Gennady Golovkin is training in Big Bear for Australian Daniel Geale

Bruising badass Gennady Golovkin is in the midst of a prolonged training camp in Big Bear, California.

Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs) will defend the WBA and IBO middleweight belts against Australian Daniel Geale on July 26 at Madison Square Garden.

GGG last vacated the squared circle on February 1 after overwhelming Osumanu Adama.

Golovkin, who has now recorded 16 consecutive knockouts, floored the 33-year-old Adama (22-4, 16 KOs) in the first and sixth rounds.

Sensing a beaten man, the powerful Russian mercilessly stalked Adama and again bullied the challenger to the canvas with a savage hook in the seventh frame.

Referee Louis Pabon compassionately halted the lopsided beating at 1:20 of the decisive round.

A punishing, ferocious and accurate slugger, Golovkin has never been toppled in over 375 contests.

“This is a longer camp than normal but I haven’t fought since February 1. It feels great to be back with Abel (Sanchez) and the team,” said Golovkin, 32, who took an extended break following the death of his father on February 18.

“It took me a couple days when I got to camp to get comfortable but now camp is going well and I look forward to returning to Madison Square Garden.”

Meanwhile, the 33-year-old Geale (30-2, 16 KOs) most recently earned a sixth round TKO over Garth Wood on February 19 in Sydney.

“Geale is more accomplished, he’s a two-time world champion and he’s the most experienced boxer at the top level that we’ve fought,” said Sanchez, who trains Golovkin.

“Hopefully he will bring out the very best of Gennady. The better he is, the better it will be for Gennady to perform.”

Dismissing Sanchez’s words, Geale is nothing more than a middling prizefighter.

Granted, mainly because marquee opponents have cowered, GGG does not own signature triumphs.

Regardless, “the very best of Gennady” or not, Geale has virtually zero chance to emerge victorious.

Expect Gennady Golovkin to knock Daniel Geale onto Queer Street within eight rounds next month in Gotham.
