Sakio Bika Eyes Danny Green, Even at Cruiserweight

By Adrian Warren

At least one Australian boxer wants a crack at Danny Green - and for once it's not Anthony Mundine.

Former super middleweight world title contender Sakio Bika has thrown down a challenge to three-division world title winner Green, following the latter's fifth-round stoppage of American Danny Santiago in Perth on Wednesday.

Green, 39, is undecided about whether to continue his illustrious career, though there is talk he could fight WBA light-heavyweight world champion Beibut Shumenov.

When contacted by AAP on Friday, Green said by SMS he had no comment to make on a possible contest with Bika as he was still enjoying this week's victory.

Cameroon-born, Sydney-based Bika, 33, certainly boasts the credentials to be a testing opponent for Green.

He has a creditable 30-5 record, with 21 KOs, with four of those losses to four world champions and the other against tricky Australian Sam Soliman.

Bika shot to prominence by winning The Contender American reality TV boxing show in its 2008 season.

Earlier this month, he underlined his danger factor with a second round stoppage of American Dyah Davis, who had an impressive 21-2-1 record.

While he is currently operating a couple of divisions below Green, Bika is more than happy to step up to an unfamiliar division.

"I'm a super middleweight who can fight at light heavyweight and if he (Green) wants to have a fight at cruiserweight, I can fight at cruiserweight," Bika told AAP.

"If Danny Green is ready to fight one of the best Australians in Australia, let's do it.

"I've had fights on boxing shows on (American cable television networks) Showtime and HBO and people around the world know me."

screw going up to CW Bika is a tough fight for the guys at SMW though he can't beat any of the top guys, but he can test them thought he was considered for a Froch IBF defense he should…

I think if Bika can carry the weight well it would be a good fight. BTW, Bika stopped Davis in the 10th round.

I forgot Bika was an Australian national, it's kind of like Bute being a Canadian national. I think he has a good chance of landing the Froch bout at his preferred weight.
