Re: Soliman beats Sturm. Does Geale take the fight or drop the IBF MW title?
Solomon has already earned his shot.. then was relinquished. Now after Sturm he's top 5 middleweight in the world above Macklin, Murray, Pirog and JCC JR according to boxrec. (ring has yet to update)
There seems to be plenty of incentive for Geale and there could be a lot of local interest for this fight. He's raised his public profile and building a strong following after Mundine. To further his negotiations in a Martinez fight Australia needs show interest.
Martinez and the WBC will probably carry on with a silly JCC JR rematch after he's done with Martin. If not the case, Geale will be ready and the next best possible opponent for Martinez.
