zbik is a quality opponent now ?
another worthless paper champion who was coming of a loss ..
let's compare their last 5 opponents :
kassim ouma >Roman Karmazin
Grzegorz Proksa > Sebastian Sylvester
Nilson Tapia ( had a close fight with Austin Trout) > Eromosele Albert
Lajuan Simon > Osumanu Adama
japanese guy < felix sturm
nothing to write home about
the only thing better on geale's resume is the sturm win, a guy who relentlessly ducked GGG , and got spanked numerous times during his reign as " champion " .
as to whether a 2012 win against felix sturm is worth anything , let's take a look at the people who beat a youger sturm more impressively :
2006 - KTFO'd by 38 years old Castillejo
2007 - put on queer street by Randy Griffin , and was lucky to get a draw in a fight most people felt he lost .
2011 - clearly beaten , but managed to escape with the hometown decision
2012 - geale wins a close fight that many felt could have easily been a draw
so quit talking about some great disparity between the two resumes , when the only difference is an overhyped german chump who's only claim to fame was a good performance against a washed up , blown up ,rusty de la hoya .
GGG wrecks sturm and DG in one night .
