Re: Mundine VS Geale.....how will it pan out?
mundine doesnt like preasure. kessler and siaca both preasured mundine, their size and strength worried him. thornberry, sullivan (1st fight), solomon (1st fight), all worried mundine with constant preasure.
stand back and box with him and he'll out speed you. which nearly happend to ottke.
all these fight happened at super middle. undoubtably, mundine was still strong at that weight. this fight is different. mundine is fighting a fighter who is young, fast, fit, and at a weight where his opponent is more comfortable than himself. geale knows his strenght at that weight. has done the rounds at that weight. mundine has never been pushed at middle. never been pushed early and had his stammina tested over the rest of the rounds.
geale has already made reference to mundines weight loss, and wondered out loud weather it may effect mundine. knowing that, makes me think that geale and crew are going to bring a fast pace to the fight early, bring preasure mid fight, and see what 'the man' has left in the final rounds.
if it pans out this way, and mundine flags towards the end, geals so called lack of power may in fact feel like a heavyweight is beating on mundine.
with no weight worries...mundine takes a points decision.
