Roach: Kayode Wants The Tarver vs Green Winner

By Ryan Burton

Team Lateef Kayode will be paying close attention to the showdown between IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green and Antonio Tarver that takes place on July 20 in Green's native Australia.  Kayode is trained ny none other than Freddie Roach. The world renown trainer would love to see his pupil face the Green-Tarver winner.

Roach said, "We respect them both. Best of luck to both of them. We want the winner. Kayode will beat either one."

Kayode and Tarver both fight under Gary Shaw Promotions. If Tarver pulls off the upset a Tarver-Kayode match would be easy to make.

"Gary Shaw (also) has Tarver so if he wanted to he could make it happen."

Kayode is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Matt Godfrey on June 10th.

Interesting, I don't think he is ready for either but I also didn't think he was ready for Godfrey, to be fair though no one could have predicted how passively he would turn up in that fight.
