Green & Tarver Twitter War

Posted by: Brett Bonetti | 22 September, 2012 - 11:52 AM
'Them's fighting tweets' A war of tweets has broken out between Danny Green and Antonio Tarver. Read more here.

Following the announcement of the Danny Green (32-5, 28 KO’s) and Shane Cameron (29-2, 22 KO’s) fight for the vacant IBO World Cruiserweight Title, the former holder of the belt Antonio Tarver initiated a Twitter exchange between he and Green.

 

Tarver: "great that gives me another paid vacation to Australia"

 

Green: "yeah cool Antonio sounds great, bring ya box of steroids too.

 

Tarver: "Danny I can box you one weekend and Shane the next cause you couldnt hit me,"

 

Green: "it'll have to b on play station mate cause that's the only fight you'll have again after getting BUSTED for steroids. C ya."

 

Tarver: "Danny get out now before you get seriously hurt...",

 

Green: "thnx for your concern. You keep tweetn, and u r a smooth talker, but u cldnt talk ya way out the drug test huh?"

 

The IBO Cruiserweight belt is vacant because Tarver was stripped of the title after he tested positive for the Anabolic Steroid Drostanolone following his split decision draw with Lateef Kayode on June 2 this year.

 

Tarver was the subject of many questions this week.

 

Green has no idea whether Antonio Tarver was on steroids and said it was possible Tarver "dodged a bullet" as neither man was drug tested at their fight in Sydney in July last year.

 

Green said had felt that Tarver's sudden and dramatic weight loss prior to that bout was unusual.

 

"Who knows? We had photos and he was next to the front rowers of the New South Wales State of Origin Rugby League Team, and he dwarfed them," Green said.

 

"The disparity in weight was plain to see, and the fact eight weeks later he made the weight and maintained strength throughout the fight, who knows? He wasn't tested”

 

"I lost the world title, Antonio Tarver beat me, and I had a shocking night, it’s history, but now I get the chance to get my title back." Green said

 

"It's bad for Tarver, bloody good for me,'' Cameron said of his opportunity to fight for the title.

 

"I'm fighting a three time world champion so that is not to be sneezed at" Cameron said.

 

"Danny Green has beaten the likes of Roy Jones Jr, so he has beaten the best, it certainly won't be a walk in the park for me, but as much as I respect the man and what he has achieved, I am very confident of taking care of Danny Green."

 

"It is any boxer's dream, it's always been my dream to fight for the championship of the world and I’m looking forward to it, I want to bring that title back to New Zealand."

 

The Green Machine is aiming to become a 4 time world champion.

 

Danny Green vs Shane Cameron, promoted by Green Machine Boxing, Wednesday November 21 at Hisense Arena, Melbourne.
