Green-Murdoch set for january in Australia

Press Release: Green Machine Promotions has announced that light heavyweight contender Danny Green will face domestic rival Paul Murdoch at the Netball Centre in Melbourne on Sunday, January 21, 2007. Green, 22-3 with 20 KOs, vs. Murdoch, 25-6-1 with 16 KOs, promises to be an all action affair as two of Australia’s best light heavy weights go toe to toe for a pair of regional titles. A loss will spell disaster for either boxer’s future.  A win for either of these world-ranked fighters will move them up all the association ratings and a step closer to a world title bout. Green last fought in Melbourne in January 2003 when he KO'd Brad Mayo in the first round and is looking forward to the atmosphere and support provided by the locals. Green’s USA agent Don Majeski has been negotiating with the WBA titlist Silvio Branco and reports are that if the Italian is successful in his mandatory defense against Germany’s Stipe Drews, the winner of Green vs. Murdoch will be granted the next title fight against Branco. Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster7 or at http://www.snhc.com.au.
