Geale: If Big Shots Land, Golovkin Will Get Hurt

By Edward Chaykovsky

Australia's Daniel Geale (30-2, 16KOs) is not going to run away from a fight when he challenges WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs) on July 26th at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Geale, a two-time champion at the weight, is not overly impressed with Golovkin's level of opposition and he believes the champion's opponents have shown him way too much respect in the ring. Geale has been studying tapes and feels that Golovkin's defense has some holes, which he plans to exploit when they step in the ring.

"He's had a lot of amateur fighters and I will make it very difficult,'' Geale said to Fairfax Media. "Some of the guys do tend to stand in front of him or are a little bit worried about his power. Against a guy like Golovkin, you can't do that. You can't give him too much respect. You have to go out and fight your fight.

"He has shown he is susceptible to being hit. He drops his guard because he relies on that power. He knows if he hits you, he's going to hurt you. In the mean time, if he gets hit with big shots, it's going to hurt him and I do throw a lot of punches.''

[QUOTE=bklynboy;14733743]I hope, for Geale's sake, that he isn't going to try to trade with GGG. He should try to avoid big punches and win rounds. Geale is GGG's best opponent to date and we'll learn a lot about GGG in…

[QUOTE=Koba-Grozny;14737103]Like who? At MW Geale's about as good as it gets. Part of the problem for GGG is that there's isn't a MW 'star' for him to fight - Maravilla was the closest thing there was.[/QUOTE] Quillin of course, maybe…

[QUOTE=PurePugilist216;14734891]Can’t wait for the GGG hype to die down. I just hope Geale has enough stamina to fight 12 rounds. If he does, this then this is a winnable fight.[/QUOTE] I feel your pain... Sad that it's going to last…
