Up-and-coming boxer Garth Wood will take on the experienced Anthony Mundine at the Acer Arena.

Former NRL star Garth Wood will go toe-to-toe with Anthony Mundine in a highly-anticipated boxing contest in Sydney next month.

The event is scheduled to take place at the Acer Arena on December 8th 2010, with Wood facing what many pundits believe to be the biggest test of his career since he won hit reality TV show The Contender Australia.

After triumphing on the programme, the ex-South Sydney Rabbitohs man has overcome the likes of Ryan Coppick and Elvin Marbun inside the ring, but admitted the chance to take on Mundine has given him a "great thrill".

Mundine, who has 40 wins and three losses to his name, reserved some words of respect for his opponent, who he described as a "strong fighter".

He added: "I've got a possible WBA world title fight early next year, but one step at a time and right now my focus is beating Garth Wood on December 8th."

Boxing enthusiasts desperate to watch the fight live at the Acer Arena should move fast to book tickets as demand for both is likely to be high.

Passes cost between A$50 and A$500, while doors are set to open at 18:30 local time.
