A TRANS-TASMAN battle is set to break out early next year between New Zealand former heavyweight Shane Cameron and WA's Danny Green, with a tussle for the IBO cruiserweight world title looming.

Cameron's manager, Ken Reinsfield, confirmed his charge would again fight on Green's undercard when he defends his title against American B.J. Flores in Perth on November 17.
Please see bottom for video
Cameron won a 10-round brawl against Australian cruiserweight champion Daniel Ammann before the Green-Paul Briggs fiasco. He entered the ring following the 29sec knockout and issued a challenge to Green.
Reinsfield said Cameron's November opponent had yet to be locked in, but would be a high-quality American and, on the condition both he and Green won, would lead to a bout with the Perth fighter.
"For us, we want that fight against Danny Green and we're looking at the next one after this fight," Reinsfield said.


"They're (Green camp) in agreement with that, if Shane proves himself."
Reinsfield said the Green camp approached Cameron about six months ago to set the collision course in motion.
"We've done everything they've asked," Reinsfield said. "Shane fought Daniel Ammann, the Aussie champ, and beat him. He's now looking at a world-ranked cruiserweight.
"He gets past that and the only thing left is for Danny to put his title on the line.
"We've got huge respect for Dan. In my eyes and in Shane's eyes, he's an absolute warrior and if you want to win a world title, you want to win it off someone who's bloody worthy of winning it off."
Green announced this week that he would take on unbeaten American Flores in Perth, making good on his promise to repay hometown fans after the disappointment of the Briggs fight.
Flores, 31, with a record of 24 wins, 15 by KO, offers Green the toughest battle of his career and is currently ranked No.2 on the IBO cruiserweight listings.
Meanwhile, the most talked about rematch in Australian boxing history is back on the agenda as Green prepares to sit down with Anthony Mundine's management this week.
Green is expected to fly to Sydney on Thursday to talk with Mundine's manager, Khoder Nasser.
"Who knows, if the big man grows his heart back, who knows?" Green said of a possible rematch with Mundine.
But Green has to overcome little known American BJ Flores first before he considers jumping back in the ring to conquer his Mundine demons.
Flores was invited on a promotional tour of Australia by the 37-year-old West Australian, and despite their show of respect for each other, Flores said there would be untold damage when they battle.
"November 17 is going to change my life," Flores said.
"Come November 17, I'm going to knock his head off. He better be ready for that.
"Danny has had 'Dancing With The Stars', he has got his flash cars, his kids college fund all sorted, and I don't have any of that, and now it's my turn to get it."
The Las Vegas resident has an impeccable fight record of 24 wins and 15 knockouts in the cruiserweight division despite starting out as a heavyweight.
It will be Flores' first fight in 13 months come November, despite sparring the world's best heavyweights in that period.
"It's going to be perfect 'cos I feel like he is going to walk right into my punches. He is not used to being hit and feeling the same things as when he is going to fight me.
"And he is not used to hitting people and have nothing happen to them.
"Danny Green has only one style of fighting and he has fought that way his entire career.
"He comes forward and tries to make a brawl/fight out of it, and that's going to play right into my hands 'cos I'm the bigger guy."
Green and Flores have inserted a rematch clause into the contract.
"Yes, there is a rematch clause and it's actually going to be here in Australia," Flores said.
"But that's only if I beat him. Just anticipate a rematch."

Will be interesting after their respective bouts in mid November whether:

1/ Green still holds the title.
2/ Cameron manages to beat a 'high quality American opponent'.

Fighting Cameron would be a step backwards. He should fight Troy Ross. Ross has a good rating with the IBF, Flores has a good rating with the WBA. Cameron has nothing to offer and is just another money grab fight. Atleast if he defeats Flores he lines himselfs up for a shot at the WBA title, if he goes onto fight and defeat Ross then he lines himself up for a shot at the IBF, he already has a top 5 rating with the WBC so then its only a matter of time before he wins a REAL world title that has real mandatory defences, but i suspect if he does this he will soon announce his retirment yet again lol

Then Mandy will call him out and we may see part II Green vs Mandy at a weight between Crusier and Middle.

Have heard a few fringe top 15 Americans mentioned in particular Matt Godfrey (who has been on ESPN many times & fought Marco Huck), but also Adam Richards (Fought Huck), Shawn Hawk, Brian Minto (Also Fought Huck).

Dont think Troy Ross will be part of this at all.

Fighting Cameron would be a waste of time. He is a pub brawler at best. Dud fight!
