Soliman: Geale Can Definitely Outbox, Beat Golovkin

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF middleweight champion Sam Soliman will be an interested party in the upcoming HBO televised fight between WBA/IBO middleweight king Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs) and former two-time champion Daniel Geale (30-2, 16KOs), which takes place on July 26th at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Soliman says if Geale continues to move, and doesn't do anything careless in the ring to put himself in harm's way by standing in front of Golovkin, he can box his way to victory. Soliman, fresh from his big decision victory over Felix Sturm, is hoping to face the Golovkin-Geale winner next. If Geale gets the upset, a unification with Soliman would be a huge fight for Australian boxing.

"If we see the fast moving Geale and the hard punching Geale at his best then he can definitely win the fight,’’ said Soliman to News Unlimited. "No fighter is invincible and Geale can be a brilliant boxer when he’s on top of his game. He can’t get careless because with Golovkin one punch and it’s lights out.

"Geale has to keep moving and not let Golovkin get a big shot at him. I think the most likely result is that Golovkin will win a decision. It’s Golovkin’s promotion and he’s fighting in his adopted hometown. But Geale does have the skills to turn it around.’’

Geale doesn't have a fast bike. Also it's not in his nature. He wants to throw. He doesn't move around as much as Adama or Rosado. Overall he's sharper than Adama. But Adama has a better jab. Geale not a…

I'm in agreement with Soliman that he has the right pace and style for the task, but can he be durable enough...GGG likes to bomb that liver

Dude you need to start backing up your other accent sharing contender in Joseph Parker, granted he's a Kiwi but it's as close as it gets! Geale will be in survival mode after he tastes his real punch in that…
