Green awaiting Tarver decision

By Brett Bonetti

Former IBO cruiserweight world champion Danny “The Green Machine” Green has warned Antonio Tarver that he will not “hang around forever” as negotiations between Green Machine Boxing and Tarver’s camp for a rematch continue to drag on. Green is willing to go to the US for the rematch, however Tarver recently suggested that a rematch would likely happen in Green’s hometown of Perth.

“I want to go and fight in America, and he’s saying how big a deal and how big a name he is there, so I don’t see why he wouldn’t want to,” Green said. “Unless he’s not much of a big deal back home?” “Maybe he’s talking it up and he really isn’t much of a big deal? But he said it, he said Showtime wants to do it, he’s talking about having a hometown fight in Orlando, so it makes sense,” Green said. (more…)

Vitali provokes Adamek

Photo: Mike Gladysz

The Team of Tomasz Adamek has accused Vitali Klitschko of “a blatant continuation of his ongoing attempt to bait Adamek” during a public workout Wednesday in Wroclaw, Poland. According to information from Adamek’s promoter Main Events, Klitschko breached the security agreement his own team designed regarding the open workout. Klitschko allegedly skipped his own grand entrance in favor of an intimidation tactic that the Adamek camp says clearly did not affect the Polish favorite.

Arriving in the middle of Adamek’s public workout, Klitschko sat with his entourage at ringside to observe the simple demonstration Adamek performed for his fans. Adamek did not feel it necessary to reciprocate by remaining for Klitschko’s workout.

The art at the right is the work of Eduardo De La Cruz, a Mexican artist who in the United States is known for his lithographs of various personalities of sports and entertainment. Most recently at the 48th WBC Convention which was held in Cancun, Mexico, Eduardo was named “Artist of the KO.”
