Horn is returning to the venue which saw his triumph over Manny Pacquiao last July in front of more than 51,000 people. It was the fight that made him a household name and ensure all eyes were on him when he took on Terence Crawford almost 12 months later. It marked the first loss of his professional career, and Horn will definitely be looking to comeback from the defeat with a win over Mundine.

Nickname: The Man

Birthplace/Country: Sydney, Australia

He's as familiar with the ring as he is with the art of pre-fight trash talking and if the latter is anything to go by, Mundine is out for blood. He's been as vocal about the decision to fight at 71kg - "I'm gonna be right, he better be right, I want him at his best because I don't want no excuses" - as he has about Horn himself - "He's all hype, the Great White Hype". After close to two decades of professional boxing, Mundine will be hoping to go out on a high note in the last fight before he retires.
