Default Re: how does geale get the green/mundine boxing viewers to watch his fights?

Also Geales style of fighting doesn't appeal to normal sports fans...... i.e he is not a KO merchant like a Tyson was
i don't buy that.

of course he's not going to get 100% of them, but with some initiative, i believe he can a decent chunk of them.

its not even necessarily the green/mundine fans, moreso the ones who simply watch their fights. many people buy/watch the fights cause they get caught up in the event type atmosphere.

of course he must beat mundine first.

but in the lead up to it, and post fight, he has to talk up the going to take on the world next persona.
