Re: Soliman beats Sturm. Does Geale take the fight or drop the IBF MW title?
I'm sure Geale won't be dropping the IBF title.
Personally, I'd make the mandatory (in either Melbourne or Tassie).
That then clears the decks for him to fight whoever he wants over the next 12 months.
Sergio is likely committed for his next two fights so I don't really see a problem with Geale continuing to build his profile in Australia with a mandatory defence against Sam or even Mundine III.
After Mundine II, a lot more people in Australia are going to want to see him fight.
