Daniel Geale targets America!

Daniel Geale arrives back in Sydney after fight with Felix Sturm.

Unified middleweight world champion Daniel Geale has revealed that his next target is to fight in America and really announce himself to the worldwide community of boxing fans.
The Aussie is already a relatively well-known and popular fighter but he is probably not even heard of by most casual boxing fans. So a big fight in America would be a perfect way to boost his popularity.

Geale is just coming off of a fantastic victory over former world champion Felix Sturm but the 'Real Deal' claims that he wants to carry on fighting tough opponents in big fights. To start this process, he would like to take on the winner of the middleweight super-showdown between Sergio Martinez and Julio Cesat Chavez Jr, two of the best fighters in the world.

"I think if you go over and conquer the US as well that's the next target," said Geale.

"With the help of my promoter Gary Shaw, we're going to get over there and shake those guys up too... Its been great to do it in Germany, but I think now we've got to do it in other countries as well. I'd love to be able to bring some huge name fighters out to Australia as well. I'd love to be able to put on a massive home town fight in Sydney."

"We've got to keep taking the next step and that is obviously going to mean more money, but it definitely means harder and bigger fights."

Geale does also have a mandatory defence for each title he owns. One against fellow Australian Sam Soliman and the other with quickly rising superstar Gennady Golovkin.
