A kangaroo has enrolled in a boxing class with big dreams of taking on Anthony Mundine.

Benders The Red Kangaroo said (via a translator) “I’ve been doing boxercise 2 hours a day for the past 6 months. I feel like I’m ready to roll.”

His trainer Bevan McTights said “We started with some light sparring and he picked it up straight away. He’s a natural born boxer and progressing well. His technique is great and his footwork is brilliant.”

“Skippy is my inspiration. I became a huge fan after he saved Sonny from a well,” said Benders.

Mundine has come out of retirement after 2 months which is still quicker than John Farnham.

To Benders, the match is more personal “I’m dedicating the fight to my dad who Mundine hit with his car.”
