Green and Mundine may meet in re-match

7:01 pm on 13 April 2012

A boxing re-match between arch rivals Danny Green and Anthony Mundine is back on the cards, but whether the long-anticipated fight will actually go ahead remains up in the air.

Green has been desperate to avenge his 2006 loss to Mundine, even coming out of retirement in 2009 to take up the offer of a re-match.

Negotiations swiftly broke down and the difference in weight between the men has proved to be a continual stumbling block.

In 2006, Green struggled to make the super-middleweight limit of 76.2kg in his points loss.

The pair have gone in drastically different directions since then, Mundine dropping to the light-middleweight limit (and Green moving up to cruiserweight.

Despite the difference in body mass, the pair have re-ignited talk of a re-match in recent days, with Mundine even declaring he would contemplate conceding 10kg to ensure the fight goes ahead.
