Video: Daniel Geale Reflects on The Loss To Cotto

Bill "Two Scoops" Emes catches up with Daniel Geale, who discussed his knockout loss to Miguel Cotto.

Cotto retained his World Boxing Council middleweight world title with a crushing victory over Geale. Cotto knocked down Geale twice in the fourth round before referee Harvey Dock stopped the bout at 1:28 of the fourth.

Cotto dominated from the opening bell in front of a crowd of 12,100 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Cotto landed a devastating left hook early in the fourth and then finished off the challenger soon after with a series of body shots that sent the Aussie to the canvas for a second time. Geale got up but was obviously unable to continue and Dock called a halt.

The 34-year-old Cotto improved to 40-4 with 33 knockouts and the win now sets up a likely showdown with Mexico's Saul "Canelo" Alvarez possibly later this year.

Geale, 34, fell to 31-4 with 16 knockouts. The former world champion suffered his third defeat in his last five fights.
