This month's FIST magazine has Geale fighting Pavlik - so it's going to be a very busy August indeed for Daniel!

Geale set for a stoush with Sylvester

Tasmania Examiner
BY SHELLEY SPENCER
11 May, 2010

LAUNCESTON boxing hero Daniel Geale is expected to announce today he has secured a bout against highly regarded German middleweight Sebastian Sylvester.

Known as the "Hurrikan" the 29-year-old has an impressive record of 33 wins (16 KO) and three losses.

Geale has been keen to fight an opponent of this calibre since losing his IBO world middleweight title to Anthony Mundine in a controversial splits points decision this time last year.

After appealing against the decision, Geale won and "The Man" was ordered to fight a rematch, but instead vacated the title.

Since then Geale and Mundine have eyed match-ups against highly regarded international opponents rather than each other.

The Real Deal's fight against contender series finalist Kenyan Kariz Kariuki next month is set to be a warm-up for the fight of his life against Sylvester.

If Geale was to beat a fighter of Sylvester's calibre, it would be tempting for Mundine to schedule the highly anticipated rematch between the best two middleweight boxers in Australia.

Mundine admitted to The Examiner on April 8 that if Geale beat an opponent of Kelly Pavlik's calibre he would be looking for a rematch.

Sylvester is rated in the top 10 middleweight fighters in the world on points, along with Pavlik, Felix Sturm, Sergio Martinez, Mundine and Geale.

Although Sylvester, who is 172 centimetres, has only lost three times, he was knocked out twice, which may give Geale something to think about as he is an impressive counter-puncher.

The Real Deal's official record stands at 22 wins (13 KO) and one loss but he has never been professionally knocked out.

Geale has been training hard in Sydney for his fight against Kariuki at the Wollongong entertainment centre on June 2 and is said to be stoked after learning about his match-up against Sylvester.

This girl Shelly is a boxing fan but i dont think knows anything about boxing. Dont know if you can call Sylvester a impressive counter puncher

Good couple of fights for Geale, i hope he gets past Karikui without any cuts. Then fight the pom and Ricky hatton comes to watch the fight.

Daniel "the real deal" Geale

Who did kariz lose to last?

Macklin is getting slightly overrated on this thread.

Still awaiting confirmation of Geale's August opponent.

Reckon Ray will be on the money with Macklin. But assuming that's the case, the bird in Tassie will look pretty silly with what she ran with.

Garth Woods.i know what you're getting at but its a good keep busy fight.according to Boxrec hes ranked no.1 MW in
Britain and no.8 in the world.know nothing about him but that would suggest hes a more than credible opponent.a good fight if it can be made in Australia.

Still nothing as far as any confirmation goes for Geale's bout after Kariuki.

The bird from the Tassie newspaper is looking further & further off the mark...

....Sylvester and an announcement on May 11th - I don't think so!

Sergio Mora was offered a fight with Macklin on the under card of Marquez v Diaz II. Mora wants it in England where it would be a big event.

Hopefully that makes it easier to put together Geale v Macklin...if it hasn't been agreed to yet.

I knew that sm, was just highlighting a double standard. Macklin is decent enough but he's a come forward fighter and geale should outbox him if he survives the early pressure.

Why doesn't he enforce his rematch clause with mundine? It was in his contract wasn't it?

Yeah, because despite doing huge numbers around the country (something you'd have absolutely no idea about because you don't live here), and being Chocs biggest payday in a long time, genuine interest in the general public for a return which would guarantee a bigger dividend, what possible reason could there have been not to have a rematch?

The biggest clue was a hysterical promoter bounding up the steps between rounds telling his charge (and the rest of the country) what can happen when you don't have all the bases covered.

Something that no doubt explains the current lack of any future opponent.

Still, I guess for some people it makes much more $en$e to drag things out week by week.
