Former champion Anthony Mundine (44-4, 26 KOs) has dared WBA/IBF middleweight champ Daniel Geale (28-1, 15 KOs) to get his revenge. Geale's only loss as a pro, by way of split decision, came at the hands of Mundine in 2009. Mundine is trying to get rematch with Geale in Australia early next year. Mundine doesn't like the attention Geale has receieved as of late. Geale put his name on the map when he traveled to Germany to secure an upset win over hometown superstar Felix Sturm. wants Geale to defend both titles if they fight, rather than just his IBF belt, to ensure the winner becomes the unified middleweight champion of the world.
"I am sick of people jumping on the Geale bandwagon, I feel he is no better than he was when I first fought him," Mundine said to Daily Telegraph. "Even though I did beat him, my preparation and mindset for that fight wasn't 100%. But I took his belt that night, and I will take his belts again. The guy can't beat me, he will not beat me."
"Sometimes you need to lose to win, so that is something we will discuss with his people. He has the two belts (WBA and IBF) so he is in a more powerful position but he doesn't sell. He won two world titles and flew back and there were 10 people at the airport.
"As far as him being champion, I am a better all-round fighter, I am a better athlete. He is a volume puncher. He throws 20 shots and might land one or two, but he looks busy. I am precise, clean. I don't waste my shots. I am the only one to have hurt him numerous times. I dropped him last time, hurt him to the body and head, and I am more confident in my boxing now than I was back then."
