Default Attn: Adelaide Fight Fans...

Thought you guys might like to know that World Middleweight Champion Daniel "The Real Deal" Geale will be attending the Port Club this Sunday afternoon. It's a "meet and greet" with fans along with local Cruiserweight prospect Mostyn "The Boss" Niemann, who is fighting on Geale's undercard on August 31st. South Aussie fight fans are encouraged to come along and meet the champ. Plenty of opportunities to get an autograph if that takes your fancy and get a photo with Dan and his world title belt. There's going to be a Q & A session with both boxers as well.

Time: 2:30pm
Date: Sunday, 7th of August.
Place: The Port Club, Queen Street, Alberton. (08 ) 8447 9902

Should be a good one mate. Press conference with Channel 10 and other media already arranged. Good foresight from the Grange IMO to bring Gealey over and increase his exposure.

Will that be live on channel 10 from 2:30, or just highlights in the news or something else?

Just the news mate. Even then I'd imagine it'll just be the South Australian news.

Might be an idea for someone to plan an incident that might help it receive better coverage.

Wouldn't that just be doing what any good promoter should do?

Look at Green Machine, Danny trots around all over the joint preceeding his bouts, hence why he sell's big, big numbers.

You want big numbers, you promote, not put it down to 'good foresight'.

Fair call.

Step in the right direction none the less for Geale...hope his profile can raise as a result tho it will take some time.

Thought once Danny got hold of a belt he'd be able to keep his shirt in.

Not so it would seem.

I don't think Green goes to Adelaide, nobody does really. It's a bit of an untapped market. Most concerntrate on the eastern seaboard.

There is certainly fight fans there as kickboxing and MMA shows regularly draw crowds over 2000 + I'm told. It's been a while since a big fight as such was held there, that's for sure.
