K2's Loeffler Ready To Make Geale-Golovkin Unification

By Rick Reeno

Tom Loeffler, the managing director of K2 Promotions, is ready to match his boxer, IBO/WBA "regular" champion Gennady Golovkin (24-0, 21KOs), against the IBF/WBA "super" champion Daniel Geale (28-1, 15KOs).

Both fighters pulled off spectacular victories on Saturday. Geale shocked the experts by winning a twelve round split decision over German superstar Felix Sturm in Oberhausen. Later that day in Verona, New York - Golovkin made his American debut and punished Grzegorz Proksa for five rounds.

A few days ago, the WBA ordered the winner of Sturm-Geale to face the winner of Golovkin-Proksa by early December.

HBO was very impressed by Golovkin's performance and the network wants to have him back as soon as possible. K2 is looking to secure a December date for Golovkin - in either Texas, Los Angeles or New York.

"The WBA issued that resolution on Thursday, that the winner of Golovkin-Proksa is the mandatory for Sturm and Geale. We're hoping now that Geale will defend the WBA title instead of vacating the title," Loeffler told BoxingScene.com.

For years, Sturm has avoided a fight with Golovkin. Loeffler has a lot more confidence in Geale stepping up to the plate.

"That's one obstacle out of the way as far as Sturm always being recognized as the super champion. That's one problem we had. Gennady couldn't unify the [WBA] title because Sturm was super champion, but we have more faith in Geale. He had a great performance in Germany, winning the title - and he actually had two great performances in Germany - the one against [Sebastian] Sylvester and then he came back and beat Sturm. We feel that Geale has a lot of heart and a lot of confidence in his abilities," Loeffler said.

Geale's American promoter, Gary Shaw, told BoxingScene on Saturday that he was open to making a Geale-Golovkin unification.

The Middleweight division is loaded. I wanna see Geale/GGG and winner fights winner of Serg/Jr. which I personally think will be Sergio. I love the idea of GGG/Sergio.

[QUOTE=deanrw;12473892]I don't think some people here watched the Sturm fight yesterday. Geale looked very able. He was fast and cat like in the fight. Fought well on the backfoot and coming forward. He is no pushover. I still favor Golovkin…

This is the logical fight. Winner of this fights the winner of Martinez-Chavez. Well, the winner of Martinez-Chavez should fight Pirog and the winner of that fights the winner of Geale-Golovkin. Throw Quillen in there somewhere. There's a lot of…

[QUOTE=Garcia's Dad;12473463]It's gonna be interesting to see who steps up to the plate and is willing to face GGG after last night. He's just one of those fighters you just know other fighters don't want to touch.[/QUOTE] Because there's no…
