Former world middleweight champion Daniel Geale returns to the ring next month to face former Contender winner Garth Wood.

The pair sparred together in preparation for Wood's proposed clash with Englishman last month, before the fight fell through.

Now they will meet for real at the Horden Pavilion in Sydney on February 19.

This will be Geale's first fight since he lost his IBF title to Englishman Darren Barker last August. Before that he defeated Anthony Mundine, a fighter whom Wood has both beaten and lost to.

Favourite Geale admits he is using the fight as a tune-up for a clash with WBA champion Gennady Golovkin in April or May.
