If i was you sox i wouldnt count my chickens before they hatch, i can envision you curled up in your armchair bawling your eyes out after Mundine puts on one hell of a display and takes Geales title.
At 38yo, all he has left is EXHIBITIONS. he can display all he likes. but he is nowhere near going to stay the pace with geale....not a chance. all mundine can do is slow the fight.....spit a guard, unfurl a wrap, fake a low blow, wet the corner, hit hard, etc, etc.
but no, mundines time has gone. sturm has toughened geale, and mundine has been fighting few rounds against quality opposition.
fitness is about recovery. you just dont recover at 38 like you do at 31. thats about a 17% recovery percentage difference. fast fight. fast night.
