Green isn't shying away from Tarver rematch
Green announced last week that he would engage in talks with Tarver to seek a rematch in the US before the end of the year after he was stopped for the first time in his career when the American handed out a nine-round beating in Sydney in July.
Last week, Tarver suggested a rematch was more likely to take place in Perth.
But Gary Shaw, who has links with Tarver, told a Sydney newspaper that the rematch clause stipulated a second fight must be held at the same Sydney venue and that Green’s push for a bout in the US was a smokescreen to disguise his reluctance to fight.
“Danny Green won’t fight Antonio Tarver because Danny Green doesn’t want to fight Antonio Tarver,” Shaw said. “It’s exactly why he’s started talking up a fight in the States… Danny Green couldn’t beat Antonio Tarver at home. How’s he going to beat him in America?”
But Green has hit back, claiming Green Machine Boxing would determine where the rematch took place.
“It’s our discretion where the rematch takes place,” Green told www.thewest.com.au. “I’m not sure of Gary Shaw’s involvement (with Tarver) because he wasn’t involved in the last fight. I’m not sure why he’s piped up. I guess everyone loves a winner, so Gary’s back on board.”
Green had been close to sealing a fight with Tarver in 2007 before talks broke down, and he anticipated several more rounds of tough negotiating before a new fight date and location could be set.
“There is a whole myriad of people, who deal with Antonio and his business, and that’s why it’s always very confusing,” Green said. “It’s very difficult to deal with these people.”
