The 49% knockout ratio for Mundine is quite an average figure and this is down to his average punching power. The last knockout victory for Mundine was back in 2013. Browne has largely come up against regional opposition. His biggest weakness may be his rather low punching power – reflected by his 30% KO record.
Even though both fighters are beyond their prime, Australian boxing could have a major boost with this fight. Mundine usually has his fights in the heavier divisions. Even though age has caught up with the 42-year-old, he has the experience and power. Browne has a substantially lower record in recent times and this is due to the struggles with regard to knockouts. We expect a win for Mundine. Let's now see some boxing betting odds!
Browne is not the greatest knockout puncher in the world. Even though Mundine is significantly older, he has the experience and the punching power. Yet, Mundine is without a knockout win in the last four years. Our Anthony Mundine vs Tommy Browne predictions suggest that it is better to go with a win for Mundine at a great price with Unibet. Browne is younger and longer in reach, but he lacks the experience, and Mundine's motivation seems to be way more powerful. The possibility of a Mundine win is quite high with the boxer coming in with plenty of power and a huge desire to overcome his latest defeates. Browne may have a decent record, but he is not much for the opponent’s record.
Mundine has won the vast majority of his matches by Decision or Technical Decision throught the years, with very few KOs. Even if his rate of KOs stands at a decent 49%, the second half of his career so far has seen him win by Decision mostly. While this may seem like a riskier bet, it is indeed for those who are looking for greater returns. Browne is yet to overcome the death of his brother, and his lack of focus might cost him the match, hence our choice of a Mundine victory by Decision.
