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

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.

Anyone that even brings up PEDs......

.....and Golovkin in the same sentence like that poosy Fraud would do can sit in the garage with the door closed and run the car with a hose on the tail pipe. A fine, potentially unbeatable warrior. Hard work and God given talent pays off.

u can get strong without steroids. ggg doesnt look like hes on roids. he has just got a ridiculously strong core from doing strongman training, which i guess a lot of the guys - even at the top level - don't do. Geale definately doesn't look like he is particularly strong.
