The River City Rumble was a match that saw the still rising Jeff Horn take down the now retired Anthony Mundine in a round 1 knock out in front of 30,000 odd people in Suncorp Stadium.

Macquarie Sports Radios boxing caller and 2GB Mornings host Ray Hadley joins Mieke Buchan and Billy McGee to share his thoughts on the fight and the end of a career for one of Australia’s most controversial sportsman.

Coming out with pure aggression Hadley says Horn, “caught Mundine a little bit by surprise with just the level of aggression so early in the fight.”

43 year old Mundine was, “very dignified in accepting the defeat… he was met last night by a very much better fighter… who just demoralized him.”

Having a retiring record of 48 wins to 9 losses Mieke and Billy ask Ray for his opinion on where Mundine will stand in the ranks of Australian boxing royalty;

“Any indication of his greatness would come from boxing, and that’s tainted by what he’s said… He might make the top 20 of all time Australian boxers but he wouldn’t be in my top 5”
