ANTHONY Mundine hardly worked up a sweat against an opponent who was simply fighting out of his class last night in Launceston.

Alejandro Gustavo Falliga came to Tasmania from Argentina with a dream. Instead he stepped out of the ring living a nightmare.

The bookies had Mundine at the unbackable odds of just $1.02 and the self-proclaimed "Man" rightly lived up to the billing.

By the end it was if the Argentine had run a marathon in reverse as Mundine chased him to all points of the ring - the South American totally spooked from the opening bell.

Mundine was simply too light on his feet and even quicker with his hands, landing blows at will as the crowd got dizzy watching his opponent floundering despite the constant urgings of his opponent's corner.

He'll awake this morning without a visible mark or bruise on his face or body to show for his rich endeavour.

Mundine was in cruise mode and in total control throughout.

The crowd rightly booed the visitor from a once-proud boxing nation. In the end Mundine's record will show another win on points, and sadly not much else.

The main support bout was billed as "Daniel Geale's Homecoming".

And the former centre-half back from the Northern Bombers club in the local footy league didn't disappoint the full house against Brazil's Samir Barbosa.

He got a thunderous welcome from his one-time home crowd as he controlled the fight from opening to close, even though referee Brian McMahon called a halt to proceedings 12 seconds short in the 12th.

The crowd wasn't bothered as the hometown boy went on to win a unanimous points decision to claim the vacant IBF Pan-Pacific middleweight belt after being out of the ring for six months after losing a controversial decision to Mundine back on May 27 in Brisbane.

"I came out wanting to win and win well, even though I didn't get the knockout I was looking for," Geale said.

"I pulled-up very, very good."

But Geale got what he came for - a rematch with Mundine, most likely to now be staged in April next year.

Geale was never in any danger as he showed on the scorecard with the three judges Gus Mercurio, Max Murphy and Trevor Christian all scoring the bout 120-108 in his favour.

He was in total control as he came at the Brazilian in waves, showing a variety of crisp, sharp punches, each a dagger to Brazilian's big heart.

The 28-year-old former Tasmanian who now calls Camden in south-west Sydney home, was not only slightly heavier, but had a distinct advantage in both height and reach over his gutsy Brazilian opponent.
