MAN WITH A MISSION



WITH his highly anticipated bout against Danny Green less than a month away, boxer Anthony 'The Man' Mundine's training schedule is hectic to say the least.

And for the next three weeks, the remote village of Baryulgil will play host to Mundine and his entourage as he enters the final phase of his preparation for the April 19 bout.

Mundine arrived in the village on Saturday.

But it's not all training for Mundine. Yesterday there was enough time for him to help out at the South Grafton Rebels sausage sizzle.

Over the next 19 days, Mundine will fly in Roy Jones Senior from America and sparring partners from New Zealand to complete his preparation for one of the biggest fights in Australian boxing history.

"Being back here is like coming home for me, there is a lot of family here," he said.

"We are setting up here and I brought a ring out because I thought it would be a good chance to come back to focus."
