Boxing legend Roy Jones Jr. admits he is expecting a much tougher fight on Wednesday against IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green than he got when he easily defeated former IBF 168 pound champion Jeff Lacy in August. ”It’s a bigger guy coming at me, a stronger guy, a much quicker guy,” Jones stated. “Jeff Lacy was just a kid who really didn’t have an idea what he got himself into, so that was more child abuse.”
Green, meanwhile, thinks that he has been given no chance of winning against Jones by many, but plans to prove them all wrong when he steps into the ring on Wednesday at the Acer arena, Homebush, Sydney, NSW, Australia with a expected live gate of 20,000 and a global television audience. ”Do I think he’s underestimated me? Yes. I think everyone’s underestimated me,” commented Green.
