Default Soliman beats Sturm. Does Geale take the fight or drop the IBF MW title?

I want everyones opinion of what they think Geale and Team Geale will do now?

Does he fight Sammy in Melbourne, Tasmania or Sydney in an all Australian showdown or does he drop the IBF belt and go to the US for a big fight?

Fight him in Melb in front of a decent crowd in 3 months time, Geale should earn a half decent pay day and get the victory no problem.

Depends. He should fight Soliman don't know if he can get a big fight in the U.S without a credible belt.

I'm sure Geale won't be dropping the IBF title.

Personally, I'd make the mandatory (in either Melbourne or Tassie).

That then clears the decks for him to fight whoever he wants over the next 12 months.

Sergio is likely committed for his next two fights so I don't really see a problem with Geale continuing to build his profile in Australia with a mandatory defence against Sam or even Mundine III.

After Mundine II, a lot more people in Australia are going to want to see him fight.

Nah he definetely can't drop the belt. It's his negotiating tool for the big fights.

I think Geale needs the title to get bigger fights so he's not going to drop it. Sadly for Daniel he's not the sort of flashy, put bums on seats kinda guy with knock out power so him being a champ is crucial to this.

Fight Sam - and I think Geale would beat him (I said the same thing about Sturm beating Sam!) - then aim for another big payday with Martinez or Chavez in the USA and then IF he manages to get the wins fight GGG in a unification bout in the USA too.

Stoked for Sam that he won but him and Geale is gonna be a ugly fight.

Does anyone else think this fight would be a waste of time?? Mandatory has to happen I suppose, I think it will be a clash of styles and possibly make for a hard fight for Daniel, hope he wins though

Sam has earned his mandatory position. He has fought 3 eliminators in his last 4 fights. I agree he will give Geale trouble hell he's So unorthodox he gives anyone trouble.
