I agree, that's not what I meant. The early warnings for head/elbows came after short bursts of Geale dominance and Choc reacts. If you compare punches thrown and landed, then I think the most noticeable statistic would be punches thrown from the centre of the ring. Geale was exaggerating foot and head movement, Choc was reeling and counter punching.
Geale wore Mundine's hits with more composure and delivered a polished display and if that was the first fight you ever saw then I think it would be obvious to everyone who the champ was.
