Geale: 90% Certain I'll Face Dmitry Pirog in December!
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Australian boxing world champion Daniel Geale is set to announce the biggest fight of his career, a Las Vegas title bout on New Year's Eve for a half-a-million-dollar purse. Geale says he is "90%" certain his next bout will be a unification battle with WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog of Russia.

The Tasmanian, who holds the IBF middleweight crown, told Hobart's Mercury his management was close to securing the prestigious date.

"We have spoken before but today it seemed as though things were starting to move along and things are happening," he said. "It is a bit exciting.

"(It's) nearing 90%, the way my management are speaking about it. They asked me straight 'What do you reckon?' and I said 'Let's do it'."

Pirog boasts an imposing 19-0 record with 15 wins by knockout, while Geale's record is 26-1. Geale could have earned $1 million in the US in his first world title defence but famously passed it up to stage the event in Hobart in August.

I'm glad this fight is happening. Martinez could have a meaningless fight with Pirog on Februrary. Or he could have a meaningful fight against unified champ sometime later in the year.

Pulse is accelerating! Great matchup, top location, Showtime on board and unification. Now there's no excuse for DiBella afterwards. Looking forward to New Year's Eve! War Pirog, show the sweet science!!

ill buy this one for sure...good undercard would be nice!

Good fight for both of them. Dan Rafael said said it'll show up on Showtime with Dzinziruk on the undercard. Showtime is also considering a Cloud and Bundrage doubleheader though.
