Hi Roy,

It's Danny here. I have for months listened to an endless series of excuses and false allegations that you and your camp have made in the media and on the internet as to the reasons why I beat you in our fight last December.

It is now time that I had my say and let the public know the truth about you and what went on in the fight.

December 2, 2009, is a night in my life that cannot ever be tarnished.

It is a night that featured one of the greatest sporting upsets in my great country's proud history - one for the battler and the underdog.

I was a 5/1 outsider to lose to you Roy, so much so that you had begun counting your money from the upcoming Bernard Hopkins rematch you so arrogantly flaunted while on your seemingly "done-deal" trip Down Under to collect a payday against a sure thing.

Start of sidebar.



Just like the title of one of your hip-hop albums Roy, "Y'all musta forgot" that I am not just an easybeat opponent with the power and hunger that I possess, and now you know that, mate. The smile still creases my face at the thought of those glorious 122 seconds that made a nation cheer.

You said immediately after the fight the better man won and held up my hand as the victor. But since that night you have offered one sorry excuse after another as to why I beat you, including to your eternal discredit falsely alleging that I cheated.

It's time for you to face the facts.

The day after the fight you complained the referee stopped it early.

C'mon Roy, did you want to leave the stadium in an ambulance?

The referee acted to protect you, as he was required to after 46 unanswered punches.

When you returned to America you complained that the gloves we gave you to use were not satisfactory.

Roy, it's time you looked hard at not getting hit in the head ever again mate - you supplied and used your own gloves.

You then alleged that my hand wraps were illegal, as I had wrapped them to make an illegal cast to hit you with. This is a low blow as you are saying that I cheated to beat you.

Given your lies it is time the facts came out:

* THE hand wraps were the same wraps I used in five previous world title fights, in Germany, Montreal, Australia and even in the fight in Mississippi that set our blockbuster bout up, under your own governing body's jurisdiction;

* MY hand wraps were personally inspected by three independent inspectors of the NSW Combat Sports Authority and they each certified that my wraps were legal and gave me no advantage whatsoever. They did this by visual inspection and by physical inspection to confirm that the bandaging was soft;

* IN an attempt to unsettle me before the fight, your representatives in my dressing room specifically complained to the independent inspectors about the hand wraps and the inspectors inspected them again and ruled that the wraps were fine;

* YOUR complaint that you have been denied due process is embarrassing. Your complaint was ruled upon before the fight by the independent inspectors and found to be baseless. You have no more right to challenge that decision after the fight than a decision of the referee;

* WE had expert opinion from international boxing icons coming to my defence, agreeing your complaint was nothing but sour g****s; and

* THE only people who are suggesting that there was any problem with my wraps are people in your camp, who would also profit from you continuing to fight.

Roy, you know how the age-old saying goes - the mark of a true champion is how they accept defeat.

When the time came for you to stand up and show the world what type of champion you were, well, let's just say, you sat down.

You then flew back to America and went into damage control in an attempt to salvage the Hopkins rematch that had now been derailed due to your annihilation.

It's obvious you were clutching at straws, but it was to my detriment. You got a lot of mileage out of those allegations, so much so that the Hopkins fight is going ahead. It is now time for you to stand up again and to stop the excuses, as it is damaging your reputation and spoiling your legacy. It is time for you to be a man and accept that the better man beat you on the night.

My coach and I dissected your game punch by punch, and I did a number on you that memorable night.

It is time for you to accept your defeat like a true champion rather than as a sore loser. You may have secured yourself another payday by carrying on, but one thing you can never do is erase the utter jubilation and cherished memories from the night an underdog took down a legend.

Thanks for the opportunity, Roy.

Regards, Danny

What is it that they say about glass houses and stones?

What a hypocrite He was cornered on FSN yesterday when one of the guys on the panel asked him why he targeted Siaca when he was ranked 58th, he paused and then proceeded to go on about how you can't take anyone lightly and look at what happened to him and Roy in their fight.

Danny's really taking advantage of the naive audience boxing has in this country.

Danny Green to me is as full of **** as Choc and I dont like him. I do however agree with him here. I dont think he cheated against RJ.

Maybe Mundine can type a similar letter to Green about their fight, asking for Green to shut up and take his lumps.

Roy is grasping at straws and he got a Bhop payday out of it. Big deal...he did well. LOL

Danny knows the boxing business better than anyone. The only person here in damage control is Green. Not surprised he releases this...deflects from the embarrassment of fighting Siaca.

Well worded and factual.

RJJ should have taken it on the chin and moved on straight away - instead he chose to draw it out!

Get over it Roy, ya got beat fair & square!

Are we not over all this rubbish from December yet? I know i am.

I agree Danny probably didn't cheat but don't talk to Roy like he's a little boy. Roy had to save face somehow and nobody in the states knows Green so he wld get a bit of support out of the allegation.

Anyway i hope Roy can go ok against Bhop and force another Green fight.

Tend to agree here.....unheralded is a bit tough....I guess they are talking from the US media perspective on popularity.

Destroyed Beyer? Beyer came back after the first fight arguably a better fighter.

Jones was the one who carried on like a sook and prolonged what was an absolute non-issue.

Green has just waited til Jones' moaning stopped before he added his two bobs worth.

46 unanswered punches my ass, he was hitting gloves and trying to pull Roys head down, Green's lucky the ref stopped the fight then.

A test of a true champion is how he handles defeat? How did Green handle losing to Beyer, Mundine? He handled it like a punk, making excuses and blaming other people.

I wouldn't put it past Green using every dirty trick he could to win a fight, after reading his book I realised he was a classless lowlife on top of being a ****head, just a ****ing egocentrical neanderthal. It's a stereotype of boxers but he really is as dumb as a pile of bricks.

Roy was done Lefty and the referee saved him from an absolute panelbeating.

...there was no complaint whatsoever from Roy at the time of the stoppage because he knew he was done!
