IBF and WBA middleweight world champion Daniel Geale continues to be wooed by American television executives.

Geale and promoter Gary Shaw met HBO president Ken Hershman yesterday and will continue talks once the winner of the Sergio Martinez-Julio Cesar Chavez Jr fight is decided on Sunday.
"We spoke a little but everything is on hold until Saturday, until we know who the winner is," Shaw said. "There is a lot of interest in Daniel."
Geale was introduced at the Martinez-Chavez Jr press conference and has generated a lot of interest from the mainstream boxing media as the middleweight division dares to dream of a unified champion.
It is understood Martinez is willing to go straight into talks with Geale to unify the division if he claims Chavez Jr's WBC belt on Sunday.

HBO programmers are also salivating at the prospect of an undisputed champion, unseen since "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler dominated the division.
The interest in Geale contains the tremendous irony that he is the one Australian fighter US fans are excited by - an opportunity sound machine Anthony Mundine appears to have passed up because of his unwillingness to take real fights.
Mundine had a chance to fight Geale nine months ago but knocked it back.
It has never been revealed, but Geale's management team yesterday confirmed they struck a deal earlier this year with Mundine's manager Khoder Nasser for a rematch in Australia.
"I put it to Khoder nine months ago and we made the deal for them to fight," Grange Old School Boxing's Bill Treacy said.
After weeks of negotiation, "He came back to me and said he spoke to [Mundine] and he said he will never fight Geale again."

Geale should have been airing his fights live in Australia on free to air. He literally has noone else to blame but himself for his lack of notoriety.

Now that is one interesting quote from Anthony Mundine, and it means there's no further need for speculation about a rematch

Unfortunately it doesnt work like that. fighters have no control over the airing of fights. Free to air channels are not intertested, and fox controls it all.

Channel ONE dabbled in it briefly a few years back with local fight cards, and they did televise a Klitschko fight and Vic' last fight. But that might well be the last we see of FTA boxing.

And watch the nuthuggers scurry away

Good to hear Sergio is keen to unify, Geale is making all the right moves and deserves a big pay day

It does, if the free-to-air channels are paid to televise it, they will televise it. But once again, if they are too stingy to go that route, they should have been putting him in commercials hyping up his fights, getting his name out there. Just look at Mundine, he gets big PPV's by being a notorious cunt... But it fills his pockets.

Mandy is a big name because of his football days, well, and being a notorious cunt, but it's not because of boxing.

Ya Sergio is out with his knee injury for quite a while. Geale has until Sept 20 to decide if he's going to fight Golovkin or drop his WBA Super belt.

TV stations are not paid to televise. They purchase programs, and sell advertising, by means of ads, promotions and product placement. If a program is viable, they will pay for it, the same way foxtel does when throwing 15-20000 in per show for friday night fights. As mentioned they tried it with one hd, and I think Billy Dib managed to **** that one up with Bad sportsmanship.
