That is a truly ridiculous interpretation of the fight.

the commentators were disgraceful. thats what u call pre-judging. they were seeing what they wanted to see. oohing and aahhing at a danny flurry that didnt land anything, and basically speaking outside the context of the actual fight. its a shame because its an instance where it really coloured the viewing.

first time i watched it live, sound on- i had it 10 to 2 danny. second time with sound off, i had it 7 to 5. still a win for geale so maybe it dosent matter. but it was closer than what people will give credit for- nobody schooled anybody, nobody kicked anybodies ass.
Sensible post.

Considering you don't watch boxing save for Danny Green weigh ins you will have missed Barry's telling nugget in the pre hype.

Go look at your favourite pictures creep.

No. Mundine deserved the victory.

You could argue the scores of a few rounds but Geale controlled what Choc did and didn't do for 12 consecutive rounds. Despite a valiant effort the champ gets the benefit of the doubt IMO in the close ones. Shutout.
Aggression and effective aggression are two separate things. Geale marched forward all night landing on gloves/arms/elbows for the most part. Even his corner were asking him to throw.

The rounds of a fight should never be based on who is the champion that is a common myth for know nothing boxing fans.

Any other view of this fight is wrong. The video does not lie, neither does the big points difference, decided by professional judges that have been doing this for a ****ing long time.

Your viewpoint means nil.

Geale UD
Copying choc? I genuinely sat watching the fight thinking what fight were the commentators watching. Yes Mundine was on the back foot but his work was clean.

Mundine won.

Geale put on a clinic and annihilated a well past it fighter who actually fought brave.
I think Mandy did well to even stay in that fight, and you know it.
Mate I am sure you are very happy as I would have been had Choc got the nod but you cannot seriously tell me you had it by a landslide for Geale.

I gave Mundine 2 rounds (7, and most would say that's generous. For anyone to claim Mundine won is ludicrous, I watched it at a casino and couldn't hear commentators so I wasn't influenced by that. I'm not particularly a Geale or Mundine fan, I like to watch them both and I don't generally care about talk and out of ring stuff. The way Mundine walked off and is now claiming robbery though, that's the first time I've found him offensive and really thought that he's a ****head.
Geale touched him on the arms and shoulders, of course some punches got through but it was Choc doing the cleaner more consistent work in the face of a high workrate.

If we're going to accuse Geale of non-scoring pitterpatter flurries, we'd best include Mundine's shoeshining and airswinging in the equation too
You manage to surpass your own idiocy every post. You seriously know zero about boxing.

In the future I will scroll straight past your posts as I can't see the point in reading comments made from someone whose knowledge of boxing isn't
just limited, it is non existent.

Are you for real or are you just upset that the circus may be leaving town ?
Shouldn't you be organising a Dannyweight match and inserting a can from the 80s into your rankings for him?

Dan Rafael is an awful source. Poorly played.

based on work rate and the fact that Geale was controlling the fight and the tempo those rounds go to him..

Mundine simply didnt do much in the fight and yes he blocked a lot0 but you cant win fights by BLOCKING
Defence is a category that judges use to score fights. Pressuring whilst eating constant jabs isn't effective aggression. Work rate means nothing if you aren't landing clean shots. The majority of people on here are so so so uneducated.

Nobody actually managed a rebuttal to my initial post...
