    Anthony Mundine has taken the desperate step of writing an open letter to P4P champion Floyd Mayweather begging to be his next opponent.

    Mundine published a spelling error filled piece titled “Open letter to Floyd Mayweather from Anthony Mundine” on boxa.com.au and sadly it reads like a high-schooler asking for work experience.

    Here it is for your amusement >

    My man Floyd!

    My name is Anthony “The Man” Mundine! I am the uncrowned best athlete of all time! (check my resume). I was a rugby superstar before I quit at the top of my game due to racism & politics to take up boxing!

    No amateur background. I wanted to be world champ … I fought fighters far more experience than me from the start. I got 6 losses (same as you) from 53 fights. I had to learn on the job as I had no amateur experience.

    I believe when I’m mentally on, I can beat anybody! I’m charismatic, flamboyant, artistic, explosive athlete & fighter!

    I’ve held WBA 168lb title twice the IBO middleweight, WBA interim 154lb title & reigning 154 WBC silver champion (your mandatory). I think you the best of our era & everybody wanna fight you — but I’m the wonder from down under & the only one that can solve the mayvinchi code!

    So what Im trying to get at is I’m hoping to land the fight with you in Sept!

    You don’t ask … you don’t get! Consider a colourful character who’s your mandatory for September. It won’t be boring before, during or after the fight!

    heard you mentioned names like Mayfield & Berto as your next opponents. Im the mandatory and that should looked at. I’ve got other attributes that none of these cats got! Makes for a good boxing spectacle both in and outta the ring. Its what the boxing fans need to see!

    I revived boxing in my country. It was dead and I gave it mouth-to-mouth — and i’ve held it down for 15 years! And the Australian media doing their best to belittle me and keep me from my destiny. We have the tall poppy syndrome here. They wanna cut down the successful. And after all my achievements in two sports they still wont give me the credit. But thats cool. I already know im the best 2 sport champion ever. I dont need their validation. Thats why ima reachin out to you Floyd. Put on a Boxing spectacular.

    You want show time — I am show time! Somebody the world needs to see! I’ll give you a way better go than you been getting!

    It’s a 50-50 fight! Best athlete v best fighter??? Both got fast feet fast hands & fast mouth haha … or relinquish the Title as you’re preventing fighters like me in this position to take on the other champions or the bigger names in sport!

    Ask Sugar Shane if I can handle the stage! Ima fan of yours but I truly believe you were put on this earth for me to beat inshallah! No disrespect just my belief …

    I come from the land of the Kanagaroo where us natives shake a leg. Let’s go!

    holla back

    Yours sincerely,

    The Man (Choc)

    Well if you don't ask you don't get but is there even the slightest possibility Floyd knows who Mundine is let alone give him a shot in his retirement match..?

    The answers are very likely no on both counts.

    Had to laugh about the letter though :D

    It wore thin on me a long time ago. But the letter is the dumbest thing he's done in quite a while.

    In fairness it seems as though he once was the mandatory for one of the belts? If so, then I don't blame him for asking. Could have got someone else to write the letter though
