Daniel Geale’s IBF middleweight boxing world title defence against fellow Australian Anthony Mundine will take place on January 30.
As revealed on thewest.com.au, Sydney will host the fight, at the city's Entertainment Centre.The two have already met once before, with Mundine inflicting Geale’s only loss as a professional, by winning a points decision back in 2009.
Geale will be making the fourth defence of the title he won from Germany’s Sebastian Sylvester last year.The IBF will be the only belt on the line as Geale was recently stripped of his WBA title for opting to fight Mundine instead of his mandatory opponent.
“I made my pro debut and won my first world title here, it’s a special place for me,” Mundine said.Former amateur World Championship quarter-finalist Damien Hooper will make his pro debut on the card, as also indicated on thewest.com.au last week.
