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

Mundine and Green are two different people entirely. I didn't raise the comparison of Green and Mundine, as Greens actions stand solely on his own merits. What choc does is irrelevant to Greens career, the only point debating is the discrepancy in boxing fans attitudes to the two. One guy gets nailed for his shitty comp, the other guy had a short string of crap matches and should be held accountable

Flores was a good fight. No problems with that.

Tarver is borderline on paper, based on recent form. If it wasnt for Greens injury i would have him comfortably beating Tarver on points. Maybe the operation wasn't as bad as first thought and he still manages to put away tarver. Certainly a possibility. All i said was i think tarver will land a nice counter at some point and shake danny up. Its called an opinion (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dntknw.gif)

I swear, its pretty funny the dudes leaping to defend green. He had 3 suspect fights in a row in my opinion, two clearly dodgy (one very much so), and a third dodgy in retrospect (though should have been clear from the outset, blinded by wishful thinking and nostalgia). Prior to that, Green has had some good fights against relatively decent opposition. Its not like i'm calling a complete sell out... sheesh... And i dont even really blame Green for the Jones fight either. Roy is a big scalp to have on a resume, and given roys prime greatness, it ensures people will remember Green long after he retires. People will always remember how great Roy was, and in turn remember his losses.

Just calling it how i see it. Then Fitz went on the Fritz...

LOL


Well you did make the comparison of the two due to the fights they take by bringing up 3 fights Danny took since coming out of retirement & compared him to Mundine. Jones was caught while cold & old, Siaca didn't want to continue after feelin the heat and Briggs plain simply took a dive. Other than Dominguez and Flores, I agree he hasn't been tested, therefore appears to have 'easy' fights but I don't think it was all his fault. I have already written why I felt it was unfair to compare Green to Mundine in regards to the paths they have taken. Should he be held accountable for his fights? Absolutely, but I would not be prepared to say he takes easy fights just yet, nor compare him to Mundine for a very long time.

Well there must be something wrong with me because Danny didn't drop a couple of notches in my book, but did so in yours (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dntknw.gif) .It is your opinion and can see why you would say it and I respect it! I just gave you mine back & wrote 'why' I don't agree with it or your comparison of Green to Mundine, because I feel Danny would have to take a bunch of shocking fights for the next couple of years to be compared to like that. Just my opinion, not trying to have a go at you either lol.

Anyways, I think this may be another case of people sleeping on Green as I agree he may have what it takes (heart and power) to hurt Tarver at this point of his career. I hope he does too.
