Antonio Tarver Stops Danny Green, Wins The IBO Crown

By Chris LaBate

At the Entertainment Centre in Sydney, Australia, Antonio Tarver (29-6, 20KOs) stopped Danny Green (31-4, 27KOs) within nine rounds to capture the IBO cruiserweight title. Tarver, 42-years-old, dedicated the win to Nick Charles, who recently passed away from cancer.

A feeling out process by both in the first round. In the second round, a left hand sent Danny Green down. He was able to recover well and continued. In the third, Green doing well but getting punished against the ropes in the final minute. The fight continued in the same pattern for the next couple of rounds, with Green allowing Tarver to come forward and box, while he tried to look for power shot counters. The strategy was allowing Tarver to pile up the points.

In the seventh, Green changed his style from boxer to brawler and started coming forward throwing big punches. He was shaking Tarver up to the head and body. The shots to the body were key. They were making Tarver's hands drop and Green would hurt him to the head.

For some reason Green went back to his counterpunching style in the eight, which made the fight shift back to Tarver. In the final ten seconds Green landed a big right hand and Tarver took it well. Green went back to the body in the ninth, trying to go after Tarver but not doing enough. In the final minute, Tarver had a huge barrage of punches as he punished Green against the ropes. Green was nearly gone as the round closed and he wobbled badly back to his corner.

Before the start of the tenth, Green's corner stopped the fight.

In the co-feature, Shane Cameron became the new Commonwealth cruiserweight champion after stopping Dominic Vae in the twelfth and final round. After eleven close rounds, Cameron seemed to be fading but managed to land a massive power shot in the twelfth round. Vae's corner threw in the towel at 1:39 in the round. Cameron's record was raised to 27-2, 21 Kos.

[QUOTE=Dave Rado;10871781]But fighters from the higher divisions rarely made the P4P lists even when they were stacked with talent. Lennox Lewis didn't get into the P4P lists until a year before he retired, and even then the highest he reached…

Love it! Tarver schools Green and has him wobbling around the ring not knowing what hit him :lol1: He doesn't look too bad at Cruiserweight, maybe he'll carry on and try his luck against better opponents.
