Australian boxer Daniel Geale confident ahead of middleweight unification bout with Felix Sturm.

Australian boxer Daniel Geale admits he'll face one of the toughest tests of his career when he meets WBA middleweight super champion Felix Sturm, but says he couldn't be better prepared.

Geale, the IBF middleweight champion, will face Sturm in a unification boxing bout for the pair's titles on September1 in Germany, a fight being touted as one of the biggest in Australia's history since Jeff Fenech met Azumah Nelson in 1991.

Sturm is the favourite, having not lost a bout since 2006, but Geale is confident of his chances and said he's never been fitter after countless sparring sessions.

"The way things are going at the gym, I feel that Im as strong, Im as fast and my mental toughness is right up there as well," Geale told Fox Sports News on Wednesday.

"Im very hungry at the moment, Im hungrier than when I was before I left to win the title last year."

Geale won his IBF title in Germany in 2011 and is looking to repeat the dose, but is under no illusions as to the challenge facing him.

"Hes a very defensive, very skilled fighter," he said. "I'm confident I can return and show the people the belts I bring back."

[QUOTE=artfuL_]Spot on here, considering the winner will become a unified champ, hard not to think the WBA will not manufactor another trinket. lol, could not be more further than the truth. Seeing Sturm struggle immensely with the likes of Murray and Macklin defines his so called superior...

[QUOTE=JKidd2624]God I hope Geale beats the piss out of Sturm. He's gone to the robbery land before and pulled one out, lets all hope he does again. I bet even if Sturm loses, the WBA finds or creates a title for him to fight for next time out. The sanctioning fee money they get for his fights...

I'm praying Geale wins.

Felix Sturm is promoting this event himself. He won't lose unless he gets stopped. I'll be rooting for Geale, but let's be honest: the deck is stacked against him here.
