Triple World Champion Danny “The Green Machine” Green held a press conference in Perth Australia to urge young men to end senseless one punch violence. Green was today featured on the front page of The West, the chief newspaper in Western Australia as he hopes the government will use a TV commercial he has made in a campaign against violence and to help educate young men.
Green has made the commercial because of the number of lives ruined by one punch attacks and he feels he is in a position to influence young men who look up to him.
“I’m not trying to preach or tell them what to do, I’m just trying to ask them to take a step back every now and then and think before they act,” Green said. “Hopefully I can get into their ear and they can get into their mates’ heads.”
“There’s been a shift in the way society thinks from the old school values that we were brought up with,” Green said.
Green said reports of young men being maimed by knockout punches were becoming far too common and wants harsher penalties to stop people using gutless and weak “king hits.”
