Default How would Geale fare against the 4 boxers who have defeated Mundine?

1) Sven Ottke...Hard to split this one...Ottke was undefeated...but had some real dodgy decisions go his way.

Geale has defeated Sturm at home who is probably very close to Ottke in ability and had a very narrow points loss to de La Hoya which says a lot...Also...Sturm smashed Sylvester which puts him up there methinks.

I lean towards Geale (with not a lot of confidence)

2) Manny Siaca... The perenial World Title contender...probably had more World Title fails than I've had hot dinners before he finally found someone he could Mundine

No contest...Geale would win a wide points decision

3) Mikkel Kessler...Looked almost unbeatable until Calzaghe gave him a boxing lesson...Kessler couldn't cope with Calzaghe's constant flurries.

Geale would use the same tactics and would be in with a shot as long as Kessler didn't tag him... I lean towards a Kessler KO...but wouldn't be surprised by a points victory to Geale

4) Garth Wood...The only genuine Middleweight that has beaten Mundine

He KO'd Mundine and then lost narrowly on points to Mundine in the rematch

Wood is not in the same league as Geale and Geale would retire him for good

I realise that Ottke...Siaca and Kessler fought at a higher weight division so that makes for more guesswork

Your thoughts?
