The war or words continue between Anthony Mundine and trainer/former champion Jeff Fenech. The rift began after Mundine called the June 24 trilogy bout between Fenech, 43, and Azumah Nelson, 49, "a battle of the jurassics." Fenech went on the attack and said his trilogy bout held more credibility than Mundine's third meeting with Sam Soliman on May 28. Fenech called the Mundine-Soliman trilogy "a farce" to boxing and told fans to avoid supporting the fight.

The comments by Fenech struck a nerve with Mundine, who fired off like a madman when speaking with the Herald Sun. Not only did Mundine sound off, he dared Fenech to move up to middleweight for a fight.

"The only foregone conclusion here is that Jeff Fenech will again be exposed as a nobody by Azumah Nelson," Mundine said. "He's a nobody. All he ever had going for him was grit and determination. He never had boxing ability. I'd have beaten him in his heyday and I'd whip him now if he ever wanted to meet me at middleweight. It would be a real pleasure. It's pitiful that he should be fighting again after nearly 12 years out of the ring."

Mundine says that every one of his wins is a mismatch because his skills are beyond those of his opponents. He then made one of his usual controversial comments by stating that he will not allow himself to lose to a fighter who follows the Christian belief.

"Every fight I have is a mismatch. I'm just giving Soliman a chance because every fighter has an ego and pride. But he will need a miracle to beat me. It was stopped in nine rounds last year and he'll be lucky to last that long again. He said he had problems before fighting me then - the biggest problem was having me in the other corner.

"I'm a Muslim and I can't allow myself to lose to a Christian. My people are persecuted all over the world and they need inspirational figures like myself, Zinedine Zidane in soccer and also fellow fighters like Sugar Shane Moseley to look up to. People can say what they like about me and my beliefs. I don't give a damn. The only entity I answer to is Allah."

First he made a mockery of 9/11 and now this. The guy must hate the idea of ever having a single fan.
Mundine Bumdine is a disgrace to the human race. Anyone making fun of 9-11 and the thousands of people it devastated doesnt deserve to share the air we breathe. Mosely is a muslim so is Ali you dont hear them sounding of like that

Im pretty sure he wasnt making fun of 9/11 he just said that his race has been treated unfairly since then and thats true imo, but def stupid thing to say. Oh and after reading it again he didnt say a thing about 9/11 so i dont know what your talking about.

You must be looking at something else. He said Americans deserved what happened on 9/11.

In 2001, Mundine commented on the September 11, 2001 attacks. He criticised the American Government, claiming that its foreign policies had helped to foster an environment in which terrorism could flourish. When asked about what he thought about Australian troops joining Americans in Afghanistan he stated:

"I really feel that it's not our problem. They call it an act of terrorism but if you understand the religion and our way of life it's not about terrorism, it's about fighting for God's laws and America's brought it upon themselves [for] what they've done in history and so on."[12] Mundine's stance attracted some vocal critics at the time.

The idea that individual, racial, religious, cultural or political empowerment can come at the cost/ subjugation of those of your world neighbors has in the long term (historically) been proven to be misguided, ignorant and deeply flawed in its thinking.

There is and always will be a high toll to pay for such thinking, words and actions.

Self determination is all well and good, but it should never come at the cost of the next man.

IMHO.
