January 30th 2013 is an important date for Australian boxing fans. Why ? Simply because two Australian idols will collide once more. On May 27th 2009 Anthony Mundine and Daniel Geale met in the ring for the first time. It was a good back and forth matchup between two good fighters with Mundine just edging it on the judges scorecards. Many think it was a controversial decision that should have gone Geale's way. This rematch will decide once and for all who is the better fighter of the two.
Geale , who hails from Launcesten , Tasmania Australia is a very good fighter. He won a Commonwealth gold medal at the 2002 Commonwealth games in the Welterweight division. Geale now boxes as a middleweight and is a two belt title holder. He won the WBA middleweight title against Felix Sturm in Germany. He went into the Sturm fight as the IBF champion. He won that title against Sebastian Sylvester , also in Germany. Going into the rematch Geale is a better fighter than what he was in the first Mundine fight four years ago.
Anthony Mundine comes from Newtown , New South Wales which is also in Australia. Mundine is mostly known for his trash talking and he often calls out "Floyd Mayweather" which is insane. Although Mundine is a Trash talker he has won four world titles and is no pushover.
The rematch could turn out to be a thriller , as both fighters are hungry to do their natives proud. In my opinion I'm going for Geale to win the rematch by a wide points margin.
What are your thoughts on the fight ?
