Anthony Mundine protest

Green reacts to Mundine's protest against Australian national anthem

Mundine said to reporters on Monday that he is trying to "better Australia" and "educate people" by rejecting the nation's song - to be sung by indigenous performer Jessica Mauboy pre-bout.

But Green says he won't following Choc's lead and is adamant he doesn't have enough "emotional investment" in Mundine to be affected by anything he says.

"I’ll be standing and singing the anthem," Green said.

The controversial boxer held an impromptu interview at Rundle Mall on Monday, fielding questions about his planned boycott of the Australian national anthem before his super-fight with Danny Green at Adelaide Oval on Friday night.

Courier Mail journalist Grantlee Kieza asked Mundine how he can accept a seven-figure sum of money from the South Australian government to fight Green while protesting the anthem and the Australian flag.

Mundine replied: "I’m trying to better Australia, I’m not trying to disrespect the government - I’m trying to educate people.

Mundine will protest national anthem at Green rematch

The controversial Mundine has previously encouraged athletes to not acknowledge the anthem, claiming it is 'disrespectful' to indigenous Australians.

 “I’ll have no choice but to take a seat,'' Mundine told The Daily Telegraph.

“It’s a racist anthem and doesn’t represent our people.

“It’s disrespectful to our people. And this is close to my heart. I like Jessica but it’s not for our people.

''They are just using her because she is black.''

Foxtel are in talks with Mundine to find a solution whilst broadcasting to avoid any awkwardness.
