Shaw Electrified by Geale Performance

Promoter Gay Shaw says he is still thrilled by the performance of his new IBF Middleweight Champion, Daniel Geale (26-1, 15 KOs), who dethroned champion Sebastian Sylvester by 12-round split decision on Saturday night at the Jahnsportforum in Neubrandenburg, Germany.

“I felt like I was dreaming,” recounted Shaw. “To win a decision in Germany is making a statement. Daniel was terrific, very fast, and he stayed busy throughout and maintained a great output of punches.”

The Tasmanian-born boxer is the first Australian to win a belt on German soil. He won by scores of 118-110 and 118-112 on two cards, while another judge curiously had Sylvester winning 118-110 on the third card.

Fights with fellow world-class Australian fighters Garth Wood, Sam Soliman and Anthony Mundine are possible, but Shaw says there is no rush to announce a next move.

“I will speak with the team about several different opponents, and we will carefully weigh Daniel’s options. Right now we’re just celebrating his brilliant victory.”
