I don't like either guys public persona with the exaggerated claims of greatness and what i see as quite cynical careers for both since their big match up.
Mate what would a forum be without differing opinions and i can definitely see how people can cringe when green is in the media, it just annoys me a bit when people hope for him to get knocked out or say things such as "this is the first time im rooting against the aussie" as it seems like such an over reaction. I also don't like the claims of greatness but that is self promotion 101, and you will find that the majority of people are quite ignorant for the most part, so any thing that you can twist or manipulate to sound better or sell more tickets is exploited, again im not saying this is right but it is more a reflection of the public than the promoters imo.
