Green Jabs Mundine Over Lackluster Vegas Ticket Sales

Three-time world champion Danny Green says he will sit back and enjoy a few stubbies before deciding on whether to extend his boxing career.

After partying all night following his knockout win over Danny Santiago on Wednesday, three-time world champion Danny Green will party some more before deciding on his boxing future.

Green's fifth-round demolition of Santiago was the West Australian's final bout in Perth and the 39-year-old is yet to decide whether to extend his glittering career.

In all likelihood, Green will have at least one more bout before hanging up the gloves, with a match-up against 28-year-old WBA light heavyweight champion Beibut Shumenov on the cards.

But for now Green just wants to relax and enjoy his latest triumph, which took his record to 32 wins (28KO) and five losses.

"There's been some offers but who knows," Green said on Thursday.

"I'm not going to make any decisions now.

"I'm just going to chill and relax and have a few cans and just be a normal bloke and live."

Australian boxing fans would love nothing more than for Green to take on arch rival Anthony Mundine.

But a rematch appears highly unlikely, with Mundine fighting at around 14kg lighter than Green and pursuing options in the US.

Not that it bothers Green, who said he would much rather win another world title than take on Mundine again.

"You look at Mundine and you look at a world title - there's no comparison," Green said.

"Mundine sold 286 tickets to his last fight in Las Vegas - the Mecca of boxing.

"They didn't even pay for the bus fare.

"I'm not being disrespectful, that's just how it is."

Green conceded it had been tough coping with recent losses to Krzysztof Wlodarczyk and American Antonio Tarver.

But he had no trouble against Santiago, who was felled three times before hitting the canvass for the fourth and final time in the fifth round following a flurry of left hooks from Green.

Green thanked the Perth fans for standing by him through thick and thin over the years, and also heaped special praise on his trainer Angelo Hyder.

"I'm pretty blessed to have such a genius in Angelo Hyder in my corner. I couldn't ask for a better guy," Green said.

"It's been a tough road, I haven't always won my fights. Wednesday night was a high."
