Default Re: The rise and rise of Australia's own Daniel Geale

Totally agree with that.

But the thing is that the Geale-Mundine fight makes financial sense and has a very limited window of opportunity. And at this point, Mundine is quite likely a weaker opponent compared to the 2009 version.

So the fight makes perfect sense, but only now. If Geale fights another top-10 rated opponents and wins - then he does not need the Mundine fight to convince his fans. If he loses - then nobody wants to see the fight anyway.

So it is basically a one-shot opportunity to get paid. Fight Mundine, repair his one loss, get back to fighting quality opponents. With his only career loss revenged, future fights should allow for better paydays.
