Australia’s Daniel Geale (21-1, 13 KOs) will return to ring action on October 21st when he will clash with Roberto Reuqeu (30-3, 19 KOs) of Argentina over twelve rounds with the IBF Pan Pacific title up for grabs at the Silverstone Complex, Launceston, Tasmania that will be televised on Fox Main Event Television. Geale lost a disputed decision to Anthony Mundine when the general opinion was that Geale had outscored the former WBA super middleweight champion. Geale’s opponent, Roberto Reuque, has been in the ring with several world class middleweights including Renan St Juste in 2009, Sebastain Lujan in 2006 and Walter Mathysse in 2005. He has a very good KO percentage with 19 KOs in 33 fights.
Geale’s manager Bill Treacy said.”Reuque will be a good test for Daniel after his fight with Mundine. We tried to get world rated middleweights Billy Lyell and Daniel Edouard but they declined substantial offers to come to Australia to fight Daniel. We are confident Geale will defeat Reuque but we are not taking him lightly. He has a good record and he has knockout power. Graham Shaw has Geale in great shape and I am sure he will be impressive on October 21″.
On the undercard, Anthony Mundine (36-3, 23 KOs) will also be in action against Alejandro Falliga (17-5, 6 KOs) of Argentina. Falliga lost a close points decision to Rafael Pintos in 2008. Pintos went the distance against Mundine in 2008 dropping a decision over twelve.
Also in action world class junior middleweight Robert Medley (26-2, 17 KOs) and light heavyweight Daniel Baff (11-1) who scored a knockout on the Green vs Dominguez bout in Biloxi, Missisippipi, USA. Promoter Bill Teacy.
