Post-fight analysis

Gale takes commanding UD over Mundine

It was a one-sided affair between Australia's two top boxers as the reigning IBF Middleweight Champion Daniel Geale gained revenge over the man who inflicted upon him his only career defeat, Anthony Mundine.

Geale controlled the pace throughout the fight, and managed to steer clear of the majority of Mundine's spoiling tactics. The challenger frequently led with his head, launched at Geale with elbows and generally tried to make the fight as gritty as possible.

The champion, however, was rarely outside his comfort zone, but for fleeting moments in the third when he was backed against the ropes and the eighth when Mundine rallied to possibly draw the round.

Despite Mundine's apparent insistence that he'd won the contest, Geale's arm was raised, and the scorecards a picture of domination at 116 - 112, 117 - 111, 117 - 111 all in favour of Geale.

Pre-fight analysis

BoxNation heads down under for Geale v Mundine II

It's an all-Australian clash as we head to Sydney for IBF Middleweight Champion Daniel Geale's fourth world title defence against the 37-year-old 44 - 4 Anthony Mundine.

Mundine shocked Geale when he inflicted his only career defeat upon him in 2009 with a split decision to win the IBO Middleweight crown, and Geale is now eyeing revenge.

The Tasmanian fighter defended his title for a third time in his last outing, a gritty split decision win over Felix Sturm in the Koenig Pilsner Arena, Germany. BoxNation brought you the action live as the Australian unified the middleweight division and upset the odds by winning Sturm's WBA Super World title.

Mundine, himself, is a former three-time, two-weight World Champion. He first won the WBA World Super-Middleweight title in 2003 against Antwun Echols, before winning it for a second time with a 9th round KO of Sam Soliman. The hattrick was complete with his surprise 2009 win over Geale, taking the IBO Middleweight title in the process.

Now 37, Mundine, a New South Wales native, will look to secure a fourth career World title against the 31-year-old Tasmanian Geale.

International Heavyweight Contest

Kimbo recovers to take second round KO over Tilyard

It was a helter-skelter five mintues as two big heavyweights slugged it out in an entertaining bout won by former MMA fighter and Internet sensation Kimbo Slice.

Fighting outside the US for the first time, the now 7 - 0 (6) Slice was rocked in the opening round, but recovered in the second to fire a punishing blow into the kidney of Tilyard, which dehabilitated the Australian and left him unable to find his feet within the referee's 10 second count.
