Daniel Geale To Be Stripped if He Doesn't Face Golovkin

By Miguel Rivera

The World Boxing Association is planning to strip Daniel Geale (28-1, 15KOs) of the middleweight "super title" - if he moves forward with a planned rematch against Anthony Mundine in early 2013. Last month in Germany, Geale won a twelve round split decision over Felix Sturm to unify the IBF/WBA titles. The WBA had ordered the winner to fight "regular" champion Gennady Golovkin (24-0, 21KOs) next.

Golovkin has been waiting for a shot at the full title since at least 2010. A rematch with Mundine presents a lot more money for Geale and also gives him the opportunity to avenge his only career loss. If the rematch goes forward [and no deal is worked with Golovkin], then only Geale's IBF title will be at stake and Golovkin will be the full champion at the weight.

Make it happen! This is how we find out who the real deal is. Sergio wont be around too much longer, and this could give us some answers about who will take his throne when the time comes.
