I have no doubt you are right.
However fact is he is no1 contender and Geale should defend against him as per the rules, otherwise what is the point of rankings and belts. Soliman earned his shot by beating Wood (who KOed Mundine), Albert just as well as Geale did, and Lorenzo better than both Sturm and Sylvester (who drew with Karmazin) -who Geale beat for the belts.
Australian boxing PPV is about the public as a whole, not just boxing fans. If you as the average punter who Sam Soliman is they are as likely to know as much as Geale. Geale would have to be the most unknow Australian unified world boxing champion ever.
If Geale does 3000PPV then it would do more if sold as a fight with the winner to go against Mundine. All while Geale fights his manditory fight.
