Geale beats Mundine to defend IBF title


SYDNEY (AP) - Daniel Geale defended his IBF middleweight title by beating Anthony Mundine by a unanimous points decision Wednesday.

Two judges scored the bout 117-111 in Geale's favor, while the third judge had it 116-112.

The defending champion said he was disappointed not to knock out his opponent, but "I did enjoy punching him."

Geale established his dominance from the onset with the 37-year-old Mundine often pegged back throughout the 12 rounds.

It was Geale's fourth title defense.
