DiBella to promote Green? Maybe. Rafael still writing lies? Definitely

Dan Rafael continues to put his foot in his mouth, again proving that he knows even less about boxing than he does about eating nutritiously. Each lie that ESPN.com allows him to print becomes another paragaph of a letter to ESPN.com that will be posted on Boxingtalk's front page in the coming days. Today Rafael writes that world class super middleweight Allan Green "blew" a $450,000 to fight Kelly Pavlik. The FACT is Allan Green accepted a $450,000 offer to fight Kelly Pavlik, but HBO would not approve the bout, therefore Arum instead went with the Hopkins fight, which he had obviously been negotiating. There was a pop 'em size bit of truth in Dan's little blurb, which also mentioned recent discussions that Lou DiBella and Tony Holden have been having that will likely conclude with DiBella Entertainment becoming the lead promoter of Allan Green.
