You thought Sturm beat Geale by a round or 2 MTB??? You must have been watching a different fight to me. I had Geale winning 8 rounds to 4.

I like Geale, and have rooted for him every time I’ve seen him fight. However, I thought sturm beat him by a round or 2., I can’t see him beating barker.

Dont b surprised if Geale is the king at middlweight in the future. I no it’s a long shot but he is so orkward and throws punchers from diff angles…he’s a handfull. I’d love 2 c him v Golovkin

It’s refreshing to see a foreign champion defend abroad rather than keep the belt hostage in their native land. Kudos.

On this photo he looks a little like Sven Ottke. :-)

Unlikely the winner will fight the winner of Golovkin-Macklin next as Felix Sturm has positioned himself for an IBF eliminator in a couple of weeks time. I’m pretty sure Sturm will win that an the IBF will demand the winner of Geale-Barker make a mandatory defence against Sturm (assuming he wins). Would be a good payday for either Geale or Barker as Sturm has a big fan base in Germany and the money the German TV stations would put up would be good.

I just hope the winner fights Golovkin/Macklin!

I’ve just watched this Darren Barker on youtube, he seems to be a decent fighter but hasn’t really had a great deal of good work in the ring since his defeat at the hands of Martinez. Some of the comments I have read from the the UK fans & media about Barker bringing home the title appear to be wishful thinking. Geale has had a lot more meaningful & tough fights recently and he is getting better each time around so I think the UK fans might be just a little surprised with just how good Geale is.

Yeah Yeah

Daniel Geale is a very humble champion. He is also very under rated. He is a very fit fighter who outworks his opponents and has just enough pop to keep the ‘come forward brawlers’ honest. Barker will be a good test but Geale should come out with a ‘W’.
