It appears all systems are go for the scheduled July 26 fight between middleweights Gennady Golovkin(29-0, 26KOs) and Daniel Geale (30-2, 16KOs).

Golovkin had been waiting for approval from the WBA for a voluntary defense, and the World Boxing Association announced on Tuesday that his application was approved. Golovkin was also given the status of "super champion" at 160-pounds, which means interim-champ Dmitry Chudinov may become the "regular" champion.

The fight will be televised by HBO Boxing from Madison Square Garden in New York City. Geale added that he and GGG indeed received official approval from the WBA.

Golovkin owed the WBA a mandatory defense against Jarrod Fletcher, but the sanctioning body allowed him to move forward with Geale, and now his new "super champion" status will allow him to sidestep Fletcher for the time being.

In Geale's lone appearance on HBO, he lost a close decision to Darren Barker.

The expected co-feature is a heavyweight scrap between Bryant Jennings and Mike Perez.

GGG is going to destroy Geale. It'll be like Macklin II

[QUOTE=turnedup]Will HBO carry this match on short notice tho?[/QUOTE] HBO has had that date saved for GGG for some time so it shouldn't be a problem.

Very good fight, this one. Geale should really give Golovkin a test.
