Daniel Geale’s IBF middleweight boxing world title defence against fellow Australian Anthony Mundine will take place on January 30 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre.

The two have already met once before, with Mundine inflicting Geale’s only loss as a professional, by winning a points decision back in 2009.

Geale will be making the fourth defence of the title he won from Germany’s Sebastian Sylvester last year.

The IBF will be the only belt on the line as Geale was recently stripped of his WBA title for opting to fight Mundine instead of his mandatory opponent.

‘‘This is the fight Australia wants to see and I’m thrilled it will take place in my home town of Sydney,’’ Geale said.

It will be Mundine’s eighth professional fight at the Sydney Entertainment centre.

‘‘I made my pro debut and won my first world title here, it’s a special place for me,’’ Mundine said.
