Mundine, Anthony

Anthony “The Man” Mundine (born 21 May 1975) is a boxer and former Australian rugby league player. He is the son of boxer Tony Mundine, a middleweight contender during the 1970s who is also his trainer.

Mundine has had a stormy relationship with the popular media. His conversion to Islam in 1999, self-promotion and outspoken opinions have created a love-hate relationship with the Australian public. He was named the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Person of the Year in 2000.

He is featured on rapper Joel Turner’s single “Knock U Out” which peaked in the top 20 of the Australian ARIAnet singles chart in 2005.
