The long awaited return of former middleweight champion Daniel “The Real Deal” Geale is nearly here. On Wednesday, February 19th Geale faces former Australian Contender winner Garth Wood. Wood gained notoriety by scoring a huge upset knockout over the big talking Anthony Mundine.
This will be Geale’s first fight since his razor close decision loss to Englishman Darren Barker. The fight was Geale’s first in the United States. Should Geale look impressive against Wood, he will find himself in line for a shot against either WBO champion Gennady Golovkin or IBF champion Felix Sturm.
Monday afternoon the weigh-in will be taking place and this writer will have the privilege of being in attendance. Look out for weights and notes Monday evening.
The fight is being held at the Hordern Pavillion, with tickets starting at $65. For more information visit www.ticketek.com.au
