Default Re: Mundine called it before the fight - Robbery

mundine was basically trying to slow down the pace of the fight, ala mayweather, and turn it into a chess match. but what he didnt do enough was land and lead . floyd is able to do this by leading, landing and clinching the fight down to his pace. mundine was flat footed and though i could see what he wanted to do, as he has aged, he didnt do it well enough to justify a win. but in the middle to late rounds he did turn geale and land some crisp shots that gave him a few rounds for mine. geale was really sloppy in the mid late rounds, hardly landing anything of value, but he was active as hell- like a young ricky hatton, and thats why he won them. the old adage, who would u rather be in that round is why geale cleaned up. even in rounds mundine may have landed cleaner or more, geale looked stronger, more alert and alive, and the more dominant in the ring. he looked like he wanted to be there, whereas choc looked awkward and uncomfortable for long stretches. his body language seemed to say- "why are u trying so hard- lets make this a touching contest- not a fight".

good fight. would nt mind seeing it again.
