Cameron Hopes Barrett Victory Leads To Danny Green

By Chris LaBate

Kiwi boxer Shane Cameron (28-2, 21KOs) is going to make the most of his May 30th bout against Monte Barrett (35-9-2, 20KOs), the man who defeated Cameron's countryman and rival David Tua. The heavyweight bout takes place in Auckland, New Zealand. Cameron wants to erase the taste of his 2009 two round knockout loss to Tua.

"Tua beat me, Tua got beaten by Barrett, but that doesn't mean that I can't beat Barrett," Cameron told Fairfax Media.

If Cameron defeats Barrett, he plans to return to the cruiserweight division for a potential fight in July or August with former IBO champion Danny Green (31-5, 27KOs).

There's a big chance I'll fight Danny Green after this but I needed a fight up until that point because they didn't want to fight until July [or] August. I'm not going to sit around until then so that's where the Barrett fight came in," Cameron said.
