HBO Road to Golovkin/Geale debuts July 12
- Updated: June 26, 2014
Gennady Golovkin and Daniel Geale will square off on July 26, but before that HBO will give fans a preview of the two fighters’ paths to this world title fight.
The Australian Geale (30-2, 16 KO) will be fighting in the United States for just the second time in his career. He made his stateside debut last year when he lost his IBF middleweight title to Darren Barker.
In his meteoric rise in 2013 that included vicious knockouts of Nobuhiro Ishida and Matthew Macklin, Golovkin (29-0, 26 KO) picked up right where he left off in 2014, stopping Osumanu Adama in February.
The “Road to Golovkin/Geale” special will premiere Saturday, July 12 at 12:05 a.m. ET/PT on HBO.
The middleweight title fight between Golovkin and Geale takes place at the Madison Square Garden in New York on Saturday, July 26.
