According to online sportsbooks in Australia a win for Anthony Mundine will be the resurrection of “The Man”, otherwise a third consecutive loss would end his ambitions to have a potential shot at the middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders.

Online betting sites expect a swift win for “The Man”, yet our Anthony Mundine v Tommy Browne predictions opt for “The Titan”.

Browne “The Titan” returned to the ring in 2017, to capture the both IBO Asia-Pacific super welterweight boxing title, and UBO super welterweight title in Singapore. He took down the former WBC super-featherweight world title holder Sirimingkhon in October, and the Indonesia’s Alexander Bajawa in May with a third round TKO. Browne’s two straight victories came two years later after he walked away from the ring following the death of his brother Davey from injuries sustained in a boxing bout at Ingleburn RSL.
2017 was great success for Browne unlike Mundine who is trying to pass his first assignment since his controversial loss to Danny Green almost a year ago. Therefore, our predictions go in favor of Browne. His odds are 2.75 at Unibet Sportsbook, while the odds for Mundine stand at 1.44.
