NXT Recap: 24th July 2014


A return to Full Sail University promises an edition of NXT with championship implications. The main event features NXT Champion Adrian Neville, who was absent from last week’s taping, when the spotlight shone firmly on the pairing of Sami Zayn and Tyson Kidd – undoubtedly two of his primary challengers. However, tonight would arguably bring his most challenging opponent yet, as he would go one-on-one with the Bulgarian Brute, Rusev, in a non-title match. After running roughshod on RAW and Smackdown, Lana leads her personal wrecking ball to Florida, and he immediately challenges the best that it can offer. But, would the Red Arrow be enough to halt the Super Athlete’s streak?

The NXT Women’s Championship will be on the line also, as Summer Rae combats her former BFF Charlotte after earning her shot by defeating Bayley two weeks prior. Will the former beau of Fandango take the precious belt from the “Nature Girl”, and possibly bring Sasha Banks back too? Also, the tag team champions Ascension will be in action, likely be demolishing

Golovkin heavier than Geale

Gennady Golovkin: Inside the 160lb limit for bout with Daniel Geale

Gennady Golovkin: Inside the 160lb limit for bout with Daniel Geale

Gennady Golovkin tipped the scales just over half a pound heavier than Australian Daniel Geale ahead of the pair’s WBA middleweight showdown in New York on Saturday.

WBA champion Golovkin scaled 159.8lbs, while Geale came in at 159.2lbs for the title fight at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, live on Sky Sports.

Knockout specialist Golovkin comes into the contest boasting an undefeated record of 29 wins from 29 fights, with 26 of those victories coming inside the distance.

But the Kazakh fighter faces a potentially difficult opponent in former IBF champion Geale who has lost just twice in his 32-fight career – one of those coming to Barnet boxer Darren Barker.

Saturday’s co-featured bout sees unbeaten heavyweight prospects Bryant Jennings and Mike Perez battle it out in a WBC title eliminator.

Philadelphia fighter Jennings goes into the fight as the lighter man, with Cuban Perez weighing in almost 20lbs heavier than his opponent.

Selby stunned in opener

Andrew Selby: penalised two points for losing his gumshield

Andrew Selby: penalised two points for losing his gumshield

World No 1 Andrew Selby suffered another Commonwealth Games nightmare as he was beaten by Motherwell 19-year-old Reece McFadden in a fiery flyweight first-round clash in Glasgow.

The double European champion from Barry was deducted two points in the last round for losing his gumshield as the irresistible McFadden did enough to seal by far the best win of his short career.

Selby, who also boasts two world championship medals in his collection, was also shocked in Delhi four years ago when he dropped a verdict to Amir Khan’s brother Haroon.

“Everything went wrong in the third round,” said Selby. “As soon as the bell went, it all went out of the window.

“I had my gumshield specially made and I’ve worn in at every tournament I’ve been in in the last four years and it’s never come out.

“I’m in the best shape of my life and I don’t know what went wrong. Maybe he just took me by surprise and he deserved the win.”

Selby’s defeat was another major blow for the Welsh boxing team following the decision by Games authorities to deny accreditation to his team-mate Fred Evans.

But it was a significant moment for McFadden, who rose to the occasion to out-hustle Selby in the opening round and maintain a tough momentum throughout.

Selby won the second to claw the scores back level and the messy last was rendered irrelevant by the points deductions, which effectively sealed McFadden’s shock win.

Selby showed his frustration in the dying seconds by launching himself at McFadden, who celebrated at the final bell.

The Scot, who will next face England’s Charlie Edwards, said: “I’ve fought some tough boys but he was the toughest I’ve fought in my life.

“The gold medal is mine. I’ve just proved it against the world number one and I’ll beat Charlie Edwards next. Hopefully he’ll keep his gumshield in.”

Fury rules out Chisora rematch

Tyson Fury: Will instead face Alexander Ustinov

Tyson Fury: Will instead face Alexander Ustinov

Tyson Fury told Dereck Chisora to forget about a rematch ahead of his weigh-in with late replacement Alexander Ustinov.

Chisora was due to face his domestic rival on Saturday, but he pulled out this week with a broken hand and Ustinov will instead face Fury in Manchester this weekend.

The Wilmslow man reacted angrily to the late withdrawal of his opponent, who he defeated on points back in 2011, and is not interested in a rearranged second bout.

Fury, who tipped the scales at 18st 5lbs, told a press conference: “Chisora had his opportunity and fluffed it up for whatever reason. Now I want Bermane Stiverne, the WBC champion, because at least I know he will fight.

“I am not going to keep giving someone opportunities when I know they are not going to take them, like with David Haye.”

David Haye also twice withdrew from scheduled fights against the unbeaten 25-year-old, who doubts whether a dream fight with WBA, IBF and WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko will ever materialise.

The Belarussian, weighing in at 20st, has suffered just one defeat in 30 fights – a stoppage against Klitschko’s latest challenger Kubrat Pulev.

Geale: No Golovkin concerns

Daniel Geale: Returned with a win in February

Daniel Geale: Returned with a win in February

Daniel Geale insists there are no lingering doubts in his mind ahead of this Saturday’s world title clash against fearsome puncher Gennady Golovkin.

The Australian will challenge Golovkin for the WBA ‘super’ middleweight title at Madison Square Garden in New York, live on Sky Sports.

Geale faces an unbeaten opponent, considered the No 1 in the division, with explosive punch power that has brought him 26 stoppages in 29 wins.

But the New South Wales man insists he is brimming with self-belief after an extensive training camp and is excited about battling one of the sport’s best fighters at the famous American venue.

“I’m going into the fight confident,” Geale told the Sydney Morning Herald. “It’s true what everyone says, you have to believe in yourself, and that’s what me and my team have done.

“We’ve trained hard. I have the opportunity to fight a world champion and take some world titles off him and to also get a chance to fight at Madison Square Garden is a dream fulfilled.

“If you go into the fight worried about what he can do; the big KO punch or he can do this, can do that, you can be beaten before you enter the ring.

“I’m going in certain if I fight the way I know I can, I can win this. I have a confidence that I can do it.”

The 33-year-old’s IBF title was ripped away by Darren Barker last August after the Barnet man climbed from the canvas to claim a courageous points win.

But Geale rebuilt with a stoppage win over compatriot Garth Wood in February and feels he deserves a shot at Golovkin after 30 victories and just two defeats.

“Golovkin, you dream of fights like this,” he said.

“I had my goals set very high, even as a young boxer, because I wanted to achieve a lot. I can’t say I’m completely surprised this has happened because I’ve worked my entire life to be in this position. If you have a plan, you shouldn’t be surprised when it comes off.”

You can watch Golovkin v Geale live on Sky Sports 1, from 1.30am on Sunday morning, with Tony Bellew and Jamie Moore in the studio and Matt Macklin on co-commentary.

Smith: It’s my time now

Paul Smith: Enthusiastic ahead of WBO title tilt

Paul Smith: Enthusiastic ahead of WBO title tilt

Paul Smith is relishing the chance to fulfil his world title dream by toppling WBO super-middleweight champion Arthur Abraham when the pair meet in Kiel, Germany on September 27.

Paul Smith feels it’s his time

The 31-year-old Liverpudlian has been handed the shot in the wake of May’s impressive second-round stoppage of David Sarabia and is determined to complete a remarkable journey by upsetting the odds in front of Abraham’s home fans.

Smith has three blemishes on his record – falling to Steven Bendall, James DeGale and George Groves – but insists he has never been in better shape having fully recovered from the broken hand he first suffered in 2008.

He told Sky Sports News: “I just think everything’s in the right place for me at the minute. I believe things are written and I’ve always known deep down in the back of my mind that I’ll fight for and win a world title.

Gameplan

“The injury I had to my hand was a bad one. I needed an operation, got an infection and was out for a long time. I gained a lot of weight and was out of shape.

“It’s been a long road back but the lads, my brothers, Joe Gallagher and the kids in the gym, my son, my wife, my parents, got round me and I was able to come back again.”

“It’s been a long road back but the lads, my brothers, Joe Gallagher and the kids in the gym, my son, my wife, my parents, got round me and I was able to come back again.

“He’s got a lot of ability and a lot of experience but the gameplan that we’ll have will undo him. The fitness, strength and experience I’ve got myself should stand me in good stead. I’ve got a good boxing brain and I think that’ll be needed.”

Abraham, 34, has lost four times to top-level opponents in Robert Stieglitz, Carl Froch, Andre Ward and Andre Dirrell.

You can see Smith’s attempt to become world champion live on Sky Sports HD, 8pm, September 27.
