Geale Making The Rounds in NY as Golovkin Nears
Australian boxer Daniel Geale is counting down the days before he steps up at boxing's most hallowed venue, New York's Madison Square Garden.
The 33-year-old Tasmanian challenges WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, with the Kazakh knockout king a major hit with the home crowd.
Geale will be just the third Australian to fight in the main theatre at Madison Square Garden, and it's a dream come true for him.
But the Aussie also managed to take time out of training on Monday to visit another of the Big Apple's famed sporting venues when he met up with the Yankees ahead of their clash with the Cincinnati Reds at Yankee Stadium.
The classy fighter was given rare access to the club house, dugouts and field of play.
Geale will headline a card at Madison Square Garden when he takes on the most feared man in world boxing.
The undefeated Golovkin has the highest knockout record of any current world-title holder, with 26 in his 29 wins.
And the Kazakh has knocked out 16 straight opponents.
But former world champion Geale is hoping to make a home run for Launceston when he comes up against the big hitter.
