In the gift that just keeps on giving, Anthony Mundine got knocked out for a fifth time on Saturday night – awesome – and ‘The Man’ had the strangest epiphany when he awoke from his canvas nap: ‘Am I trapped in the movie ‘Groundhog Day?’
The film ‘Groundhog Day’ was released in 1993 and starred Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell and focused on the evolution of Bill Murray’s unlikable character who – through having to relive the same day over and over – grew into a better person before his life could move on. Given that Mundine has now been KO’d five times, it’s a fair conclusion to reach.
‘I keep reliving the same moment, so maybe I’m trapped in that movie? Shit. Is that Bill Murray over there?” asked a wobbly Mundine, pointing to a wheelie bin.
Consulting a medical professional, Mundine’s mind was put to rest when the Doctor and his teammates pointed out that no, he is just in fact old and slow and cannot do this anymore. Plus, at the age of 40 he hasn’t seemed to grow one bit and is still a tool. We wish Anthony a speedy recovery and hold out hope for a comeback so he can make it six in a row.
