Daniel Geale Will Face Mandatory Osumanu Adama Next

IBF middleweight champion Daniel "Real Deal" Geale (26-1, 15KOs) will hold his first mandatory title fight in Tasmania on February 29th, six months after his successful bout in Hobart. Geale defeated Nigerian-born American Eromosele "Bad Boy" Albert in front of 5000 parochial fans at the Derwent Entertainment Centre in August to retain the belt he claimed by downing Sebastian Sylvester in Germany in May.

He will now face Osumanu Adama, who holds an impressive 20-2 record, early next year. The much-anticipated fight will take place at the Silverdome in Launceston or back at the DEC. Adama, who hails from Ghana, defeated Roman Karmazin in a title eliminator with a ninth-round knockout in October. He is a former IBO world titleholder and will prove to be Geale's toughest opponent.

The undercard will also feature Kali Meehan, Jamie Pittman and local Steve Maxwell.

Geale is just going to do the same thing Pirog is doing. he'll stay in his home country and fight "mandatory" bums. Pirog and Geale just took a page from the Felix Sturm book. don't expect either guy to leave…

This is disappointing, I wanted to see Geale-Pirog.

Really too bad there are a million fighters with middleweight "titles" and nobody fights each other, so all the champions "defend" against B-level opponents. Instead of Geale-Pirog, we get second-rate mandatories from both and big talents like Golovkin fighting nobodies…

Osumanu Adama is a solid fighter. This will be a good fight.

[QUOTE=DoktorSleepless;11585426]Premium cable isn't interested in Pirog. Too foreign. Doesn't speak English or Spanish so no demand. He should fight on Solo Boxeo, FNF, or in that new NBC Sports Network show coming up even if it means making less money…
