Re: Apparently Green and Tarver in heavy negotiations
Dumb question - how does Green offering 100% of US TV revenues help if the fight is in Perth? That would mean the fight would be on at 9 in the morning stateside - I've never heard of any fight being on that early. I guess they could show it on tape delay, but Showtime probably wouldn't pay as much for a delayed fight.
In any case, Tarver is on his way down, and Green might have a shot if he can keep his chin out of the way. Tarver's a stronger puncher than Adamek, so if he tries to brawl too much, I can see Tarver winning by TKO. On the other hand, Green throws harder punches than anyone Tarver's faced recently, and can do some damage himself. I'd give Tarver a slight edge, but it's a closer fight than most American pundits would give it credit for, and it should be an exciting match either way, so I hope it happens.
