Default Re: Geale Vs Mundine on 27th May

IMO Geale has 3 things he can use tom his advantage in this bout:
1. He throws punches in bunches...doesn't bob around one jab at a time, almost always 3 & 4 punch combo's.
2. Is a great body puncher, his left body rip is damaging.
3. Has a solid chin.
I dont see this as a step up for Geale, more a steping stone.
Mudines last few fights have exposed his lack of international genuine contenders and the damage it is doing to his abilities.
His last fight on review could be said to be nothing less than embarassing.
The tried true and tested defence of Mundine, the repeated turning of the back to his oponent was at it worst and showed a complete lack of respect to his oponent. Salting the wound to his oponent further were his pleas to the ref for being rabbit punched while employing this style of defence.
Geale is a classy fighter moving his career forward and his body punching and persisitant combo's upstairs will put him in good stead for a victory.

Welcome to ESB

Only 43 posts and you've already lost an avatar bet? Your avatar is the result of a lost bet isnt it? Surely no one would choose to have it.

Point 3 might be better reworded:
20 fights for 20 wins, undefeated record.
Has a chin solid enough to have assured him of an umblemished professional record.

Yes but Mundine is the best fighter Geale has come up against......not that Geales chin will be that tested.....but I do think Mundine will be evasive and quick on the night and geale will need to hit him often to get the points

Geale's chin would have been tested by Abraham. Iwish that fight was back on; rather see Geale in there than Lajuan Simon.

Good that he's still willing to step up. Something that Mundine doesn't seem too interested in, the way he constantly wants to fight guys below him, making easy money despite his performances suffering.

Is Mundine the best Geale will have faced up to....time will tell?
Mundine has fought the distance 5 of his last 6 fights. Cant finish has beens and "B" class boxers.
Krazy Kim dropped him.
Pintos thrashed his torso the entire fight with obvious displeasure to Mundine.
Taylor attempted to take it up to Mundine and he either crouched to the floor or completely turned his back. World Class...not!
I get the distinct feeling Mundines best days are behind him.
Nothing I have seen over the past 2 years from Mundine would rate him as a serious contender anymore.
The huggers lost in Mundines self hypnotising hype and need to stop flapping thier arms like chickens every time he claps his hands and take a honest look at his current form.

I would hardly call guys like Crazy Kim, Clavero, Pintos "B" class fighters. I don't think there's a letter in the alphabet to equate to their level.
