (18-5-3, 6 KO) was a short-notice replacement for American Carson Jones, who was a mediocre opponent for Mundine (46-5, 27 KO) in the first place, but certainly superior to what we wound up getting. Mundine, 38, is hoping to return to the ring in early April after this easy win.

No doubt Mundine will hype a major fight as he always does, but it's rare he delivers on those boasts. His biggest fights have all been domestic showdowns with Danny Green and Daniel Geale. Just a couple months ago in November, he did (for now) officially retire Shane Mosley with a solid performance in Sydney, Mosley pulling out with an injured back after six rounds. Mundine was clearly winning the fight.

Also on the card today in Boondall, rugby star Quade Cooper improved to 2-0 (2 KO) in his celebrity boxing career.
