Geale: Golovkin Has Immense Power, Will Be Tough to Beat

by David P. Greisman

The previous time Daniel Geale had lost, he’d been half a second away from putting Darren Barker for the count — and one point on one judge’s scorecard away from a decision victory.

The disappointment he felt after his July 26 loss to Gennady Golovkin via third-round technical knockout was different.

“He’s got immense power. He caught me with a good shot,” Geale said at the post-fight press conference. “I’m obviously very disappointed. We had a pretty good game plan going out there. Things were going to plan to an extent, but I guess you make one mistake and you pay the penalty. That’s what happened tonight. Unfortunately, you can’t win them all. I’ll definitely be back.”

Later, he added: “He caught me in the right place at the right time. My hands were down. I’d just caught him. I thought I was safe. But that’s what happens in boxing.”

Geale is a former world titleholder who has fought other 160-pounders such as Barker, Anthony Mundine and Felix Sturm. He sees Golovkin as a truly top middleweight.

“He definitely is a guy that’s going to be tough to beat,” Geale said. “I’m not sure there’s too many guys out there that are going to give him too much of a run. Good luck to the guys that can. I’d love to get my opportunity again one day.”

Golovkin not only has power...he can take a punch too. Geale hit him pretty flush and Golovkin didn't even flinch before answering with a KO punch. I'd love to see him in there with all the top 154-168 fighters.
