Does anyone in Australia actually expect a close fight? For me ( Living in the United States ) it is clear cut that Mundine has faded a lot recently and Geale has improved. Since the first Wood fight what has Mundine done? Beat an old, shot Branco McKart?
Geale is coming off an excellent showing against long-time WBA champion Felix Sturm where he impressed me with his solid workrate and stamina throughout. Very consistent and that will be hard for the old Mundine to acutally deal with.
