Mundine’s post-fight punch stats: 219 to Geale’s 112

Phil Jay 01/02/2013

Former world champion Anthony Mundine has sensationally claimed that he outlanded IBF middleweight title holder Daniel Geale in their clash earlier this week, despite being comprehensively beaten in Australia.

Mundine, 37, looked sluggish and shot-shy as he laboured to a unanimous points loss at the Entertainment Centre in Sydney, according my book and lost by a wider margin than the 117-111 [2], 116-112 scorecards suggested.

‘The Man’ was adamant he won that fight in the aftermath as he celebrated and proclaimed to cameras in the ring – and has been vocal in damning the judges since losing out on another world title.

The vast majority, as far as I am aware, see the fight the same way I did and how he could come up with almost 2-1 punch stats in a recent post on his Twitter account is beyond me.

“Just comes out. Out land 219 punches to Geale’s 112, told you so – still the man!” he stated.

I would love to have those confirmed by an official source as I scored the contest an almost shut-out 119-109 to Geale and struggled to even give the outspoken Mundine the fourth round of a one-sided bout.
