Default Re: Golovkin vs Osumanu Adama: March 30, France?

if he wants those over 20mil/fight paydays, he has to fight in the u.s. and keep building up the fanbase. he has to continue to keep his exposure and marketability up, fight in france will go unrecognized.

BTW, the only reason Sturm offered Geale the unification is to defer the mandatory. If you remember, Geale was about to sign for Pirog on HBO in Aug, then Sturm swooped in with a bigger offer and sure unification.
Absolutely. He would have fought him IF he had known prior to the signing. Geale has balls, having traveled to Germany twice and taking on the champions with the odds stacked against him. The WBA ****ed him over, pure and simple.

I am well aware that Sturm did every thing to avoid GGG, but it backfired massively. The Geale vs Pirog fight would have gone ahead, but the WBO refused to sanction the fight thus making only Geales title at stake, so he
took Sturms offer.

The only noteworthy thing he's ever done is TKO a shot-to-bits Roman Karmazin.

The Karmazin of only a year or two before would've dealt with him.

He lost every second against Geale; those scorecards were puzzlingly close. It was a clear 120-108.

He lost cleanly to mediocre Dyah Davis, and got dropped by him. (larger maybe but less p4p hard-hitting than GGG)

He lost cleanly to 1-dimensional Don George, and got dropped by him as well. (larger maybe but less p4p hard-hitting than GGG)

He possesses a moderate punch and a decent gas tank, but that's IT. Very low on boxing skills, pretty slow, and suspect chin.

For a guy like Golovkin (who is a superior boxer, isn't going to be troubled by Adama's level of power and will time him effortlessly and can definitely hurt him) - easy work.

The thing is, his next HBO date is in june, hopefully some name fighter steps up. He wants to stay busy in the mean time. Someone help me out, when's the last time a beltholder (above LW, say) fought twice in 80 days? Huck used to come close.

It's a stay busy fight taking place 2 months after his last one. Within that context Adama is satisfactory. He's keeping busy until the June HBO date hopefully against someone like Pirog or Geale.

I guess the Darren Barker thing was just a rumour or did Barker say no thanks again?

Yeah, that's fine I guess.

Still think Golovkin will KO him within half the scheduled distance. It'll be fun to watch. It will probably be the last time we have to see Adama for a while.

Abel Sanchez said the plan was to fight Pirog in June so if that goes ahead, I guess I can deal with Adama as a stay busy fight. Most guys would just take a lay off until June so it's not terrible news but this doesn't really excite me in any way either.

He won't be fighting Adama, but it's someone durable.

Well I guess that rules out Taylor then. If it's someone "durable" without a following then it must be Ishida or Zbik.

Zbik durable? He's coming off a TKO from Sturm. Given it's Monaco, I could see Spada getting the nod. That's just hopefull thinking giving the vast array of cans that it could end up being.

Question: How do you justify an absolute shit fight in 2013?

Answer: Call it a "stay busy fight" and say hopefully the next fight is against someone worthy.

I'm only willing to accept voluntary defense against Adama if it's followed by someone like a Pirog.
