Green eyes re­turn to ring

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

‘‘ LOOK, un­less some­thing rad­i­cal hap­pens, I’m back.’’ With that sim­ple state­ment, IBO cruis­er­weight world cham­pion Danny Green de­clared his in­ten­tion to fight again. Green con­sid­ered walk­ing away from the sport af­ter un­der­go­ing emer­gency surgery in Jan­uary to re­move an ab­scess the size of a soft­ball on his ap­pen­dix – an or­deal that saw him shed 12kg. But af­ter mak­ing it through a tough six-round spar­ring session against heavy­weight Pi­eter Cronje yes­ter­day, Green was con­vinced his body could still han­dle the rigours of pro­fes­sional box­ing.
