Middleweight contender Tureano Johnson (18-1, 13 KOs) is now the chief sparring partner for Daniel Geale (31-3, 16 KOs) as he prepares him for his upcoming title clash with Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32 KOs). Johnson  is currently ranked WBC #2, WBA #5, IBF #8 and WBO #13. He gives his thought on sparring with Geale.

“Daniel Geale is a special fighter who possesses a lot of boxing skills,” said Tuerano Johnson.

“He’s looking real sharp in the gym and his power is there. I can feel the snap on his punches and I think Miguel Cotto is in for a big surprise. Everyone is counting Geale out but not me. Gary Shaw brought me in to test Geale’s skills and after a few days of sparring, I believe Daniel will be crowned champion.”

“I brought Tureano to the gym to spar with Geale because he’s a good look to emulate Cotto and he’s one of the top fighters in the middleweight division,” Gary Shaw said. “The feedback I got from Johnson about sparring Geale is very positive. I’m confident that Daniel will use everything in his playbook to come out victorious.”

Tureano Johnson is currently riding a 4-fight winning streak, three of which came by stoppage.
