Mundine has lost it as a powerful athlete. The incredibly athletic (and completely unskilled) Mundine, that Ko'd Guy Waters and almost Ko'd Sven Ottke on athletisism and power along, died along time ago.

The Mundine of today has all the skill and experience to be a P4P top tener. Unfortunately as an athlete, he's not only over the hill but, he's climbed mount everest.

If he could start his career again and did everything he should have done from the start I have no doubt he could have been a premier fighter of the world

He was simply outclassed.

Never said he had to, I said if he did he would get starched by Mundine...

Agree or disagree?

Disagree , Choc was scared of contact at middleweight he would be bricking at the tought of a 168lbs Geale clipping him .

Edit , my bad I didn't read your post correctly , yes a prime 168 Mundine beats Geale at super middle ,

Prime Mundine at Supermiddle would toy with Geale
Danny Green at Supermiddle would destroy Geale in 3 rounds

Neither fighter has done anything to show they could beat Geale.

Unless of course you think being beaten every time they stepped up is evidence of this?

Yeah, but you said "If Geale had the balls to move up to SMW" which implies he had the opportunity to but baulked at it.

In answer to your question - no, I don't believe he would get starched by Mundine at SMW as he's too elusive - Mundine's money shot is the overhand right, which he rarely was able to hit Geale with due to his angles and footwork.

What changes at SMW that make syou think Geale gets KOd by Mundine?

Mundine at Supermiddle was faster stronger more agressive had better timing and was more powerful, a shot to shit Mundine was able to land some clean shots on Geale, If Mundine landed one of those uppercuts in his prime with the power he once had it would have been lights out for Geale.

To say Mundine & Green choked when they stepped up is laughable
I don't recall Green choking when he belted the shit out of Beyer & Lucas, Green would have been way to strong & agressive for Geale to handle.

Mundine did not choke against Echols who at the time was way more dangerous than Felix Sturm or Sylvester, people are quick to forget that most thought Echols would starch Mundine.

I don't agree.
Geale will also be stronger at SMW.
Geale will always be the smarter fighter than Mandy, and that's why he'll always win.

Mandy had some very good talent, but he never had a great boxing brain.

No one said either of them choked.
But they always got beaten at the top.

green also ****ed up with beyer. Lucas was a joke
Green was never champion material
same goes to mundine, he lost to the great Dane, lost to that other bum in his first title defence... he never fought any other champions and also lost to ottke...
