IBF middleweight champion Daniel “Real Deal” Geale rates Darren Barker the best of the current world class British middleweights, a group that also includes Martin Murray and Matthew Macklin. “They’re all very different styles and all good talent,” said Geale. “From a ‘boxing brain’ point of view though, I think Darren Barker Then you’ve got Murray and Macklin, who are both tough fighters who keep coming at you. Murray has more skill than Macklin though, so I’d have him ahead. I’ve got them ranked Barker first, Murray second and Macklin third, at the moment.”
Daniel Geale will clash with Darren Barker on August 17 in Atlantic City with the IBF middleweight title up for grabs.
