Green inks with DBE, eyes 2009 title shot

PRESS RELEASE: DiBella Entertainment has signed super middleweight contender Allan "Sweetness" Green (26-1, 18 KOs) to an exclusive promotional agreement, it was announced today by DBE president Lou DiBella.


The Tulsa, Oklahoma native Green has so far put forth a 26 victory career with only 1 loss, and 18 victories coming by way of knockout. A talented and experienced boxer/puncher, Green is still only 29 years old. He has already proven that he is a bona fide top contender and he can compete in both the 160 and 168 pound weight classes.


Green's last victory was against Rubin Williams and he holds knockout victories over the likes of Jerson Ravelo, Anthony Bonsante and Donny McCrary.


His brutal 18-second knockout of Jaidon Codrington earned him 2005 KO of the Year Honors from Green stunned Codrington with a left hook and then followed up with 15 unanswered punches. Codrington has since regained top contender form, making Green's performance even more impressive.

"I have tremendous respect for Allan Green's ability and believe he has the tools to be a champion," said DiBella. "I look forward to working with Allan and his advisor, Greg Leon, to make that happen."

"We're looking forward to working with DBE to bring Allan Green to the top of the 160 or 168 pound weight class," stated Leon. "DiBella is one of the best at creating big opportunities and I know that Allan will make the most of his."
