Tasmanian boxer Daniel Geale will defend his International Boxing Federation world middleweight title in his home state, his manager says.

The Launceston-born fighter claimed the title with a win over German Sebastian Sylvester last month, and together with manager Bill Treacy has been drumming up support for a bout in his home state.

Treacy said Geale would take on American Eromosele Albert somewhere in Tasmania on August 31.

"The fight is 100 per cent going to be in Tasmania, where it is between Launceston and Hobart will depend on a bit of sponsorship," Treacy told the Hobart Mercury on Tuesday.

"I'll say over the next few days for sure."

The Tasmanian government said last week it would not be underwriting the bout.

[QUOTE=vick_ramalot]Maravilla would shatter that wimp into a million pieces within one or two rounds[/QUOTE] Very good chance of that happening, and Martinez would also pick up another belt in the division so it seems like a good matchup. Lou will no doubt jump on the opportunity, shall it arise.
