Former WBC middleweight champion Jeff Horn and former WBA super-middleweight champion Anthony Mundine will clash in a boxing blockbuster River City Rumble at Suncorp Stadium on Friday 30th November 2018.
Tickets go onsale through Ticketek www.ticketek.com.au next Wednesday 10th October.
Horn said today he was delighted the fight against Mundine had been confirmed.
“I can’t wait to get back to a packed Suncorp Stadium and face Mundine. The atmosphere was unbelievable when I beat Manny Pacquiao last year and it’s great knowing I’m going to experience that feeling all over again.
“I’m very grateful to the Queensland Government for supporting me once again and I want to repay that faith by beating Mundine. I need to have a convincing win if I want to get back in the mix to win back my world title and that’s exactly what I intend to do. The loss to Terence Crawford in Las Vegas still hurts so I’m very keen to put that behind me with a big win over Mundine.
“This fight is just a stepping stone - the ultimate goal is to meet Crawford at Suncorp Stadium and next time I’m aiming for a different result,” he said.
Dean Lonergan, co-founder and CEO of D&L Events, said he was excited to bring the event to Brisbane.
“Once again the Queensland Government, through Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ) have shown that they are the best in the business in Australia when it comes to events.
“After the success of the Battle of Brisbane, it is now all set to happen again with another blockbuster fight when Jeff Horn meets Anthony Mundine at Suncorp Stadium on November 30. This is a great example of what can be achieved when a promoter, a supportive Government and a great organisation like TEQ come together,” he said.
