Daniel Geale: Gennady Golovkin Fight Made Me Better

By Victor Salazar

Daniel Geale is coming to New York once again as an underdog. Saturday night he confronts the lineal WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto before a very pro Cotto crowd at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Last July, he came over and took on Gennady Golovkin and was stopped by the guy considered to be best middleweight in the world.

Unlike most of Golovkin’s opponents, Geale feels he came out from that fight a better fighter. It does help that he didn’t take as much punishment like other Golovkin opponents.

“I feel like I am better from that fight.” Geale told at his media day workout.  “I learned a lot from that fight, I didn’t get pounded hard, I got caught definitely. But I picked myself back up and I still have a lot left from that fight.

Golovkin will be ringside come Saturday night and  if Geale should win he would be the lineal Middleweight Champion along with the WBC Middleweight Champion. Golovkin has said he wants to unify the titles and is the mandatory to the WBC title, so a rematch wouldn’t be out the question.

“He’s a damaging fighter,” Geale said of Golovkin. “He’s very powerful, he’s not only damaging but you don’t see too many fighters that have the skills he has. I love another opportunity against him. There have been some talks but my main focus is Cotto.”
