GGG fight, Geale was given 4 and 1/2 months to fight him not 6 weeks, many fans on other forums speculated Geale would drop the title rather than fight GGG. He was stripped because he knew he was to fight GGG in a specific duration of time once he won the belt, he failed to do so and wouldnt have fought GGG in that duration because he committed to the Mundine fight.
Geale wins the title on 1st of September 2012
Geale fights Mundine on the 30th of January 2013
5 months passed
Martinez, everyone said that he was going to fight Chavez and not Geale and Geale had to wait, only to then see Martinez matched up with Murray lol. Which is my point about Murray.
Soliman, he didnt want to fight him, never had any intention of fighting him and if forced to do so he was going to draw it out as long as he could. There is personal issues surrounding that fight not just the fact Soliman could spoil Geale and win.
Try and do some research instead of making it up on the spot, Ty.
According to WBA rules, a champion has 9 months to face his mandatory or he gets stripped. Geale was given three on short notice AFTER the Sturm fight had been signed. He knew he had to fight Golovkin (and has stated he is more than willing) but not within three months, so get your facts straight before making an **** of yourself. The WBA ordered that they would have to fight by the 31st of December ONE DAY BEFORE THE STURM VS GEALE FIGHT and well after the fight had been signed.
They are asking him to go from fighting the then Ring ranked #1 overseas to fighting the Ring ranked #3 in less than three months. The WBA did not want Geale as champion, otherwise they would have stripped WK, Chris Johns, G. Jones and others of their titles seeing as they have avoided their mandatories just as long as Sturm did and even granted them extensions.
