Daniel Geale Eager To Rematch Anthony Mundine Next

By Chris LaBate

IBF world middleweight champion Daniel Geale (25-1, 15KOs) would love to avenge the only blemish on his pro record. Geale lost a close split decision to Anthony Mundine (42-4, 25KOs) in 2009. Next Wednesday in Tasmania, Geale defends his title for the first time against Eromosele 'Bad Boy' Albert. He would be more than willing to face Mundine next.But getting a fight with Mundine won't be easy. The Australian star has moved down to junior middleweight and has a scheduled final WBA eliminator against Rigoberto Alvarez on September 21. If Mundine wins, he will challenge the regular champion Austin Trout. There's much bigger fights out there for us but if they are willing, which I don't believe they are that willing at this stage ... I'd love to be able to fight him and give people what they want to see, Geale told Sportal. He's campaigning at junior middleweight now so whether he does decide to come back up to middleweight just to get a payday I'm not sure. Since our first fight (in 2009) the offer has always been there, I've never backed down from that offer but he's the one that's always left it pretty much blank, they never have responded to us.
