Maybe something has been sorted out behind the scenes but it'll be stupid if he went to the trouble of taking hard fights abroad only to lose one or both of them for facing a joke like Mundine.
How is this not a great career move?

At this point Mundine is an easy beat. If Dan can't beat him now then he should just forget it anyway. He will be getting paid for this fight, build his profile a little, then go over there and take on Martinez.

What would have been a better career move? Fight another tough guy overseas for much less money and still risk all he has gained over the past couple of years.

Easy win for Geale. Good payday, still gets to go to the States afterwards.
