Australia’s favourite son has dropped a bombshell in the African jungle saying he’s transgender during an episode of “I’m a celebrity”
It comes after speculation was rife that a boxing comeback was on the cards as former boxing foe Danny Green also entered the jungle.
Mundine said the rumours were partially true but added his comeback would be as a woman and that he always identified as a woman.
“I think that’s where all my anger has come from over the years”
“It’s what happens when you deny your true self and I’ve always felt like a white woman in a black mans body”
Mundine hopes the transition will finally get him the respect and admiration he craves and hopes to serve as a role model to others.
“People used to give me a hard time for my controversial opinions but now they will have to choice but to look up to me and respect me.”
“I’ve always liked the idea of beating up woman in the ring and now I can be seen as an inspirational role model for doing so.”
Channel 10 have already acquired the rights to the fight and an executive said a trans Mundine beating up a woman was guaranteed to attract huge numbers.
