Mundine won on a unanimous points decision the last time the fighters met in 2006 in front of 30,000 fans at Sydney’s Allianz Stadium, an Australian boxing crowd record.

Next year’s bout is expected to draw in excess of 40,000 with each fighetr set to walk away with a reported $10 million each.

The bout will be fought at 83kg.

"I've been fighting with a bad hip - a very bad hip - for the last seven, eight years," Mundine told a press conference on Tuesday.

"That's fixed now. I feel my feet are back, my movement's back.

"I just want to put this shit to rest, that I'm the better man.

"Skills pay the bills. I'm going to be as sharp as I was in 2006."

Green, 43, said beating Mundine would be a perfect way to end his career.

"You hit me with everything you had with two hips. I didn't stop marching forward," Green said.

Mundine hasn't fought since November last year in his TKO loss to American Charles Hatley.

Green defeated Kane Watts on points last August to claim the vacant Australian cruiserweight title.
