So yours is "exaggerated claims of greatness".

Are the claims from Green or his supporters?

In Mundine's case they are part of his public persona. He likes to polarize boxing fans so they either want to see him get beat or they like him.

Danny Green cast aside the 'humility' act somewhere around the Roy Jones fight. I'm not armed with a stockpile of quotes to defend my opinion but I'm sure I'm not the only one who is aware of it.

That being said I have no problem with anyone being a fair minded supporter of either fighter

Whatever you think of him, he has done pretty well to generate so many sales for this fight, especially given the attention the geale/mundine fight is getting.

I think both bring positives to boxing in Aus. They keep the casual fan interested, which hopefully lifts the profile of other Aussie boxers (and in turn increases the money they make).

However I do agree that the media does not give enough coverage to other Aussie fighters like Geale Katsidis, Bika, Vic ect. who seem to have more profile overseas than here. However, for Geale, fighting Mundine (especially if he wins) win bring him more of a fan base.

I'm currently overseas and it seems to me that Geale's last win didn't get much coverage until the fight with Mundine was announced.

What a fcking hypocrite you are ya maggot. You cry when someone brings up Danny in a Mundine post yet here you are bringing up Mundine in a Green post. Mundine has NOTHING On your idol for the fckwit of the century award. Your Idol has cheated the sport so much, back flipped, lied and got in bed with a corrupt orgnisation. Dont matter how much polish you put on Danny and how much sht you throw at Mundine, at the end of the day Danny is always going to be a dirty stinking TURD! Just like you BRUAGIRL!

Also, if any of the posters on here were in greens pr team, what would they have done after the briggs fiasco to control the damage? everybody loves to criticise but i haven't seen many alternatives as to what he did, which is preserve a little dignity for himself and the opponent.
U dont know everything mate, resonable purses my ass. What he has done is worse than Mundine making undercard fighters sell tickets. Go talk to someone in the know and you will discover the truth.

I have no problem with Green's last three opponents and believe that Cameron will be a tough fight. Would not be shocked if Cameron wins this at this stage of Green's career.

This Mundine Green thing is like the Ford Holden rivalry! I believe both have stepped up in their next fights and both are quite likely to lose. Will be watching both!
Look at Camerons opponent level CW and how he's looked against them. Green won't lose.
