Amateur career

Other than winning the 2002 2002 Commonwealth Games at welterweight, Geale also represented his native country at the 2000 Summer Olympics. He lost in the first round to Italy's Leonard Bundu.[1]

Pro career

Geale turned pro in 2004, knocking out Danny Bellert in the third round. He then went on to build a record of 17 bouts for 17 wins with 12 KO's. On 14 December, Geale fought for the IBO Middleweight Championship of the world against another undefeated Australian, Daniel Dawson, who was 29-0-0 with 20 KO's coming into the fight. Geale outclassed Dawson over 12 rounds to win the IBO Middlewight title with the judges scoring the bout 120-110, 120-110 and 119-109.

In June 2008, Geale defended his IBO Middleweight Championship with another 12 round unanimous decision over Geard Ajetovic. In December 2008, Geale faced Daniel McKinnon in a non title bout. Geale was down in the 8th, McKinnon was down in the 4th, 6th & twice in the 8th, Geale won a unanimous decision with judges scoring the bout 100-87, 100-87, 100-88.

In March 2009 Geale defeated Ian MacKillop with a first round knockout but in May of that year he lost his next fight in a split decision to former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine to lose his IBO middleweight title.

In May 2011, Geale defeated Sebastian Sylvester in Germany by split decision (scores of 118-110, 118-112, 110-118) to become the new IBF middleweight world champion.
