Danny Green Banged Up, Nose Broken, Future is Open

by Chris Pike

Danny Green is in no hurry to decide his boxing future but remains proud that he was only four minutes away from becoming a four-time world title holder before taking a punch from Krzysztof Wlodarczyk that would have 'knocked out a cow'.

Green might have been unsuccessful in challenging for Wlodarczyk's WBC world cruiserweight championship but he was well clear on all three scorecards when the Pole landed a huge left hook.

After his loss to Antonio Tarver in Sydney in July, the former three-time world champion and his trainer Angelo Hyder had prepared perfectly to take on Wlodarczyk.

One punch took care of that.

"With that last punch, not many men would have been able to regain consciousness within a minute let alone stand up within 10 seconds," Green said on Friday.

"I'm proud of the fact that I still was fighting with every ounce of whatever was left in my body to try to win that world title.

"Angelo and I prepared absolutely perfectly for this guy and we dominated the world champion for 10 and a half rounds and then unfortunately that's the sport of boxing. He took me out with a shot that would have knocked out a cow.

"We worked him out better than he worked us out, but unfortunately it just wasn't to be."

Scans on Thursday cleared Green of a fractured jaw and he had more good news in that his previously crooked nose was re-broken and straightened by Wlodarczyk.

The knockout left hook did leave him with several cuts inside his lip that need to be stitched.

Knock out aside, Green's strong performance on Wednesday night gives plenty of support to the argument he should fight on and he doesn't see age as a factor.

"I'm 38-years-old and I outhustled and dominated a 30-year-old," he said.

"Last year I defeated a 30-year-old in BJ Flores, who was undefeated, and then I was beaten by a 42-year-old (Antonio Tarver in Sydney in July), so age means nothing.

"I'd like to walk away still knowing that I can beat the best in the world, but then the competitive side of me says, do I continue?"

[QUOTE=EAAE;11505836]ill tell u why the hate for Green, because while some fighters like to build a career with impressive wins and challenging fights, he has built one on fighting nobodys and has-beens and talking it up like he is fighting…

Green is finished. Don't be fooled by people saying he was dominating the fight until he "got caught". Sure he picked up a few rounds, but that was mainly due to Wlod's lack of activity. Green was totally gassed by…

After that punch that Wlodarczyk k.o.'d him with he needs to retire.
