Too square on going forward, hung his chin out when stepping back out, none of the sublime footwork he possess now. I think Geale soundly beats Mundine on points in a rematch. 118-110 kinda card. Improved so much. Far more seasoned now and Mundine is really flat footed these days. Hand speed and relexes still very good but his legs are gone.
Fair assessment over all. I obviously will disagree about the decision in their fight. If what you say is true, and with a point deduction, then at worst should have been a draw, but, its down as a win for Mundine and it is what it is.
If this fight goes ahead, its holds more credibility for mundine than geale. Is a step up for mundine at this stage in his career, and coming off a medioca last few years. A good fight for Geale to avenge his only points loss, but thats it. He holds the titles, mundine does not.
12 round fight, no titles.
