Mundine: I landed way more than Geale, let’s do number three!

Phil Jay 07/02/2013

Former world champion Anthony Mundine has issued a plea for a third fight with IBF middleweight title holder Daniel Geale after his comprehensive loss to ‘Real Deal’ earlier this month.

The 37 year-old, who has held word titles at two different weight classes, looked sluggish and out of his depth in his second fight with Geale after beating him controversially four years prior, but is adamant he can be victorious if a rubber match is agreed.

“Listen, I know and he knows he lost but I’m fighting the system,” said Mundine. “Watch the fight on mute and do the stats yourself. I landed way more.

“You are about to feel the rath of a legend come fight number three. They wont give it to me when I out-boxed him and out-foxed him so it’s kill or be killed come number three.

“That’s the last I will talk bout it so let them take it like that. I’m always ready and always willing and I’ll put a end to this come number three.”

Geale, 31, is now set to begin negotiations for a clash with mandatory Sam Soliman after the veteran dispatched Felix Sturm in an eliminator – meaning Mundine may face a wait to be given the chance to avenge his loss.
