Who won last time is a completely new subject, one where opinion is divided.
Even the 6 judges who ultimately scored the fight called it a draw.

So according to some (including myself), his workrate did win it.
and alot of the slow motion replays show geales combos completly missing the elusive Mundine.
Of course, there'll always be some that miss, and high workers always miss more than low workers. Nature of the fighting style.
Overall though, the high workrate fighter will typically land more.
imho its his weight loss that has caused this and he got a bit to comfortable fighting locals.
That's part of it, but you're forgetting his ****ed hip, his ****ed eye, and his age.
37 is old for a fighter who relied a lot on hand speed.
Flash knockdowns are a bit techinical, some will say no hurt was done but imo when you have been knocked onto your bum with a shot you have been hurt. He wasnt off balance he got caught flush.
It was a glancing blow that stunned him, nothing more.
As I said in another thread, if it had hurt him he wouldn't have bounced straight back up.
Mandy would also have been able to capitalise on a hurt fighter. The fact that he couldn't says it all.
he wont make that mistake this time round, he has a sht load more money than Geale and will invest in Prime sparring partners, he may even venture overseas to the states for a training camp. Geales sparring partners are VERY limited and he cant find anyone that will replicate Mundine... food for thought.
It won't matter, the fight was very close last time, that could have went either way.

Pretty much everyone agrees that Mandy has faded a certain amount, the only thing which is not agreed on, is by how much.

Pretty much everyone also agrees that Geale has improved by a certain amount.

Do the math...
Geale dont have the right hand that Mundine has.
Mandy doesn't have a good right hand anymore, particularly at MW.
Geale knocks his opponents out with a flurry he isnt really known for one punch knockouts,
Mundine in his prime was putting a few people to sleep with one punch.
Sure, tomato cans.
Not if they are not landing, u cant wear someone down punching the air.
That's the whole point, they will land.
Mandy is hit easily by tomato cans these days, what do you think Geale will do to him.
