yeah. he was comfortable a sm and had good power. he should have grown into a light heavy, but went the other way. and seems to have lost his power.
one of the factos for power is speed, the other is weight, you could also call in timing, and anchoring your feet. i still think he has or can put it together, but he trains to be a slugger, not as a slick boxer/puncher like he should have trained. the wisdom of his corner could win this fight for him with sage advise. but ive NEVER seen anything from them that suggests anything will change. fenech will try to have him lift his workrate...which will speed up the fight and see him destroyed. i just cant see anyone coaching him to slow the fight down.
i hope geale wins. its better for boxings future in oz if he does. but mundine has been walking round at middle for so long now, his body must have compensated. i still think he can punch, or has a punchers chance, despite the lack of clean ko's he's had. he is a solid puncher, dont worry. but so is sturm, and geale got round him.
$6 for a geale ko is good odds. choc should get into some of that action....
