Geale’s Promoter on Fighting Golovkin, Martinez-Chavez

By Ryan Maquiñana

By the end of September, the composition of the middleweight division will have been redefined, as Daniel Geale became a unified titlist by defeating Felix Sturm over the weekend, while another beltholder, Gennady Golovkin, stopped top 10 contender Gregorsz Proksa hours later.

Geale’s promoter, Gary Shaw, was also impressed with the performance of Golovkin, who possesses the “regular” version of Geale’s WBA “super” title.

“[Golovkin] was a monster,” Shaw told BoxingScene.com.  “I know how good he is.  I tried to recruit him.”

Geale was no slouch in his own right, having dethroned his second titleholder on German soil last Saturday.  Shaw outlined his fighter’s options Tuesday.

“Daniel has a lot of opportunities,” Shaw said.  “The WBA ruled we had to fight [Golovkin] by December 3rd.  Maybe that’s unrealistic.  We don’t know what dates are available on the networks, so that’s hard to say.”

Of course, the biggest fight at 160 pounds occurs on 10 days from now, when universally recognized champion Sergio Martinez aims to reclaim his WBC belt against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

“I’ve getting calls for—let’s see what happens with Chavez and Martinez,” Shaw added.  “To me, that’s a much bigger fight for Daniel Geale than fighting Golovkin.  Pirog is still out there.  The 160-pound division is very, very strong right now.”

They should do a supersix with the middleweights. But after Martinez-Chavez it would be the super3.

Everyone is talking as if Geale is an easy victory for Chavez Sergio or GGG. When an argument can be made that he has least fought the better opposition as compared to Chavez and GGG.

Good to see middleweight finally heating up, the division has been a cesspit more or less going back to the 90's. In that period there have been guys and some big fights but the division as a whole was weak,…

[QUOTE=Freedom.;12483222]I just hope Gennady Golovkin doesn't have to fight a stiff next because all the good middleweights are afraid of him.[/QUOTE] if he can't fight a top ten next, he can probably get a notable name. Rubio/Baldo, Sergio Mora, etc.…
