Shaw: Geale Must Start Fast, Engage Golovkin To Win
By Edward Chaykovsky
We could be in store for some early fireworks on Saturday night in New York's Madison Square Garden. Two-time middleweight champion Daniel Geale (30-2, 16KOs) has been advised by his trainer, Graham Shaw, to start fast and to engage WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs).
Geale will have to hit, and not get hit, to win. There have been questions about whether or not Golovkin's stamina, and punching power, will be able to last in a tough fight that enters the second half. Most of Golovkin's opponents have been broken down within the first six. Geale, and his trainer, are going to explore every question about Golovkin's level of talent.
"Daniel's come to win a belt, not just be another name on Gennady's list. There's a risk in every fight, Daniel is willing to fight twelve hard rounds. Daniel must engage Gennady to win. We're ready for anything, we need to win the first two rounds and start fast. Gennady's a big puncher, but Daniel typically doesn't get hit too often. He's tougher than people think," Shaw said.
I think this is just talk. Geale will try drag Gennady in deep waters.Comment by brian___ on 07-25-2014

Geale is a very live dog IMO. I think his style will cause Gennady some problems. I want this fight to go into the later rounds so we can really see what Gennady is made of.Comment by LA_2_Vegas on 07-24-2014
I agree with Shaw on this one - go out and try to win the first two rounds. Sounds like a good idea to me.Comment by RAV3N on 07-24-2014
As others have said Geale really needs to use lateral movement and make GGG miss. Coming in straight at GGG with all guns blazing is exactly what he shouldnt do.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (9)
