Come Sunday, June 22nd its time for the big battle at Light Heavyweight as the former Cruiserweight Champion and long time Arena SHO fighter Jaidon Codrington, now fighting for the Krumbsnatcher gym, is moving back down to 175 and challenging his former stable mate, the P4P fighter and undefeated champion Allan Green.

I wish a couple of Codrington's stats were better (you know the ones I mean
) but he's a good fighter although Green knows his weaknesses and that will probably be Jaidon's downfall.
I can either try to fight smart and pray Jaidon doesn't get worn down or I can go for broke and take a risk. Haven't decided what game plan to use yet but Green has to be a massive favourite.

Actually I think Codrington might have what it takes to beat Green.
Rumor going on is that Jaidon once took it to Alexeev in sparring.

Jaidon Codrington has spoken ahead of his world title fight with unbeaten Allan Green and he couldn't have sounded more confident.
"You can put your house on it. Green is losing his belts, losing his unbeaten record. It's a fight I have wanted for a long time and it's something I know is my destiny. I always knew I would one day be world champion in two weight divisions and I also always knew that one day I would beat Allan Green. I used to watch him sparring back at ArenaSHO and I just couldn't believe he was still unbeaten. I think his opponents are beaten before they climb inside the ropes. I think his record leaves his challengers intimidated. Green can't intimidate me. I'm going to beat him up. Believe."

"Ive beaten Butkiss, The Genesis and Deep Freeze and I aint let anybody say all of them were past their best. Just check these fights out and you see it was prospect vs. prime time champion. With Jaidon I will beat a former Cruiserweight champion whos got all the skills in the world but who cannot hang in there with me.
Jaidon keeps saying hes seen the hole in my game. So what does he wanna do? He wants to catch me early? Well I gotta say this... I will try to catch him early and if he tries the same, I will get it done and knock him out in the first round. I dont care about Guzman, Gamboa or anyone, Im the best fighter in the world. And I will prove it. Im the next big thing in boxing."
