So i see this fight is on. Very interesting. Whilst Tarver is passed his best, Green is no spring chicken and returning from surgery that could have ended his career.

Say what you will about the hand wraps, green would have knocked roy out regardless. He has always been a very heavy handed fighter.

Who wins?

Tarvers punch output has never been that good. but he is a good counter puncher, which may cause problems for Greens aggressive style.

I say Tarver by KO

The disgusting effort by Briggs reflecting badly on Green? What about Green fighting him in the first place given how long he had been inactive? That is what reflects badly on him, and is the source of the woeful display in the ring. And its because it was a massive fight in Australia that he overlooked this glaring deficit in the quality of his opponent... presumably for $$$ and name value. A shitty move that deserves criticism. Sorry, you cant fight a "has been" and then dodge the flack when the "has been" doesnt perform. Its a case of "what did you expect was going to happen?" The guy should never have been in the ring in the first place

Bernard knew Jones was a carcass. He took the fight because of his ego, because of the history the 2 shared together, not because the fight was justifiable. A p4p fighter taking on a guy that got absolutely obliterated in 1 round by a relative nobody in his last fight? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes_anim.gif) Thats almost like a floyd mayweather jr bitch move. Bernard took criticism in accepting this fight, and the criticism was justified.


Of course he took the Briggs fight for the money and name value as it was a big fight in Australia. Based on the circumstances it was horrible timing to take the fight and was a horrible decision and did get shit for it. And yes, Briggs taking a dive did reflect badly on Green when many start accusing Danny Green of being involved & many start claiming strings were pulled!

Only by Paul Briggs and perhaps his people did they know he didn't want to be in the ring as his weight and body language showed before the bell rang. Danny Green rightfully so did get criticized for taking the fight, but more so with how the fight ended, which was all on Briggs who not only embarrassed himself for taking a weak ass dive, but put a black mark on Danny Green's name and even more on the sport of boxing.

"What did you expect?" argument gets thrown out alot when discussing this fight. And really..I was expecting a lot more than what Briggs showed. Briggs didn't perform? That's a little generous..the guy took a blatant dive!!

By all means if people want to give Green shit for taking the fight that's fair enough, but it was a one off fight you can criticize him for. But I don't think he should take shit for Brigg's actions inside the ring, because despite having a 3 year lay off, and whatever neurology problems he had, you do not go down by the first fucking punch of the fight landed by a grazing jab like that! How the fuck did he get through a single round of sparring, training for the fight if he really was legit?

Just look at Greens reaction while he was down and after the fight as he was just as surprised as everyone watching and the right decision was made when Paul Briggs and his team were fined and suspended for it. The more I think about it the more I think fuck Paul Briggs the fuckin K9!! LOL!


Agreed. Hopkins would have been better off without taking the rematch from 17 years ago with Jones. I know it was because of his own personal reasons, but he justified it to himself which is bad enough. Instead of a weak, pointless fight doing nothing for his career, it actually hurt it. He would have been better off returning the multiple offers, phone messages and personal messages through his team left personally by Danny Green and taken that fight instead. Beat the guy that beat the guy, not the beatin' down, shot guy on the floor LOL.
