Sylvester-Geale: Daniel Confident of Winning in Germany

Purse bids have been cancelled at t the 11th hour when heavyweight International boxing promoter Gary Shaw of Gary Shaw Production ns (USA), in conjunction with leading Australian promoter Grange Old School Boxing finalised a deal with Chris Meyer of Sauerland Promotions (Germany) which left all parties smiling.

As a result, the former IBO (International Boxing Organisation) Middleweight Championn and the current IBF (International Boxing Federation) No.1 rated mandatory challenger, Austra alian -Daniel Geale will fight the World Champion Sebastian Sylvester of Germany on May 7th at the Jahnsport Stadium in Neubrandenburg, Germany and attempt to place his name beside the likes of Marvin Haggler, Bernard Hopkins, Arthur Abraham and Roy Jones Junior as the 10th person to hold the prestigious IBF Middleweight World Champion.

Taking a World Title off a German champion on German soil is widely regarded as mission impossible and a feat which evaded several Australian boxers in the past including the talents of Danny Green and Anthony Mundine. It is often quipped within boxing circles that – “even a knockout in Germany does not guarantee a win”.

Victory in this contest would cement Daniel ‘The Real Deal’ Geale into the Australian history books  and elevate him into what is a small and elite group of men whom have left Germany with a World title.

Well aware of the obstacles ahead and which need to be overcome, Daniel commented
“After the fight with Roman Karmazin I knew it was then only a matter of time. I have been in training constantly and I’ve felt such a growth and development in my boxing and am in the best shape of my life.”

“With seven (7) weeks to go my trainer Graham Shaw will step up preparations to have me peaking in condition and ultimately, relieve Sylvester of his belt and bring it home to Australia”.

“Sylvester is a great champion with multiple defences to his credit, but this is my time and I won’t be denied”

“As the defending champion, I expect Sylvester to be at the top of his game, but again, this is my time and I’ve been preparing mentally for this since November last year after I beat the former champion Roman Karmazin to earn the right as the mandatory challenger. It’s taken 20 years, 190+ combined Amateur and Professional fights (26 of those as a professional).”

“I’ve earned a Commonwealth Games Gold Medal in that time and I’m very proud of that fact, but nothing will surpass winning a world title. It’s been a long, demanding road to get here and whilst I go in as the challenger, I do intend to leave as the champion”.

Good luck to Geale, but I just can't see him winning a decision in Germany against Sylvester. Sylvester is the kind of guy who would be a fringe contender in another era when there weren't seven middleweight "champions," but he…

[QUOTE=Devils Advocate;10273300]Manny Pacquiao vs Sebastian Sylvester would be a huge. Sylvester is only 5'7'' inches and it would be Pacquiaos 8th world titles in 8 divisions.[/QUOTE] Wake up Pacquio in the middle of the night and he wins against that…

I think Geale will win, unless the judges in Germany rob him.

real good match up, (just noticed 5 stars in boxrec) I want Geale to dominate or KO Sylvester otherwise he shouldnt challenge him, it would be just a waste of time in Germany. Sylvester kinda impressed me with his shutout…
