The live webcast on WBCBOXING.TV, that was scheduled to show Daniel Geale vs. Osumanu Adama for free, was being shown around the world against the agreement of Gary Shaw Productions, forcing the stream to be cut off in the U.S. and on the WBCBOXING.TV website.
Gary Shaw states, “The WBC has violated the agreement that was set in place to show the stream live in the U.S .for free. Because the WBC opened up the feed to the World, GSP had to kill the signal. The WBC website was only given permission to stream the feed in the U.S. and opening of the signal to the World created problems. On behalf of GSP, we apologize for the confusion.”
The Daniel Geale fight card from Australia was scheduled to begin at about 3:15 am Eastern on Wednesday, March 7th. Geale successfully defended his IBF middleweight crown without too much hassle, defeating Adama via wide Unanimous Decision. The scores were 118-110, 117-111 and a surprisingly close 115-113.
Hopefully now Geale moves onto bigger and better fights in the division, and hopefully they’ll actually be televised so that we can watch.
