Jones Camp protests Green fight

Roy Jones Jr. is seeking to have his first round TKO loss to IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green reversed. The Jones Camp is asking the NSW Combat Sports Authority to disqualify Green, alleging that Green’s handwraps contained “an adhesive (polyamide substrate with latex coating) that allows the wrapping to be stretched and secured tightly with a hardening effect.” An appeal will also be made to the IBO. The Green Camp has already dismissed these allegations in a December 18 interview with Fightnews.com’s Craig Watt. “I have heard these allegations and to be honest its just sour grapes,” said Justin Manolikos the CEO of Green Machine Promotions. “Danny stopped him fair and square.” Green added, “I must have hit Roy harder than I had thought.”
