if geale didnt land a headshot all night he still would have won with his body work alone. chocs ribs would be killing him today and mundine just wasnt punching.
all he had was that pawing jab and one good uppercut in the second round and THATS IT. he was fighting for survival in the end

i thought the fight was closer than what the commentators did thats for sure. i had it for geale 7 to 5. he had it won simply for activity and workrate, but yeah, mundine was cleaner and crisper, but was flat footed and defensive for so long, that i couldnt give him winning rounds where he would jsut defend and then land maybe 3 jabs and a cross a whole round, while danny would glance about 15 to 20 shots , though not clean, were still scoring.

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.

Barry Michaels has been doing that for years in Mundine's favour.

Barry Michael is one of the greatest Mundine nut huggers the world has known and even he saw that Mundine was not in that fight.

mundine was basically trying to slow down the pace of the fight, ala mayweather, and turn it into a chess match. but what he didnt do enough was land and lead . floyd is able to do this by leading, landing and clinching the fight down to his pace. mundine was flat footed and though i could see what he wanted to do, as he has aged, he didnt do it well enough to justify a win. but in the middle to late rounds he did turn geale and land some crisp shots that gave him a few rounds for mine. geale was really sloppy in the mid late rounds, hardly landing anything of value, but he was active as hell- like a young ricky hatton, and thats why he won them. the old adage, who would u rather be in that round is why geale cleaned up. even in rounds mundine may have landed cleaner or more, geale looked stronger, more alert and alive, and the more dominant in the ring. he looked like he wanted to be there, whereas choc looked awkward and uncomfortable for long stretches. his body language seemed to say- "why are u trying so hard- lets make this a touching contest- not a fight".

good fight. would nt mind seeing it again.

Geale's corner told him he needed the last round, Mundine's corner told him 3 more minutes until you're the champ.

Boxing off the back foot cost Choc a deserved decision. Offensively he looked off in the first round or so but he pinged Geale all fight with the jab whilst blocking the majority of Geale's work.

Travesty for boxing......

*On a sidenote I would like to highlight how lame Geale's attempts at showboating were, he looked like a tosser.
I'm guessing this is a tongue in cheek post?

as he walked into his dressing room after the fight, it looked like he was walking a bit gingerly. you may be right, the body work may have done some damage.

The reason Mundine didn't press and come forward more was BecauseGeale would've knocked him out. That was made clear early - better ring craft and composure.
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.
