Former world middleweight champion Anthony Mundine has announced that he is set to fight legendary boxer "Sugar" Shane Mosley.

Mundine described the fight, which is expected to take place in October as a "huge and defining moment".

The fight, reportedly to be held in Sydney, will be Mundine's first since losing an IBF world middleweight title bout to fellow Australian and arch rival Daniel Geale in January.

"The wait is finally over, I will be fighting Sugar Shane Mosley at 154p. Lets go!" he announced on social media.

"Sugar Shane Mosley Signed & Deal Done! more details to follow," added the 38-year-old former rugby league player.

"This is going to be huge and a defining moment. I feel blessed".

Mosley, who has won five world titles in three weight classes, announced his retirement in June last year after he lost a unanimous decision to junior middleweight champ Saul "Canelo" Alvarez of Mexico.

But the 41-year-old returned to the ring in May, beating Pablo Cesar Cano by unanimous decision to win the vacant WBC international welterweight title in Mexico.
