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.
