yeah, that sounds like a good plan. wasn't geale's team saying they were talking to hbo about setting up a date for him next year, or something along those lines? thought i heard him say that in a recent interview. but yeah, if golovkin's promoter is saying they're taking a "stay-busy" fight, then that means it'll most likely be a subpar opponent, not something that should be on hbo
