Wests Tigers member Geale fights for world title

Wests Tigers Member Daniel Geale will tonight put his IBF middleweight title on the line when he takes on Anthony Mundine at the Sydney Entertainment Centre.


Geale goes into tonights fight as favourite with an impressive record of 28 wins (15 by k/o) and just one loss, which was to Mundine in a controversial spilt decision back in 2009. Geale has held the IBF Middleweight belt since May 2010.


A proud Wests Tigers fan, Geale invited some of our players to a training session a few weeks ago and spoke of his excitement for the NRL season to start.


I'm definitely excited," said Geale. "With the guys they've got on paper it's going to be a very exciting season and I can't wait to get out to the games and watch.


"You've got such flashy play, Benji Marshall is awesome to watch and a lot of the other players are so strong.


"I love watching the Wests Tigers play, I love their style of play.


"It's definitely a great experience and to get out to the games as often as I do and support the guys, it's something that I really enjoy."


Wests Tigers forwards Keith Galloway, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Matt Groat and Shaun Spence watched on as Geale went through his paces at The Grange Old School Boxing club in Smeaton Grange.


Galloway said Geale has always had the respect of the Wests Tigers players.


Daniel has been one of the boys now for a few years. He is always welcome inside our dressing room, Galloway said.


He is a quality bloke who really loves Wests Tigers. I think he gets just as much excitement out of seeing us as much as we do of seeing him. We will always be in his corner.
