REGARDLESS of age, weight-class and purpose, if the names are big enough, it will sell.

That’s the golden rule of boxing, it has been for years, and in the case of a potential November fight between Jeff Horn and Anthony Mundine, it would appear to ring true once again.

Horn, in fairness, was a WBO world welterweight champion only a few months ago, and last July he beat Manny Pacquiao in front of 50,000 of his countrymen in Brisbane. He’s 30 years of age, presumably still ambitious, and has lost only one of 20 pro fights (to the wonderful Terence Crawford, no less). That’s not the issue.
