The WBA wants Gennady Golovkin to knockout Australian Daniel Geale

Rather than manhandling Jarrod Fletcher, the WBA will allow middleweight titlist Gennady Golovkin to batter Australian Daniel Geale on July 26 at Madison Square Garden.

Meeting at 168 pounds, the 32-year-old Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs) was tentatively scheduled to face Julio Cesar Chavez on July 19 at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

Quite pathetically, despite being offered boatloads of cash, the 6-foot-1 Chavez (48-1-1-1, 32 KOs) ultimately cowered and refused to throw fists with the 5-foot-11 Golovkin.

GGG last vacated the squared circle on February 1 after successfully defending the WBA and IBO middleweight belts versus an overwhelmed 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.

Conversely, the 33-year-old Geale (30-2, 16 KOs) is nothing more than a middling prizefighter.

Geale most recently earned a sixth round TKO over Garth Wood on February 19 in Sydney.

An uninspiring pugilist, Geale will not last 24 minutes with Golovkin this summer.

In a disgusting mismatch, expect Gennady Golovkin to knock Daniel Geale onto Queer Street roughly eight weeks from tonight in Gotham.
