Jeff Fenech Launches Attack at Danny Green Over Ploys

by Chris LaBate

Three-time world champion Jeff Fenech has launched a verbal attack at his former friend Danny Green. Fenech, who once trained Green, claims the former IBO cruiserweight champion is milking the Australian public and maybe he needs to do the right thing by retiring from boxing.

“He’s been stopped by who he says is the best cruiserweight in the world which he’s far from that if the guys who just beat him is the best I don’t know what that says about Antonio Tarver, it makes him god or something very special, Fenech told SEN Radio.

“Danny is very far from retiring; he can still make money easily. He’s got a great fan base here in Australia, especially in Perth and he’ll continue to milk money off his fans. If I was Danny Green’s trainer I would tell him you’ve got what you’ve wanted. You wanted one unit in Perth - he owns half of Perth now. So maybe it’s time for him to retire.”

When the radio show asked Fenech about his issue with Green, a former student, the veteran refused to reveal the details - for now.

“The story about me and Danny Green will one day come out," Fenech said. “I can’t wait til the truth comes out about why Danny Green and I split and it was nothing to do about money it was just about being loyal and loyalty and that is the main thing I have tried to put in my life.”
