SYDNEY - Former IBF middlweight champion Daniel Geale wants to prove to Australia that it's got a great champion with a victory over invincible hard-hitter Gennady Golovkin.

Geale had secured a title showdown with the undefeated WBA and IBO middleweight champion at New York's Madison Square Garden on July 26.

"I'm pleased to be making my way back to HBO against Gennady Golovkin." said Geale.

"A victory will get me back to where I wanted to be.

"The people of Australia believe in me and that's what drives me, my countrymen. On July 26th the world will see me back on top."

Geale has only fought once since losing his IBF title to Darren Baker last August.
