Perhaps a second letter, a letter of apology regarding his upcoming opponent, might be in order too though mate.
Why would he even bother writing it though mate? If it is to clear his own name, chalk one up for Roy. He got knocked out, still gets the Hopkins fight whilst Green sits in front of a type writer pleading his case that he didn't cheat.
Anyway, it was probably written by his PR people and the Daily Telegrpah ran with it as they love to with anything Green. Deflects attention away from the Siaca fight which they obviously know is a farce that cannot be hyped.
Fighters make excuses and talk bs all the time. Nothing new here so it just comes off as pitiful as Roys excuses.
Roys probably happy he wrote it. Might mean a few extra buys for his fight this weekend.
