ANTHONY Mundine may be a freakishly gifted fighter but the only Aussie to beat him says he has a "glass" stomach, a suspect chin and a morbid fear of being hurt.

Garth "From the Hood" Wood, the former reality TV show winner who knocked out Mundine in 2010 in one of Australian boxing's biggest upsets, said Daniel Geale could score an even more emphatic knockout in their world title fight with constant pressure at Sydney Entertainment Centre on Wednesday.

"Mundine was way more experienced than me when we fought in 2010," Wood said. "I'd only had nine fights and he'd had nearly 50, but early on I could tell he was intimidated by my power.
"The bloke hates getting hit. He'd attack me at different times but he was scared to commit in case he copped a big one on the chin in return.
"In the fifth round, I winded him and he tried to get away, but I cracked him with an overhand right and a left hook and he was out.
"If Geale jumps on Mundine at the opening bell and just keeps the pressure on Mundine - Jeff Fenech-style - then Mundine will go to water.
