Geale's Promoter Fires Back at Anthony Mundine

IBF middleweight champion, Daniel "Real Deal" Geale (28-1, 15 KOs), and Anthony Mundine (44-4, 26 KOs) will square off in a highly anticipated rematch on January 30, 2013.  Both fighters hail from Australia, but one has stated his reasoning on why he's going to lose.

That fighter is Anthony Mundine, who recently came out and said that Geale's international promoter, Gary Shaw, and his relationship with the IBF is the reason he might lose this fight.

American Promoter Gary Shaw weighs in on Mundine's recent rants saying, "Anthony Mundine is coming up with every excuse on why he's going to lose his fight with Daniel.  This obviously shows me he is lacking confidence in his ability to beat Geale.  Just because I promote shows internationally, doesn't mean I'm always on the winning end of each fight.  This man is clearly delusional and I believe reality is starting to set in about Geale being a different fighter this time around.  He knows he's in for a long night."

In 2009, Geale suffered his first loss when Mundine defeated him by way of a razor close split decision. Since then, Geale has become a two-time world champion, winning twice on German soil against Sebastian Sylvester (34-5-1, 16 KOs) and Felix Sturm (36-3-2, 16 KOs). Geale has stepped up his game since he last fought Mundine, and Gary Shaw knows this.

"Mundine is in trouble," said Gary Shaw. "Daniel Geale is a much improved fighter since they last met and the world will see a major shift on how this fight is going to play out.  He can say all he wants about the judging in this fight, but what he needs to be worried about is getting off the canvas."

Mundine didn't win the first fight. He cheated the entire way through it and the referee didn't do a thing about the spoiled wraps on the gloves. Anyway, I think Geale should be taking on bigger names in the middleweight…
