Australia’s IBF middleweight champion, Daniel Geale (29-1, 15 KOs) held a media workout Monday at the Mendez Boxing Gym in New York City. Geale will be defending his title against #3 rated Darren Barker (25-1, 16 KOs) this Saturday night on HBO at the Revel Casino-Hotel in Atlantic City.
“I’m feeling good as I’m starting to get fresher every day,” Geale stated. “I’m excited because I know it’s going to be a great fight. Barker is going to come out hard and I know he’s very hungry. I want to be pushed and I know Barker is going to that which is going to make for an exciting fight. Fighting on HBO is great. It’s been a long time coming and I’m excited to fighting on such a great card. Gary Shaw and my team back home have done a great job getting me here and I just want to put on a great show. To all my fans please tune in because I’m going to bring that title home.”
Geale’s promoter Gary Shaw added, “People must not forget that Daniel went overseas and fought two different fighters and came out on top, both of them from Germany. That in itself is a major statement. Daniel Geale doesn’t fight scared. He’s an offensive fighter and a great counter puncher. His skills are highly underrated and you will all see him live on Saturday night.”
