Geale: There Was Basically No Money in Golovkin Bout

Australia's Daniel Geale (28-1, 15KOs) has been stripped of his WBA world title because he has opted to fight Anthony Mundine in a rematch in January, and not the mandatory challenger Gennady Golovkin. Geale said questionable rules had made it almost impossible for him to hold two world titles at the same time.

The World Boxing Association has ruled Geale forfeited his super middleweight belt by not taking on the mandatory challenger Golvokin instead of Mundine. Geale still remains the IBF world champion.

He said despite the WBA loss, he did not regret his choice to put his other title on the line by taking on Mundine. He said the offer to fight Golovkin was peanuts and the event was small, at least when compared to a high-profile event against Mundine in Australia.

"There was the option of travelling to the US on a really small show and fighting Golvokin for basically no money at all or fighting with Mundine and keeping the IBF so I think we've made the right decision," Geale said.
