Green keen to face Mundine again! By Brett Bonetti

Monday, April 16
April 13, 2012 Three Time World Champion Danny “The Green Machine” Green (31-5, 27 KOs) held a press conference in Perth today and says he is keen to take on Anthony “The Man” Mundine (43-4, 25 KO’s) in a blockbuster re-match. Yesterday, Mundine said that he was contemplating taking on Green again and that he was prepared to give away 10kg if that what it takes to prove he is the best. Mundine made the comments after deciding not to challenge WBA Light Middleweight champion Austin Trout for his title. "I'm not going to fight a guy like Austin Trout who is laughable because he's really a nobody.” “If he came with a name and came with some pulling power, I would fight him, but I'm not going to let him use me and take my money.” Mundine said. Green says Mundine has finally come to his senses and realised he has nowhere else to go if he wants to nail down a big money bout. "My main concern is if Choc is going to back up what he said yesterday," Green said. "Is he prepared to back up what he says and actually take on the biggest fight that is out there in the world for him, that is right here in Australia against myself?" The Green Machine is confident he can reverse the result from the last time the pair met in Sydney in 2006 and wants to square the ledger. “He got me first time fair and square, and I tip my hat to the guy, he won the fight, and that’s it, he hit me more than I hit him, but a lot’s happened since then, and I think I’ve become a far better fighter.” Green said "I’ve come a long way as a fighter since that first fight. I think Choc’s come a long way too.” "He’s come to his senses and he realises he needs a scalp like mine if he’s to get the worldwide recognition as a great fighter, and he wants that. He’s a proud guy as well." "He threw out the line yesterday that he's prepared to give away 10kg to make the fight happen and prove he's the best and I've had a lot of calls and a lot of interest since then, so I'm here replying saying if you want to put on the biggest fight this country has ever seen and you want to back your mouth up, then I'm here and ready to go." Green said The weight issue has been seen as one of the major stumbling blocks preventing a second fight between the pair. "Our careers have gone in different paths since that first fight, the fighters I've fought and titles I've won, and I think Choc realises that," Green said Green moved up in weight to capture the WBA Light Heavyweight and IBO Cruiserweight Titles and took on the likes of Roy Jones Jr, Antonio Tarver and Krzysztof Wlodarczyk, while Mundine dropped down in weight fighting at Middleweight and Light Middleweight and holds a victory over current IBF Middleweight Champion Daniel Geale. The first Mundine vs Green fight was the biggest Australia has seen as far as numbers and a second fight may be bigger and better than the first one.
