Anthony Mundine – The Man
From father to son
A name is given,
A heart full of will power
A young boy’s Life is driven,
Born a gifted athlete
Determined to fulfill his destiny
To lead his people and honour a nation;
Like our forefathers would have said before
We are from the mainland...!
We have never been offshore...!
When it comes to boxing
What can you say?
Now The Man is reborn
The legend will remain...!
