Wlodarczyk: I'm Going To Hit Green Harder Than Tarver!

Polish world cruiserweight boxing champion Krzysztof Wlodarczyk is in Perth preparing for his November 30 title defense against Danny Green and has warned the Australian veteran that he will be coming out hitting harder than Antonio Tarver.

The 30-year-old WBC world cruiserweight champion has signalled his intention to also claim the WBO, WBA and IBF titles so the next logical step is for him to retain his belt next Wednesday night at Challenge Stadium against Green before moving on.

Green is coming off a loss to American Tarver in July, when his corner threw in the towel after nine rounds.

That was the first time that the 38-year-old Perth-native had been stopped in his career in what was just his fourth loss from 35 fights.

Wlodarczyk is eight years the junior of Green, though, and boasts an enviable record of 45-3, with 32 of his wins being inside the distance.

Speaking through his interpreter and manager Andrzej Wasilewski on Monday in Perth, Wlodarczyk said he will be hitting Green much harder than Tarver did.

"I punch much stronger than Tarver does because Tarver was not cruiserweight, he was a light heavyweight as a champion," said Wlodarczyk, who likes to go by the Spanish name Diablo, or Devil.

"I am up for this fight. Sparring and training has been very sharp, and my fitness is absolutely perfect."

While Wlodarczyk is backing himself in to get the job done, he does respect the West Australian.

"He is quick, brave and he likes a real fight.

"He is dangerous right to the last moment of each fight."
