Green: I’m Ready for Anything

By Robert Hough

Allan Green (29-1, 20 KOs) said Wednesday that if Andre Ward (21-0, 13 KOs) holds too much in their fight on Saturday, he’ll give up the point and “slam him on his face.” The super-middleweights spoke at an Oakland, Calif., press conference at Oracle Arena, site of the bout which concludes the second round of Showtime’s Super Six World Boxing Classic. Green acknowledged that fighting in California with a California referee—a point of contention for Lou DiBella, Green’s promoter—will give Ward, the WBA title-holder, a small advantage. “His style is to hit and hold and a good referee won’t let a fighter do that all the time, but I’m ready for anything,” said Green, who trained in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area on Wednesday morning. “Whatever Ward wants to do, I’ll have something for him.”
