Geale has said on several occasions that he has worked on his power but it hasnt seemed to eventuate.

I ask this anyway as a Geale supporter, not trying to trash him.

Yep, its why the seppos didn't warm to Calzaghe as well

It's human nature to like a KO artist. People like to see the Mike Tyson type devastation.
