Mudine lashes Horn camp over 'short cut' jibes


//

Anthony Mundine has hit out at Jeff Horn's camp after they claimed that Mundine would be tempted to take prohibited substances to make weight for their fight. 

Mundine is aiming to drop weight for the 71kg bout on November 30 in Brisbane, and Horn's trainer Glenn Rushton claimed that the three-time world champion could take "short cuts".

Rushton suggested that Mundine could use diuretics or prohibited substances and wanted the former NRL star to lose weight properly, prompting a furious response from the 43-year-old.

"I am the most elite athlete Australia has ever had – I don’t take short cuts," Mundine said.

"I have never drunk (alcohol) or taken any type of drug in my life.

"I am not going to take diuretics, that is going to make me even weaker.

"I don’t want to come into the fight drained."

Under the contract of the fight, Mundine will be required to pay a fine of $20,000 for every 100 gram of the first kilogram he is over the weight limit of 71kg and then $500,000 for every kilogram after that. 

Mundine alleged that Horn's camp brought in the stipulations to try and get him off his game in the lead up to the fight. 

"They (Horn camp) want to try and limit me the best they can to make me as vulnerable as I can be," he said.

"They want to put all these stipulations in to make it even harder.

"I just said, 'let’s do it, sign the contract, and then we will see what’s up with your boy'."
