Mundine rejects Geale rematch

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

IBO middleweight champion Anthony Mundine has refused to give a rematch to IBF #8 Daniel Geale. Mundine scored a hotly disputed decision over Geale to win IBO title on May 27 at the Brisbane Entertainment Center, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Most boxing writers at ringside had Geale winning a clear decision. “We tried hard to make the rematch between Mundine and Geale happen but they were not interested,” said Bill Treacy who is the manager of Geale. “IBF middleweight champion Sebastian Sylvester is on our radar and hopefully we can get a shot at the world title within twelve months.”
