Default Daniel Geale: How good is he?

He's ranked no.10 at MW by Ring Mag now. Can he go on to be a world champ?

He is good, he has boxing skill . . . He doesnt have much of a punch, something that could hurt him at top level . . . I need to see more of him against top level competition to make a final decision . . . I would say he has the skills to stay with the big boys at the top, but a bit of lack in power and overall finesse may cost him against top dogs such as Pavlik and Abraham . . . Had a good AM career

nothing i've seen in him so far, makes me think he can beat the top fighters at 160

but i hope he can prove me wrong

Who knows how good he is until he fights someone who is genuine world level. He looks a good tidy boxer with limited power at 160 for someone who might be considered top 20 in the world. The jury is well and truly still out imo. The fight he is having tomorrow night is a joke even if it is a stay busy fight. Lets see him fight someone like Raul Marquez who just lost to Abraham. That would be a good next step.

good skill, not a big puncher, not yet top 10.
to be honest ring mag are losing it in their ratings lately.
no longer as "accurate" as they used to be in the fans eyes.

He needs to more active with better oposition, the only guy he has fought is Dawson and he was an embarassment to Australian boxing last month getting smashed by Bruce Mcfie in a kickboxing fight (all in the hand department).

Dan is a silky smooth boxer. His power is limited but his skill is second to none in the Oz MW scene. I had the Privlidge of sparing a few rounds with him back as Am's down in canberra. Top bloke, not a mean bone in his body. I dont see him holding up well against the likes of AA, SS or Pavlik but he is still has alot to do. Best of luck.

I spoke to his old coach a few nights ago.

He is very disapointed in how he is being managed atm, and i agree, its totally ****ed how he is kept waiting for a decent fight, his managment should have had him over in the U.S by now...FFS, he has the IBO middle world title, like guys wouldnt want that fight!!!

G Gorge also said he is losing some of his technique, and is being hit way to easy..that used to be his thing, no one could tag him clean.

Sadly now he seams happy to trade inside, thats not Geale, not the Geale i wanna see anyway.

Drop the matchmaker....move to the U.S and win some decent money Dan...you should have left RSL fights behind a long time ago.

just my piece, Dan is still my fav boxer, but he is gettin ****ed in the ass by Grange imo.

The Geale and Dawson fight was a great build up to a good fight. It would have been apprecited by all who follow and back Geale get to see him fight at that level from then on IMO.

As for Dawson being an embarrassment to Aussie boxing Pffft, he was doing Scott a favour to help make that night worth going to. I hear his Battlextreme promotions are going to be a hit next year in Perth.

Hello Shiner

Have you spoken to Daniel?

His main focus is on pro boxing and Battlextreme.
