Anthony Mundine beats Daniel Geale to claim IBO crown

May 27, 2009 11:00pm

ANTHONY Mundine has won his third world title after claiming Daniel Geale's IBO middleweight crown in Brisbane on Wednesday night.

Mundine (36-3 record) looked like having an early night after knocking Geale down early in the second of the scheduled 12 rounds.

But Sydney-based Tasmanian Geale recovered to hold his own against "The Man" and go the distance, only to lose by a split decision.

It was the first loss in Geale's 22-fight professional career.

Earlier, Sonny Bill monstered his rival in 1 minute 22 seconds on the undercard.
