Danny Green Plans To Continue His Boxing Career

By Mark Vester

IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green plans to continue his career. Green's career was in doubt after going through emergency abdominal surgery in January to remove his appendix and a large abscess. He last fought in November with a twelve round decision over BJ Flores. He recently tested himself with a six-round sparring session against heavyweight Pieter Cronje. His performance convinced him to continue his career.

“Unless something radical happens, I’m back,” Green told AFP. [Cronje] is a big, strong guy and he took it to me and I was actually surprised with some of the shots I was landing on Pete. A couple of shots hurt [me]. They didn’t look like they were much. They weren’t really big shots but a couple of them stung where the scars are.”

I was actually surprised how easy he out boxed BJ Flores, now I don't know if that's due to the fact that BJ is a complete flaw as a boxer, but nevertheless well done. Would be interesting if he fights…
