Daniel Geale became the first Australian boxer to unify two major titles in the same division after a win over Felix Sturm in Germany.
In what was was an absorbing contest between two accomplished technicians, Beale added Sturm's WBA middleweight Super title to his IBF crown with a 12-round split decision points win.

Tasmanian-born but Sydney-based Geale is the first Aussie-born boxer to unify two titles.
