Default Re: Soliman beats Sturm. Does Geale take the fight or drop the IBF MW title?

I'd actually like to see Geale offer Soliman his due shot here.

Sam has put in honest work the last few years, notched some decent names, and fought in three IBF eliminators. He deserves this.

Furthermore, on current form he makes for a more creditable title defense than did 37 yo Mundine. In fact, he'd count as Geale's 2nd best defense after Sturm as I don't rate Adama one jot and Albert was shot when he lost to Geale (and he lost to Soliman every bit as comfortably a mere nine weeks or so later)

After this domestic business is settled, Geale can resume chasing that big international unification affair.

He has to fight Soliman, I'm sure that he isn't actually ducking him but if he tries to get out of the fight again that is how it is going to come across.

Fight Soliman and if you're good enough to get past him fight Golovkin..

That's all pretty fair.

From the punters perspective, its fair enought to want to see Geale v Soliman. From a business perspective, which is what it is, Sam needs to be looked over.

Thats where boxing falls to pieces.. the UFC, you fight whoever they put in front of you. Sam has earned his number one shot, it should be that simple

It should. Daniel put him off once for a payday he should give Soliman a shot. But it's boxing.

Falling to peices in what way? The middleweight division is stacked, and there have been some great fights of late. Why do you think fighters have backers and strive to get to World title level? To get a belt? Titles give you the leverage to create big paydays. You think sponsors and managers invest money in fighters just because they feel like it? no, they believe in a fighter and most of the time percieve that a return will be made on investment. Its a business the same as any other. This old bullshit statement about the UFC "fight who they put in front of you" means nothing, you cant compare the 2. The UFC have the monopoly on MMA.

As for Sam, he offers no return on investment. Push him aside.

Falling apart in the sense that, No one fights each other... They are too worried about a loss on their records etc. Answer me this... If Geale was all for the big fights, why did he fight those two nobody Africans after he beat Sylvester the first time??
I have also heard that some time ago Sam and Daniel did a fair bit of sparring together and Daniel didn't cope too well with Sams style...

Noone fights each other
One African was a voluntary, and one was a mandatory. Whats your point?
Where did you hear that? From Soliman? No, Daniel didnt cope with being tackled in response to Schooling Soliman.
