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.

"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.
