Horn KOs Mundine in opening round

Jeff Horn and Anthony Mundine face off during a press conference to promote their Brisbane bout last month

Jeff Horn and Anthony Mundine face off during a press conference to promote their Brisbane bout last month

He joined ESPN Australia's team in June, 2013.

Mundine looked shaky from the opening bell as Horn immediately went on the front foot, landing punches on the body and head before a left hook delivered the telling blow.

All week Mundine had been trash-talking the Queenslander, claiming that he was in prime form and a cut above, but the former NRL star couldn't even give fans one full round before referee Phil Austin declared Horn the victor.

Horn, who improves to a professional record of 19-1-1, admits even he didn't see the fight being so brief.

"I was expecting a tough fight but I felt really loose at this weight", Horn said following the bout.

"I guess we've got to sit down and talk about that still".

Mundine had previously announced that this would be the final time he would step into the ring and it's hard to see that changing after such an uninspiring performance.

Horn came out fast and landed a right hand early and set about putting the 43-year-old under pressure.

Mundine, who said there was no amount of money which would get him back into the ring, praised his opponent and wished him the best for his future.

"I've had a great career", Mundine said. I pass it on to them.

Mundine fell and the fight was over, a win in 96 seconds by knockout.
