Nathan you are entitled to disagree with me bud, but i have to say, i disagree with you

As the fight is in the US and the fighters are from Aus and UK no one can blame a robbery on a home town advantage.
MTB King.. sorry I would have to disagree, Barker and Geale are close skill wise, Geale is quicker, a better counter puncher and his work rate is much higher. I expect Barker to gas like he did against Martinez and get busted up in the last few rounds.
Programme.. I like Barker and if he beats the champ the yes he deserves to be champ but until he does he deserves only a shot at it.

Barker tough but Geale is a level above, very good skills, solid chin, lacks KO power but makes up for it with his unmatched work rate, and stamina. No one in the division works harder than he does. He is nearly unbeatable in rounds 9 – 12 as he has the stamina to keep up the work rate where most are tiring and needing a KO to win ( that can still and may happen ) Geale by UD

Never mind, that was a dumb question.

Who is on the undercard?

Nobody wants to get into England Bruce.

That is why titles really don’t mean so much. It is the championship belt you want.

This is going to be very close good fight, just hoping Darren’s new found attacking policy comes to the fore. Nothing against Geale but Darren does deserve to be a world champ.

Good fight, I’m going with Barker.

Both guys are underrated,and have very good skills.This will make for a great fight and be abit overlooked by alot of people overall.My pick is Geale on a dec. or a very late stoppage…should be good.

Barker is more skilled in every area, but the workrate is with Geale. Darren has to make sure Daniels work is not effective

Sounds like a lot of Englishman making comments here and like Darren Barker they seem to be under estimating Daniel Geale’s abilities and I like that. Barker is talking up his loss to Martinez, a stoppage loss. Geale’s only loss was a very close disputed points decision in which he just avenged in his last fight. I think Geale has had more quality opposition than Barker in the last couple of years and those two sacrificial lambs he fought since his loss to Martinez didn’t give him the quality of work needed to prepare him for Geale. I have watched both men and I give Geale the edge in skills, speed, work rate & better opposition. I give Barker the edge in power. I see Geale winning UD or late round stoppage as Geale just keeps going and getting stronger as the fight goes on.

geale quit telling me slow down

it would be good to see one of the good guys in BARKER winning a title. He can then make good money matching with Murray and possibly Macklin if he can get back in the mix!

Nothing against Geale. I don’t think he’s outstnding at anything in particular and I would rather watch Darren than Daniel!

mr gav

I see barker taking this or getting slightly robbed on score cards. But real 50/50 fight. And some brit has to win a world title over seas this year

Great match up this one. I think its pretty 50/’50.

TJ agreed, Barker can win this, Geale has nothing special except high workrate.

Hey, That’s my Bike!!!

No10Point – Quite simply if Geale wins he will go after what is rightfully his, the WBA belt and take on GGG.

Posted August 13, 2013 4:29 am 


Problem here is WHERE do they go after this?
If it isn’t a lopsided win for either then I will assume a rematch. Less Martinez’s camp takes a bite to keep him active.

Hey, That’s my Bike!!!

I can’t help but like both these guys. Very respectful of each other and confident in their own abilities. I know more about Geale than Barker and I love his work rate, stamina and angles, so I’m going for a Geale win by UD.
