Cameron Plans To Take The Fight To Danny Green

Boxer Shane Cameron says he's left no stone unturned in his preparations for his cruiserweight world title bout against Australian Danny Green.

Kiwi boxer Shane Cameron has vowed to dictate terms when he battles Australian Danny Green for the IBO cruiserweight belt in Melbourne next week.

The 35-year-old Mountain Warrior gets his shot at a world title in what he describes as the biggest night of his boxing life.

Cameron has dropped from his natural weight of around 98kg to the division maximum of 90.7kg, and will aim to prevent Green from becoming world champion for a fourth time.

"It's a fight I want to dictate," Cameron said.

"I'm not going to let him dictate. I'm going to start at pace. I'm fit enough. I've done the rounds. Twelve rounds is going to be no problem.

"I've been waiting all my boxing career - 15 years - for this day and I'm ready.

"It's coming up pretty fast and I'm not going to let anything get in the way. I've ticked all the boxes in training."

Cameron has a 29-2 record, with most of his fights as a heavyweight.

On November 21, he will seek to be just the second New Zealand-born professional boxer to claim a world crown, after featherweight Billy Murphy in 1890.

"It's not often a Kiwi boy gets to fight for the world title," he said.

"All these things come into play for me. I'm hungry."

Cameron said he had managed to retain his power despite losing the kilos.

It's the fourth time he's making the drop to cruiserweight and, having sought advice from a nutritionist, he described his present regime as being the most effective.

After a sparring workload that was his heaviest before a fight - 80 rounds, with some sessions lasting 12 rounds against three boxers working in rotation - he is confident of going the distance if need be.

"I've never had three sparring partners on one given night and that's got to say something for my fitness and where my head space is," he said.

"I've left no stone unturned. I've done the best I can for this fight in front or me."

I like Danny Green but I really hope Cameron wins this. 122 years is too long for a sporting mad nation to go without a World Boxing Champion.
