So why don't you wipe the GGG **** from your eyes and actually do some research, idiot. But as you are a GGG **** jockey, that makes you a re**** and re****s need to be spoon fed so here you go:
They already stretched the rules to drag out the mandatory, and it was finally due for political reasons. So Geale inherited Sturms immediate mandatory. It'd be unfair to GGG, what if Geale loses, the other guy gets 9 months and so on. If Geale wanted to keep the belt, he should have signed on for the fight. Then he could go back home and really call the shots on Mundine, HBO would be swooning over him. If he won of course, sure thing according to you
