Anthony Mundine sensationally quit SAS Australia on Tuesday after failing to impress the Directing Staff during a challenge.
The boxing champion, 48, had to navigate Abbey Holmes through several buildings to safety while watching her on a drone.
However Mundine failed to warn Holmes about the enemy holding a weapon behind an abandoned property and failed to get her to the safety vehicle.
After failing to impress the DS, Mundine told the other recruits he was ready to quit the show.
‘It’s time to go now. I gave it a crack,’ he said.

‘I feel like a failure to myself. I’m too competitive… I’m ready to go now,’ he told them before farewelling the recruits.
Mundine then put his backpack on and walked over to Ant Middleton to hand over his armband.
‘I’m not going to keep you here. I want you to go out on a high. Just take each day as it comes,’ Ant told him.
Mundine then made a decision to remain on the show and walked back to join the other recruits.
But it was not for long. By the end of the episode he voluntarily withdrew.
‘Walking away, I feel great. I feel that I’ve changed, and something has pushed me out of my comfort zone,” he said.
‘Doing a task, even though I didn’t pass a lot of them, I actually learned there are certain things for certain people.
So, I’m like one of the best athletes ever. I didn’t say I was the best SAS fella, ‘ he continued.
‘I just came to enjoy the experience. I made it halfway through and I’m grateful for that.’
The boxing champion was pitted against Robards, 40, in a physical challenge where they had to wrestle each other on a platform above a cliff drop.
They were both secured by harnesses to ensure safety and while Mundine initially looked confident, he quickly soured after Robards surprisingly overpowered him.
Mundine was seen losing his grip while wrestling Robards and in a humiliating moment, lost his balance and fell off the platform.
‘I’m The Man. Come on, it’s going to be easy work, if you know what I mean,’ Mundine had told his co-stars about wrestling Robards, shortly before his shock defeat.

The Sydney native did not take the loss in good stride, and threatened to quit the show after host Middleton teased him about the loss.
‘Mate f**k, look he’s 15kg heavier. I’d still pump him, bruh. Get in the ring with me,’ a red-faced Mundine said of the loss.
Fortunately, Middleton managed to convince Mundine to stay on the show after ringing his mother who gave her son a pep talk.
‘That was a big pick me up, bro,’ he told Middleton.
It comes one day after Mundine threatened to quit SAS Australia during Monday’s episode after suffering a humiliating defeat against The Bachelor ‘s Tim Robards
