 Sydney,  Australia  (Sports Network) -  Daniel Geale successfully defended his
 IBF  middleweight  title with  a  unanimous  decision over  fellow  Australian
 Anthony  Mundine on  Wednesday, avenging  the  only loss  of his  professional
 career in the process.
 
 Geale  (29-1), who dropped  a split decision to Mundine (44-5) in May of 2009,
 was  the clear-cut  winner on the scorecards in the rematch. Two judges scored
 the fight 117-111 in Geale's favor, with the other giving the reigning champ a

 The  31-year-old Geale  made his fourth title defense since capturing the belt
 with a split decision over German Sebastian Sylvester in May of 2011.
