People want The Man knocked out - Geale

22nd May 2009, 12:45 WST
 
By his own admission, not many people recognise world boxing champion Daniel Geale on the street.

But those who do pretty much say the same thing.

“Just about everybody that I meet says ‘when you knock Anthony Mundine out, make sure you pick him back up and knock him out again’,” Geale laughed.

“I get a lot of that.

“It’s good to know that I have a lot of support out there - it gives me confidence.”

The quietly spoken Tasmanian is more comfortable letting his fists do the talking ahead of defending his IBO middleweight world title against Mundine in Brisbane on Wednesday night.

He may have little choice anyway.

It is unlikely he would get a word in edgewise with “The Man“, also in Brisbane to complete his preparation.

But the Sydney-based Geale, 28, still managed to deliver an early blow on Friday, questioning the wisdom of Mundine moving down a division to middleweight.

“He is coming down from super middleweight - he hasn’t shown a lot of strength at that weight yet,” Geale said.

“That’s something I am going to test out.”

The world title fight will be only Mundine’s second outing as a middleweight.

“It remains to be seen if it brings his power down,” Geale said.

“But he doesn’t seem to be punching as hard as he used to.

“Dropping down to middleweight is a tough thing to do.

“I have dropped weight over my life, and it’s not easy - and it’s a lot harder when you are older.

“I was a little bit surprised by that (Mundine moving down a division).”

Geale is one of Mundine’s toughest prospects - and most underrated.

He had 160 amateur bouts - including a 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games gold medal - and he is unbeaten as a professional (21-0, including 13 knockouts).

But few would recognise him outside Australian boxing circles.

That may all change after Wednesday night.

“I’m glad to be under the radar,” Geale said.

“But this is a massive opportunity for me.

“He (Mundine) used to not really fight people who he thought were going to give him a tough fight.

“He thinks it is going to be easy - it is definitely not going to be an easy fight.”

Geale seemed unperturbed by the hoopla surrounding the fight, especially the hysteria caused by rugby convert Sonny Bill Williams fighting on the undercard as a favour for good mate Mundine.

Geale described the Mundine-SBW circus as “a lot of noise”.

“The results will show,” Geale said ominously.

“He (Mundine) says some stuff that a lot of people don’t like which is probably the reason why a lot of people come to the fight to see him get knocked out.”

Surely that was predicatble, he's hopless and not in the top 200 in the world

You have to doubt whether this country will ever produce a contender in the heavyweight division.
Along with the Sooceroos winning the world cup, a heavyweight champion is the sporting success i would love to see the most. Doubt ill ever get to see either......... :/

MIKE Tyson's four-year-old daughter is in a critical condition after accidentally strangling herself in a freak treadmill accident at home, reports say.

Phoenix Police Sgt Andy Hill said the "tragic accident" happened at Tyson's home when the girl's brother, 7, found her on a treadmill with her neck on a cable attached to the exercise machine.

The boy told the girl's mother, who had been cleaning in a separate room. The mother took the girl off the cable, called emegency and tried to revive her.

Paramedics and firefighters performed CPR on the girl as they rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she is now in "extremely critical condition" and on life support, Hill said.

Hill said Tyson was out of town but returned to Phoenix when he found out.

The former world boxing champion could not immediately be reached for comment.

Calls to three of his representatives were either not returned or went unanswered.

KNXV-TV reported Tyson arrived at St Joseph's Hospital in a taxi and made no comment as he hurried to the child's bedside.

Iron Mike Tyson's daughter 4 years old is on life support after getting tangled somehow in a cord of a walking machine  :what:

Retired boxer Mike Tyson's daughter on life support

May 26, 2009 12:00am

FORMER heavyweight champion Mike Tyson's 4-year-old daughter is on life support after she was found with her neck on a treadmill cable.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Andy Hill said the "tragic accident" happened at a Phoenix home when the girl's 7-year-old brother found her on a treadmill with her neck on a cable attached to the exercise machine early this morning.

The boy told the girl's mother, who had been cleaning in a separate room.

The mother took the girl off the cable, called 911 and tried to revive her.

Responding officers and firefighters performed CPR on the girl as they rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she is now in "extremely critical condition" and on life support, Sgt Hill said.

"Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there's a cord that hangs under the console - it's kind of a loop," Sgt Hill said.

"Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it."

Sgt Hill said Tyson was in Las Vegas when the accident occurred but flew to Phoenix immediately after learning of the accident.

Tyson could not immediately be reached for comment. Calls to three of his representatives were either not returned or went unanswered.

Sgt Hill said everything in the investigation pointed to the incident being an accident.

The four-year-old daughter of former boxing champion Mike Tyson is on life support after she was found choking on a cord which had been hanging from a treadmill.

Exodus Tyson was playing near the exercise equipment in the family home in Pheonix, Arizona, when she accidentally got tangled in a rope, or cable, on Monday morning.

Police said her seven-year-old brother, who was playing in another room, found Exodus with the cable around her neck and immediately raised the alarm with their mother, who had been cleaning elsewhere in the house.

"Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there's a cord that hangs under the console — it's kind of a loop," police Sergeant Andy Hill told Fox news. "Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it."

Former heavyweight world champion Mike Tyson's four-year-old daughter has died, a day after accidentally catching her neck in a cord on a treadmill at her home, police said.

“I was just advised by investigators that Exodus Tyson was pronounced deceased at 11:45 am today at the hospital,'' Phoenix police spokesman Andy Hill said. “Our sympathies go out to the family.''

Exodus Tyson had been hospitalized on life support since Monday, when she was found with her neck wrapped in the cable of the exercise machine by her seven-year-old brother.

The boy summoned his mother from another room, and the 34-year-old woman freed the girl, called an ambulance and tried to revive her.

Tyson, who doesn't live in the Phoenix house, arrived Monday afternoon from Las Vegas and was filmed by television news cameras entering the hospital.

Hill said Monday that the police investigation of the scene indicated a “tragic accident.''

“Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there's a cord that hangs under the console - it's kind of a loop,'' Hill said.

“Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it.''

New York public relations firm 42West had issued a statement Monday on the family's behalf, thanking the public for its support but asking for privacy.

Tyson had been in the news this month with the US release of the film “Tyson'', a documentary directed by James Toback that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year.

It offers an engrossing portrayal of the turbulent life of Tyson, from his humble beginnings on the mean streets of Brooklyn to his phenomenal rise as the youngest heavyweight world champion in history, through his epic fall marked by addiction, humiliation in the ring and a rape conviction.
