Daniel Geale Back in Camp, Wants December Return

Daniel Geale wants to fight again in December, irrespective of whether he wins his appeal against his recent IBF boxing middleweight world title loss.

Geale resumed training on Thursday, less than three weeks after the bout - which he watched on Wednesday for the first time since his split decision points loss to Englishman Darren Barker in Atlantic City.

His management have lodged an appeal to the IBF, citing a number of grounds, including the scoring of the bout.

Ideally Geale is hoping for the appeal to be upheld and for the IBF to sanction a rematch with Barker in December.

If it's unsuccessful, Barker is expected to make a mandatory defence against German Felix Sturm.

"My goal would be to fight in December," Geale told AAP on Thursday.

"Either way if we get Barker, that would be unreal, to fight again so soon, but if it's not him, I'm happy to fight everybody else.

"I pulled up well from that fight and I'm still very hungry.

"I want to get back in there and make things right again."

Geale was adamant he did enough to win the fight after watching it.

Asked if he would have done anything differently, Geale said "I don't think so, in the heat of battle it is difficult to change things.

"It's easy to look back and say 'I could have done, I should have done', 'if...' sort of stuff.

"But it was a tough fight. Barker was always dangerous,

"I did feel in control most of the stages, but I also do know that if I ever do get that opportunity to fight him again, it's going to be a much different story.

"I think he knows that as well, so I won't be surprised if he doesn't want to fight me again."

The 32-year old Sydney-based Tasmanian had no doubts he could win another world title and that the loss to Barker was a temporary setback that would only fuel his ambitions.

"I still feel like I'm getting better," Geale said.

"I can still beat the top fighters in the world, I'm confident with anybody.

"It's not the first time that I've had frustrating things happen - decisions not going my way.

"I had it plenty of times in the amateurs and I had it in 2009 (in a points loss to Anthony Mundine) as well so all it does is make me hungrier."

Best of luck to him. He lost his title in a very close bout and is a classy operator. A bout between him & one of the British Middleweights would do great business in London.
