John Wayne Parr (10-3) faces Anthony Mundine (48-9) in a boxing match on November 29. The pair battles it out at the 27,000-capacity Cbus Super Stadium in Robina, Gold Coast, Australia.
Mid last month Parr returned to Japan. Going through the ropes in Nagoya, he faced Danilo Zanolini of Brazil in a three-round kickboxing match. The encounter went the distance and ended in a split decision in favor of the latter.

Talking to media at the recent promo for his fight with Mundine, Parr revealed that he was “probably” looking for another outing as kickboxer. Once done, he was ready to hang up his gloves.
“Probably this [Mundine] fight and one more fight in kickboxing before I am done,” he said.
The recent result in Japan was the second defeat “The Gunslinger” suffered in a row. Prior to that he was riding the six-fight win streak.
Overall over the course of his career John Wayne Parr, who turned 43 in May, earned 10 world titles in kickboxing and Muay Thai, as well as defeated the likes of Mike Zambidis, Yodsanklai Fairtex, Daniel Dawson, to name a few. His current kickboxing record is 99-34.
Mundine, 44, makes a return to the boxing ring after a year of lay off. In his previous bout last November he was stopped by Jeff Horn 96 in the first round. Before that he defeated Tommy Browne by TKO in Round 2 and lost by majority decision against Danny Green.
“There is no more ‘if, buts’ about it. If I lose – I am out,” said Mundine ahead of his encounter with JWP.
The Parr vs. Mundine bout is scheduled for ten rounds at catchweight with the limit of 75 kg.
