“Mundine our greatest athlete” says Johnny Lewis

Anthony Mundine is Australia’s greatest athlete according to ex-boxing trainer Johnny Lewis.

Speaking to Julian King ahead of Mundine’s fight against Jeff Horn this Friday, Lewis described the cross-code athlete as Australia’s greatest athlete.

“H’es had a good career in football and boxing. There’s no doubt Mundine is our greatest athlete. It’s a shame he didn’t pick up a golf stick he might’ve had Tiger Woods ducking for cover.”

While Lewis praised Mundine, he predicted a win for Horn.

“Horn’s too young and he’ll win convincingly but you never know with Mundine. It’s too big of an ask of his body to do enough to win this fight”

“If you’re a little overconfident Anthony can you make you pay for it, but Jeff’s young legs will be the decider of the contest”.

There’s no reason why Jeff can’t pressure him from the outset, get him going backwards which will make the legs heavier can have him very tired before the halfway mark”.
