Sergey Rabchenko heading to Australia for Anthony Mundine bout

Neil Devey looks at another Hatton move in Australia

Ricky Hatton is set to extend his links with Australian boxing by taking his unbeaten European light-middleweight champion Sergey Rabchenko to Melbourne to take on Anthony Mundine.

It is understood a fight between the 28-year-old Belarussian (25-0) and former WBA super-middleweight champion Mundine (46-6) will be announced this Wednesday (Aug 27). The fight is set to take place at Melbourne’s Hisense Arena.

The bout was first touted on boxingnewsonline on July 15 http://www.boxingnewsonline.net/ricky-hatton-in-australia-hoping-to-tie-up-deals-for-his-britain-based-fighters/

Mundine, 39, hasn’t fought since being knocked down five times by Joshua Clottey in a one-sided points decision in May.

Hatton already promotes three Aussie fighters – Lucas Browne, Cameron Hammond and Damien Hooper.

Meanwhile, three-time Mundine victim Sam Soliman will defend his IBF middleweight belt against Jermain Taylor on October 8 at a US venue to be confirmed.
