Anthony Mundine stopped Tommy Browne on Wednesday in Australia, dropping the former featherweight and ending things at 2:59 of the second round, picking up the vacant WBO Oriental middleweight title with the victory.

The victory also means that Mundine, 42, is now looking forward. He recently said he wanted three more fights, and two big names are his real targets.

One is Jeff Horn, whose trainer Glenn Rushton is saying that Terence Crawford is their priority, not a money fight in Australia with the aging veteran Mundine. And the other is Danny Green, whom Mundine fought and beat in 2006, before losing a long-overdue rematch in 2017.

“I just want to uplift boxing here and I think after that fight, [Horn] can go onto do what wants to do,” Mundine told AAP. ”If Green don’t want me to fight him again, I may retire.”

Mundine is now 48-8 (28 KO), while Browne slips to 35-7-2 (13 KO) in defeat.
