Exactly WBA is the worst if the big 4 now.

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.
