“Middleweights Daniel Geale and Darren Barker knuckle up under the lights of the Revel Resort, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Saturday night. While a bit of a sore thumb—a bout featuring two commonwealth fighters with one prior HBO appearance between them—Geale-Barker will produce the kind of legitimate opponent Gennady Golovkin has pursued for a year. Having hitched its wagon to Golovkin, it makes sense for HBO to televise Geale-Barker with the express purpose of delivering the winner to him. Of course, Zeno’s paradox of motion makes sense, too, but neither it nor the above scenario has anything to do with reality.”
