Default Re: The Real Deal stripped of WBA "super" title - Official

I dont know if anyone mentioned it, but Martin Murray is apparently fighting for the WBA interim title now too. How the **** does the WBA work?? Interim champion, regular champion and super champion makes such a joke to consider any of them a world champion.

That's a good point!

It's the same as the winner of Geale - Mundine II knowing in advance that they will have to fight Sam Soliman according to the IBF.

Whether the winner does or doesn't is another story, but the same rule may apply like the WBA have done here.

Good article from Scott Christ on the situation....I like Scott. Doesn't pull any punches. See below.

"Daniel Geale is predictably outraged, and rightly so, by the WBA's ludicrous decision to strip him of his middleweight title belt, and has lashed out at the sanctioning body, which never even sent him the title belt he won in September from Felix Sturm.

Geale is taking basically the same stance anyone with a brain would, that he's being very clearly screwed by the organization. After years of not forcing favored son Sturm to face a mandatory challenger, the WBA has chosen to blame Geale for not facing Gennady Golovkin immediately after winning his title, instead opting for a bigger money bout in Australia with Anthony Mundine in January.

"What Felix Sturm did by not defending against the mandatory had nothing to do with me,'' Geale said. "But they gave me half the time frame they usually give for a mandatory defence. I have no problem fighting Golovkin, but if I did it would mean going to the US and fighting on a small card with crap money for a title fight.

"The Mundine fight is much more viable, it helps my profile massively and is a better money fight, and opens doors in the US. If I had taken the mandatory with the WBA, then I'm quite sure the IBF would have stripped me so I was in a no-win situation."

This is an obvious case of typical boxing political nonsense, nothing at all to do with fairness or sport, and everything to do with bureaucratic, money-grubbing B.S.

There's really not much more to say about it than that. Geale is mad, and he should be. He's calling them out for what is a completely transparent and bogus decision, and it's good that he is. I'm not even saying Geale-Mundine II is some great fight, and I don't agree with him that it opens any doors in the U.S., because it doesn't -- Mundine is nobody here, and the fight is about making money at home, and getting revenge for Geale's only career loss. And that's fine. But it's impossible to disagree with the idea that he's being shafted by boxing's usual crap. It's exactly what has happened.

Maybe next, Golovkin can be offered a terrible deal to face Sturm, one so bad that he'll turn it down, and Sturm can face Julien Marie Sainte for the vacant title."

The State boxing authorities in this country should withdraw accreditation from the WBA and prevent them from being involved in the sport in this country (not that they've ever contributed much anyway).

It's time this country ****ed the WBA off permanently.
I think it's pretty poor form he has been stripped of his title before he has even received his belt. That's pretty ridiculous!

Yep - for a supposed world body this is ridiculous.

IMO a clear sign of disrespect and showing the clear intent that the WBA was going to **** over Geale at any possible opportunity.

I managed to get myself a brand new WBA world championship belt last week & yet they can't even send one to a guy who won it in the ring two months ago.

The WBA is a ****ing joke and ought to be prohibited from being involved in the sport in this country.
It's up to the promotor to get the belt.

Hey Genius, did it ever cross ur mind that Geale didnt put the belt on show because he has yet to recieve one from the WBA or you just dont read boxing articles/news?

would make more fighting Soliman in Melbourne with the winner billed to fight Mundine. Mundine is the name, its just a simple fact (why is Geale fighting him?), and Mundine's name would be used to sell Geale-Soliman (bcus Geale sure dont sell sh1t).

If Geale fights Soliman after Mundine (assuming he beats Mundine) then he is fighting a guy who a guy he just beat KOed and UD. Bit harder to sell that.
