NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA – Former Two-Time World Champion, Daniel Geale (31-3, 16 KO’s) is finalizing his last days of training in Australia as he prepares for his upcoming June 6 world championship bout against WBC and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32 KO’s) which will be televised live on HBO from Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
“Training camp has started off on the right track,” said Daniel Geale. “I’m super focused on Miguel Cotto and we have a nice game plan were working on. My countrymen have shown a tremendous amount of support since I came back from the press conference. I’m getting some good work with some mates here at home and my body feels good. I’ll be leaving to start training in the United States shortly and it’s something I’m looking forward too. Cotto is a great champion, but I’m coming to win and bring that belt home to Australia.”
