Three-time boxing world champion Anthony Mundine is bringing his message of motivation, hope and “re-empowerment” to young people in the South West, giving a lucky few the opportunity to hear about the mindset that has kept him strong throughout some of the high-pressure times in his life.

The Super League Premiership winner and New South Wales State of Origin representative will be holding his Mundine: Mindset of a Champ workshops at the Italian Club in East Bunbury on September 21.

A workshop from 10am-12pm will be open to people 18 year and over, and another session will run from 3.30pm-5.30pm for 12-18-year-olds.

Event organisers have advised that these workshops are now fully booked.

Well-know for his anti-alcohol stance, Mundine uses the workshops to open up about other situations and solutions that helped him in his path to becoming a world champion.

Co-facilitator for the talks, barrier-breaking former National Basketball League player Timmy Duggan, said the workshops hone in on the idea of “re-empowerment”.

“It’s not about just empowering people — what they need is already within them,” Duggan said.

“We want participants to walk away saying they are re-empowered.

“We find that those who enrol for our programs are unaware of their own capacities, and through this course and our many others, we intend to change that.”

The workshops are being held in conjunction with the South West Aboriginal Medical Service.

Mundine left rugby league side St George Illawarra halfway through the 2000 season, moving to a boxing career that earned him three world-championships over more than two decades in the ring from 2000 to 2021.
