Default After seeing Martinez tonight, im not convinced Geale could handle him

What do guys think?

Geale's work rate is incredible and he's no doubt a very intense fighter, but Martinez seems so level headed in pressure moments and his ability to return blows when being handled is crazy

Martinez is a classy boxer, who showed us tonight that he can also brawl.. goddamn, i still cant believe he didn't clinch even when being handled in that last round

I predict IF Geale was lucky enough to get the fight in the future, it'd be a test to big to conquer

thoughts?

Geale has a punchers chance. Martinez is a class above Geale. Geale is an honest hard working fighter who will give a good effort but will lose.

Youre right about Martinez. Very classy, and he shows experience, not age. Movement and work rate are Geales bread and butter. Fighters find it hard to go with him when he dictates the pace, as shown with sturm and karmizen. He beat sylvestor with superior movement.

Would be a great fight, and Geales biggest test.

I am not sure he even has a punchers chance to be honest.
He has ZERO power, Sergio throws as many punches as geale, but unlike Geale he actually lands and throws quality punches!
Total mismatch if this fight happens, Sergio 12-zip plus knockdowns or an earlier KO of Geale

He would get more respect from a Martinez loss then a cabbie win, at least he would have the nads to get in there

Geale is very good at the basics. But he is exceptional at nothing. He is better than most middleweights, but Martinez or Chavez would beat him. I think Martinez would beat him to the punch, hit harder, take a better shot and throw as many punches. Martinez is more experienced too. Geale is a natural middleweight , so has a size advantage, but I doubt he could capitalise on that. I am not running Geale down, it's just Martinez is a level or 3 above.

Don't bother with this ****wit. He's so pathetic that he created an account called RealDealDG and tried to convince everyone that it was the unified WBA/IBF Middleweight champion himself because he believes that everyone is thick as Scumdine and his feral, inbred supporters and must not have more than 3 brain cells. It's hard to believe that a piece of shit like yourself was allowed to live when you were born.

Everything I said was 100% accurate.

Sergio is not only better, but significantly better in every single department, including Geales main strenght of workrate.

Geale would look like a smashed crab if this fight ever happened.

Exactly this!

Martinez
Quicker
Busier
More accurate
Better punching Power
Great resiliance.
More ring savvy
Fought much better opposition

In what department do the Geale huggers honestly think Geale is better than Sergio?
Please enlighten me

Must have watched a different fight - Martinez hands down all fight , wide open for a counter with every punch he throws , looked a love tap from being knocked out in the 12th and barely made it to the finish after winning 11 rounds straight. Style versus Style says Geales tight classic style will be much harder to crack then the over- hyped clueless Mexican who still did'nt know what to do after the knockdown . An old Martinez will start favorite but not a overwhelming one .
