If you're an Aussie, then you probably either love or hate Anthony "The Man" Mundine. The rugby-league-star-turned-world-champion-boxer has been a controversial character throughout most of his sporting career, earning equal plaudits and pans for his outspoken attitude. No matter which side of the Mundine fence you sit on, the news that The Man has been confirmed as a playable pugilist in EA's upcoming Fight Night Round 4 should prove pleasing--adore him, and you can play as Mundine; loathe him, and you can pound on him in the game.
Mundine joins the likes of Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, and Sugar Ray Leonard as playable characters in Fight Night Round 4. Not only will Mundine be playable, but he will also grace the cover of the game down under on Xbox 360 versions alongside Ali. "I’m proud to be on the cover of Fight Night Round 4 with Ali. He’s always been an inspiration that I looked up to both inside and outside the ring." said Mundine.
Other boxers on the Fight Night Round 4 card include Filipino champion Manny Pacquiao, Emanuel Augustus, Nate Campbell, Kermit Cintron, Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton, and more. The game is coming out on the PS3 and Xbox 360 and is due out in Australia on July 2.
