Geale Aims To Win Convincingly Against Golovkin

by Edward Chaykovsky

Former two-time middleweight champion Daniel Geale (30-2, 16Kos) has felt the sting of being on the losing end of a close decision on two occasions in his career. While Geale believes he was the obvious winner in both defeats, he doesn't want to take any chances with the scoring of his upcoming fight against WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs).

The HBO televised fight is scheduled for July 26th at New York's Madison Square Garden.

The last time Geale came to America, last August, he lost a close split decision and his IBF title to British fighter Darren Barker.

"The Barker fight was frustrating – knocking him down in the 6th and not getting the decision, but you have to take it on the chin and come back from that.  I didn’t dwell on it too long.  I got back in the gym and now I am on a huge show again fighting for a world title.  I am coming over to the US trying to turn it around to get on the winning side of things.  This next fight with Gennady is at a huge venue, Madison Square Garden and it is for titles, couldn’t be any more than I want," Geale said.

Against Golovkin, he admittedly needs to be more impressive and more convincing to defeat the heavy favorite on the cards.

"It’s always tricky in close fights.  You want to be as convincing as possible for decisions to go your way and sometimes they don’t.  That makes you who you are.  Those close losses, although they were disappointing, they did push me on to train harder and want to achieve more.  I didn’t feel as if I was beaten in either of those two fights, so it just motivated me to train harder.  There is always going to be bad decisions in boxing – you can’t let that affect you in any way.  You just have to go out and do your job to the best of your ability," Geale said.

Kudos to both fighters for taking this fight. I've been Golovkin's harshest critic for his mediocre competition, but if he beats Geale impressively then he's the real deal. Quillin will duck the winner. Cotto, though he is the real world…
