It would be an interesting fight between Mundine's left overs

I'd Imagine they could draw a good crowd in Melbourne and have a good undercard

**** Golovkin it's only internet warriors who claim everybody is ducking him, If I was Geale I would rather keep the IBF strap and not have to be the challenger for the WBA. Let GGG keep defending against blown up welterweights...

Where did you hear that? From Soliman? No, Daniel didnt cope with being tackled in response to Schooling Soliman.

Im not the only person here who knows of the rumours of sparring.

So he will fight some African Mandatory that no one knows anything about here in Aus, but he shouldn't fight Soliman, who stepped aside so Geale could get his pay day against Mundine, they are both Aussie, makes much more sense that his mandatory against the African... Something is fishy....

From memory they sparred some 5-6 years ago. Sam fought a sub-par Sturm the other day. Sturm looked nothing like when he fought Geale. Good timing for Soliman, fighting fighters that have been broken by Geale, he's done that a couple of times now hasnt he? So 5-6 years on, Geale has no problem retiring Soliman. Sparring 5-6 years ago, Good try.

**** who know what about who in oz, do your research. Fact is, Sam is a non-event, hard to sell, and brings what to the table? Everything has to be done for him, at Least with Mundine, he brings ticket sales to the table. If Geale ends up having to fight Soliman, so be it, but its a waste of time and money, a no point bout.

I agree.

And also from a boxing perspective I'd much rather see Geale try and make a GGG fight instead of looking average against Soliman.

So u believe that the Mandatory African he fought was easier to sell in Tassie than a fight with Soliman would be in Tassie or Melbourne?? Righto mate, whatever ya wanna believe.

It's not the point, he lost his WBA belt because he didnt want to fight Sam..Now he should be allowed to duck Sam again just so he can go on and fight Golovkin??? There is a reason why there are mandatory fights that need to be inforced

How??
How could a fight with Eromesle Albert or Osumanu Adamu possibly be easier to sell in Aus than a world title fight between 2 Aussies?

What the **** do you mean he lost his WBA belt because he didnt want to fight Sam?

****ing oath he should not fight Sam to fight Golovkin, brush the old man and fight the contender.

It might be enforced, we will See. He may very well fight Soliman. Its just my opinion.

You are purely speculating.. Soliman v Geale, Aussie v Aussie for a world title would outsell the African debacle, no doubt in the world
