The International Boxing Organisation has ordered Anthony Mundine to fight Daniel Geale again or he will be stripped of his world middleweight title.
That is despite Geale’s appeal against the split points result of May’s title fight in Brisbane being dismissed.
Only two of the three independent judges who re-scored the bout deemed the Tasmanian had won and the result had to be unanimous for the appeal to be upheld.
Because of the close result, the IBO has made Geale the mandatory challenger for Mundine’s belt and ordered the fight take place by February next year.
