Green Confident His Skills Will Be Too Much For Cameron

Australian boxer Danny Green says his superior pace, accuracy and power will nullify Shane Cameron's bully tactics in their world title fight.

Fighting for his fourth world title, boxer Danny Green expects his bigger Kiwi opponent Shane Cameron to try to bully him when they clash at Melbourne's Hisense Arena next Wednesday night.

But such tactics hold no fear for the 39-year-old West Australian, who believes his superior pace, accuracy and power will nullify such tactics.

The pair will duel for the IBO cruiserweight world title which became vacant after American Antonio Tarver, who beat Green to win the title last year, was stripped when he tested positive to a banned steroid taken before his next fight.

Natural-born heavyweight Cameron (29 wins, 22KO, two losses) has shed seven kilos to make the agreed weigh-in of 89kg to take on Green (32 wins 28KO, five losses) but says he's retained his force.

In Cameron's last fight in July in Auckland, he spectacularly sent American Monte Barrett to the canvas in the fourth round with a wicked right hand.

Cameron, 35, reckons Green will need a baseball bat if he's to stop him taking the title across the Tasman but Green says he has plenty of his own weapons.

"I think he expects to be able to dominate and bully me," Green told AAP on Wednesday.

"I don't know whether Shane realises I'm pretty strong inside as well.

"I expect him to be on the offensive, coming forward trying to bully me ... I'm not too fussed about going toe to toe because I feel my accuracy is superior."

It's been rumoured this fight will be Green's swan song before retirement and, while he didn't rule out the idea, said he wasn't set to make any announcement.

"I'm just really focusing on having my hand raised in victory after the fight.

"It could well possibly be my last fight but I just want to win the fight and who knows? ... I've learnt never say never."

Green shifted his training base from Perth to Melbourne more than four weeks ago and, with a week to go as he tapers, said he can't wait for his wife Nina and kids Chloe and Archie to arrive.

"It will be like an injection of super power for me having them arrive," he said.

"I'm a real hands-on dad so it's been hard but my preparation has been fantastic.

"Shane's leaving his environment at a crucial time which will be tough."
