  Mundine still has hopes of an NRL return Never give up.

Anthony Mundine , preparing for what is likely to be his final year in the ring, is already thinking about his legacy. " This will be the resurrection of 'The Man' or the demise of 'The Man'. We'll soon find out," Mundine said at the announcement of the Browne fight at The Star on Thursday.

Anthony Mundine, preparing for what is likely to be his final year in the ring, is already thinking about his legacy.

His next fight, against fellow Australian Tommy Browne, will guarantee the winner a top-10 WBO ranking and a potential shot at the division's champion, superstar middleweight Billy Joe Saunders. Gennady Golovkin, Saul Alvarez and Jeff Horn are also on Mundine's wish list. A third consecutive loss would end those ambitions.

"This will be the resurrection of 'The Man' or the demise of 'The Man'. We'll soon find out," Mundine said at the announcement of the Browne fight at The Star on Thursday.

The bout, to be staged on January 17, is significant for other reasons. It is Mundine's 56th fight since walking away from the NRL, but marks the first time he isn't performing before a pay-per-view television audience. It is also his first assignment since his controversial loss to Danny Green almost a year ago. The dodgy hip that hampered him during that fight, and many others over the past decade, is no longer an issue.

"There's a calculated plan to have a big year and make all of my dreams come true," Mundine said.

"Then sail off into the sunset."

He must first negotiate Browne. Unlike "The Man", Browne has remained active, is unbeaten in his past 10 fights and at age 34 is eight years younger than the former footballer. The pair will square off in the second instalment of "Star of the Ring", an event that showcases genuine pugilists as well as footballers wanting to test themselves in the ring. Cronulla Sharks captain Paul Gallen will be on the card against a yet-to-be-confirmed opponent.

There was no trash talk between Mundine and Browne when they faced off on Thursday. For Browne, Mundine represents the biggest potential scalp in a career that almost ended when his brother, Davey, tragically died from injuries sustained in a boxing bout in 2015. For Mundine, it is an opportunity to earn what would be just his second win in four years, as well as a crack at more lucrative opponents.

"[Saunders] is definitely one of the best, a great challenge and a big accomplishment if I can beat him.

"I want to fight the best and he's the WBO champion. He will be one that we try to look at."

Browne likes the idea of being dismissed as a stepping stone to bigger fights.

"If that's what he thinks, then good for him," Browne said.

"But after that bell rings at the end of round one and he goes back to the corner, I believe he will be thinking a lot different.

"I strongly believe at this stage of our careers, I'm a better fighter than him right now. I've been busy, he's only had one fight. He's getting on in age and it does catch up on you.

"Mundine is still a big name and a victory over him would be huge for my career."
