New Commonwealth cruiserweight boxing champion Shane Cameron has again expressed a desire to fight Danny Green, but said any potential bout wouldn't take place until next year after damaging his hand again, according to a recent interview with New Zealand Stuff.
Cameron was crowned the Commonwealth champion in Sydney on Wednesday night after a brutal twelfth round stoppage of Australian rival Dominic Vea. The win should have set up a clash between Cameron and Green for the IBO title, but Antonio Tarver spoiled those plans when he stopped Green in nine rounds on the same event. Cameron still wants to face Green, but likley not until next year after a possible break in his right hand.
"What happens now? Well, I've done my business inside the ring and now it comes down to managers doing their job outside the ring," he said. "The Green camp obviously needs the dust to settle after Danny's loss."
"I don't know what I've done to my hand but there's something wrong with it and I need to get an X-ray on it. Hopefully I haven't broken it again but it does feel like I have. But that's OK. It will only put things back a little bit and I don't think I'll be fighting again this year.
"A fight between Danny and me would still be a massive draw. I'm the champion at the moment; I've got the Commonwealth title and if he wants that he can come and fight me for it."
