Geale ' I really enjoyed puniching him' ;D ;D ;D

Yeah, I was pretty happy with that call myself.
Pretty boring fight. Geale is obviously a good fighter and very textbook but hasn't got a knockout punch as already mentioned.

Mundine past it and you seriously wonder about his mental health,

For the first time I seriously thought , is he actually crazy ?

Easy win from Geale. How quick is he... Lightning.

The win ranks nowhere near his victories in Germany which are still vastly underrated, but this fight will at least help his profile in this country to get the plaudits he deserves.

He will likely fight Felix Sturm next to re-unify the IBF & WBA belts. Hopefully in Aus.

Win that & there could be some monster fights in store.

Great result only thing that wouldve been better wouldve been to see Mundine crashing to the deck hard after some serious pain being layed on him.

Agree won every round. But if he can't knock over Choc than there has to be questions asked about his power.

The big pay day for him after the Sturm/Soliman fight should be with Kid Chocolate in a unifaction bout. That would be a fight worth watching.

Yeah he lacks a killer punch, but with his speed, lightning jab, fitness and defence he will be a handful for anyone.

After Sturm, does Martinez fit in anywhere Scooper?

He might, Martinez has a fight with Martin Murray in Buenos Aires in April. After that maybe. But there is a lot of talk of a rematch with Julio César Chávez Carrasco.

Pretty glowing endoresement of Geale from Dan Rafael, who is the best boxing journo in the world. Talk of a fight with Matthew Macklin.

My Dad's cousin, and a lovely man. Billy was a brawler rather than a stylist, and fought when boxing was controlled by gangsters and SP bookies, dunno how much has changed, but it was a tough time, and he was a tough bloke

Billy is the one punching

Mundine copped an absolute flogging from Joshua Clottey, he lost on points after being sat on his arse 5 times!!
I wonder if he will claim he won the fight just like he did in his last fight against Geale who gave him a boxing lesson.
One of the funnist things i've seen in boxing was a Thai boxer who tried jumping the ropes while entering the ring
and ending flat on his face. During the fight he got decked, and then starting doing push ups while the ref was counting him out,
