Mundine joins Dunkin’s stable


Australian Anthony Mundine has signed with Las Vegas-based Cameron Dunkin, considered by many to be boxing’s version of the manager to the stars.

A former two-time super middleweight titlewinner who has also fought as a junior middleweight and middleweight, Mundine (43-4, 25 knockouts) joins Dunkin’s impressive list of current and past clients.

Dunkin also manages WBC/WBO titleholder Nonito Donaire, former WBA lightweight beltholder Brandon Rios, WBO junior welterweight strapholder Tim Bradley, unbeaten featherweight contender Mikey Garcia and ex-middleweight beltholder Kelly Pavlik.

Mundine, 36, has won three straight fights since being stopped in the fifth round by Garth Wood in December of 2010, including a 10-round unanimous decision over Wood in their immediate rematch in April of last year.

Mundine dropped Wood in the ninth and 10th rounds of their clash in Queensland to pull out the tight decision.

Dunkin is eying potential fights such as those opposite WBC middleweight beltholder Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.,  WBA junior welterweight titleholder Miguel Cotto or WBC junior middleweight strapholder Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

“He’s been a great champion. He’s 36 years old, but he’s still an outstanding fighter, and there’s great fights out there for him,” said Dunkin.

“He could fight Chavez Jr., he could fight Miguel Cotto, or he could fight Canelo. He can fight any of those guys. He’s really a 154-pounder, but whoever’s a big fight for him, he’s ready to go.”
