GOOD BOY GETS IT DONE Golovkin Stops Geale In Round Three

Genady GolovkinThe face is kind but the fists are hard and the intent is nasty. Gennady Golovkin, the grinning asassin, stopped overmatched Daniel Geale in round three in the main event at Madison Square Garden on Saturday evening, and on HBO. The end came at 2:47, via TKO, as Mike Ortega didn't like the looks of Geale after he arose to beat the count.

The ending right came after Geale landed his own right, a stiff power punch. But there's stiff, and then there's STIFF.

On paper, many said Geale, an ex titlist, was to be Golovkin's sternest foe. It didn't pan out that way. He didn't have the pop to put off Triple G, and his chin couldn't withstand the fire from the king of kazakh athletics. This was the 17th straight stoppage for the victor. He said after he liked to get the KO, because that is entertaining for the fans. He said he wants to unify crowns and then when pressed, said he wants to fight Miguel Cotto.

Geale promoter Gary Shaw told me after that GGG is the real deaal, better than he expected and would beat both Cotto and Canelo Alvarez. "Too powerful and too much pressure," he said.

GGG (159.8) was 29-0 with 26 KOs entering, while Geale (159.2) was 30-2 with 16 KOs for the Aussie.

In the first, Trip had a nice jab, and slipped and ducked, while he warmed up. DG moved a bunch, was active with the jab, and looked to attack enough to get some respect. The right clanged on him and then a left hook to the body stung Geale. He went down, ruled a slip. He landed clean a few times but it didn’t make the champ blink.

In the second, down went Geale early. A right to the head hurt him and body work did too. Geale tried to not get trapped on the ropes and was successful some in that vein. The knockdown shot was maybe from a right behind the head. The doc looked at a cut over the right eye of Geale.

In the third, Geale danced laterally, tried some potshot counters, and clinched some protectively. A right hand to the face sent Geale down and the ref didn’t like his eyes and halted it.

oh my lord, GGG!
even after he got hit flush with a right from DG, GGG's own right was thrown simultaneously and landed flush on DGs face and dropped em, now thats what you call naturally heavy handed!

It showed the different in punching at. And in punching through. Geale did the at thing. And 3g wasn't havin' it. And straight up punch throw the target. And Geale was concussed. Holla!

Think Souliman can give him that work?

This GGG guy is pretty good...

Three g will not fight the Aussie. There is no money in it. And the style is all wrong. And could be dangerous. Holla!

Team Golovkin is currently pursuing a unification fight with Sam Soliman. Soliman had declined an earlier offer to fight the ultra-achieving Golovkin...but the 40 year old title holder is supposedly ready to unify titles with Golovkin before the end of 2014.

Even if Soliman backs out HBO is determined to keep their flagship fighter as busy as possible with a TBA (if necessary)event as early as October or November.

Soliman makes a ton of sense. I can see HBO trying to get that to happen to get Golovkin to start unifying the Middleweight titles.

Another name that I forgot about and may be possible is Sergio Mora. Mora has in the past stated his desire to face Golovkin. He is a name and brings his slick style to the table. Frankly, as I have previously stated, there just aren't many out there right now willing to face Golovkin for one reason or another. I would not be surprised to see Mora get some consideration especially if Soliman passes on the fight.

Agreed...

And I doubt Mora is not as slippery as he was when he beat the late Vernon Forrest

amayseng says:

Please Lord not Mora, the guy is an anti fighter, he has ruined a many of career for his opponents by boring them and the fans to sleep.

Mora has nothing to offer the fight game or fight fans.


Where is Cotto? Why isn't that fight being pushed by the commision or do they not do that anymore?
