FORMER TWO-TIME WORLD CHAMPION DANIEL GEALE TO CHALLENGE

WBC MIDDLEWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION MIGUEL COTTO

ON JUNE 6, 2015 AT BARCLAYS CENTER IN BROOKLYN LIVE ON HBO®

 

PRESENTED BY ROC NATION SPORTS + MIGUEL COTTO PROMOTIONS 

 

New York (May 20, 2015) – Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32 KO’s), the reigning WBC and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Champion and the first native of Puerto Rico to become world champion in four different weight classes will defend his titles against former Two-Time World Champion Daniel Geale (31-3, 16 KO’s) of Australia on June 6, 2015 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn in a 12-round fight that will be televised live on HBO. Geale hosted a New York City media workout this afternoon at Mendez Boxing Gym in preparation for his title challenge against Cotto. Here’s what Geale, and his American promoter Gary Shaw, had to say:

 

Daniel Geale – Former Two-Time World Champion

 

“Cotto has trouble in stages against guys that move and use their reach. He knows that’s what I’m going to be doing and he’s going to be trying to counter that with aggression and coming forward. I’m going to use my abilities and not get caught up in his game plan.”

 

“The game plan is to go in and fight my fight. It’s not to get sucked in. It’s not to get caught up in what he [Cotto] is doing. It’s to do what I do best.”

 

“This is going to be a huge fight for me. Fighting a guy like Miguel who’s fought some of the greatest fighters is going to be a great test. We’re going in very confident.”

 

“I want this one badly. It’s something that we have wanted for a while and I’m extremely excited. I’ve got guys like Gary Shaw and my team at the Grange from Australia and they are working very hard behind the scenes. I’m just going to worry about my job and they do their job greatly. I just worry about getting myself in perfect condition.”

 

Gary Shaw – President of Gary Shaw Productions

 

“If Daniel wins, Cotto has a rematch clause, so if Cotto wants the immediate rematch then that’s what he gets. If not, according to WBC, it would be GGG again, but it doesn’t make a difference. Daniel will fight anybody, anywhere. We went to Germany and fought Strum on his territory. He’s coming to New York which is Cotto’s town. It just doesn’t make a difference when you have a great fighter.”

 

“It’s going to be a great show and the fans are going to get what they want. Tune in for a great fight on June 6. It’s going to be a great night of boxing.”

HOUSTON, TX (April 9, 2015) – Gary Shaw Productions undefeated heavyweight contender, Bryant “By-By” Jennings (19-0, 10 KOs), is entering the final weeks of training camp in preparation for his upcoming battle with Wladimir Klitschko (63-3, 53 KOs).  Jennings, who hails from Philadelphia, is looking to end Klitschko’s reign on the heavyweight division.

 

Klitschko vs. Jennings, a 12-round bout for Wladimir’s WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO World heavyweight titles, will take place at “The World’s Most Famous Arena”, Madison Square Garden, on April 25, 2015.  The event will be televised Live on HBO World Championship Boxing®beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT in the United States and RTL in Germany. 

 

On training in Houston, Texas…

“It’s really nice to get away from home and all the distractions that come with training in Philly.  I’m able to focus on nothing but boxing out here in Houston.  I got my whole team out here and were grinding away.”

 

On his upcoming matchup with Wladimir Klitschko…

“This is the top of the mountain when it comes to heavyweight boxing.  You can’t get any higher then fighting Klitschko.  With that being said, I’m ready to end Klitschko’s reign as heavyweight champion.  He’s been defeated before and he can be defeated again.  I’m confident I have the athleticism and skills to come out on top and bring those belts back home to America.”

 

On fighting at Madison Square Garden….

“Everyone knows The Garden is filled with deep roots in boxing history.  I’m looking to make my own history with a victory on April 25th.  This will be my third consecutive fight there and I feel my fan base has grown with each outing.  I’m know Philly will be representing and I’m excited about that.  I’m counting down the days and I’m very grateful to my promoters, Gary ShawAntonio Leonard, as well as my manager James Prince for making this fight a reality.”

 

On the possibility of becoming the next great American heavyweight champion…

“A victory against Klitschko will certainly bring back glory to the American heavyweight.  Klitschko has reigned supreme for so many years, so it will be a huge accomplishment to bring home the titles.  Dethroning Klitschko will open up many doors for my career and I see myself relishing in the moment.”
