Green Says He Would Batter Mundine in Rematch

Former world champion Danny Green insists he'll be at peace even if a rematch against arch rival Anthony Mundine never eventuates.

But if the grudge match ever does go ahead, Green says it will only end in one way - with Mundine in tears.

Green hasn't fought since beating Kiwi Shane Cameron over 12 rounds in November, 2012.

Speculation of a Green-Mundine re-match intensified last month after Green met up with Mundine's manager Khoder Nasser.

However, the differential in weight between the two fighters remains the biggest stumbling block, and perhaps a hurdle that may never be overcome.

Green weighed in at 87.1kg before his last fight, while Mundine tipped the scales at 69.9kg in his recent shock loss to Joshua Clottey.

During their first bout in 2006, Green was forced to shed significant weight to meet Mundine's preferred super-middleweight level - a process that left Green fatigued and lacking his trademark power.

Mundine was crowned the winner in a unanimous points decision over 12 rounds.

"I was dead on the scales the night before we fought," Green said.

"If he was any sort of a fighter, he would have knocked me out in two rounds given the condition I was in mentally and physically."

Green would love to avenge that loss to Mundine, but he's not sure if Mundine will ever have the guts to go toe-to-toe with him again.

"He knows the result if we do fight again, and the result ends in tears for him," Green said.

"I've proven I'm a far superior fighter.

"And he knows it, because he hasn't had the balls to step back in and compete in the biggest fight he's ever going to have, apart from that first one.

"Even if we don't fight, I'll be able to look at myself in the mirror 10 years down the track and I'll know I've handled it as a fighter of substance."

Although Green hasn't fought in almost two years, he's been busier than ever.

The West Australian has set up his own gym - Green Zone Fitness - and is also taking part in health events such as Fitness Show WA, which runs from August 16-17 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

"Helping people achieve their own personal goals is very satisfying," Green said.

"Opening a gym was the first step in that process of going to the next phase of my life.

"It's been a real fantastic experience.

"We wanted to create an atmosphere of community and of belonging and of security. All different walks of life are training there.

"The culture is exactly what we wanted."

Shock Loss to Clottey? The dude is a solid B-level fighter that punked a D-level fighter hard. Doesn't matter if Clottey has been "on vacation"
