Lucian or Hugo would be better but then again Mr Green seems to be cracking up in age.

I found this comment by Tarver about possible weight issues.

GL: You felt that a major part of your problem going into the fight with Hopkins was all the weight you had to lose following the Rocky movie. Now you're fighting at heavyweight so aren't you faced with the same problem?

Antonio Tarver: "You know what? Not in time it wouldn't. I right now have on the table a deal to fight Danny Green at the cruiserweight limit or at a catch weight. I will beat Danny Green and I can meet Hopkins at a catch weight around the 175 pound weight. We still have unsolved history."

GL: When is the Danny Green fight expected to take place?

AT: "We could get it done now, but he's tip toeing around and trying to be his own man to negotiate his own deal, which I respect, but I just don't think my people are going to take that seriously. He's going to have to find himself some business representative and we can get this deal done by the end of the week. I feel like the fight should have happened a while ago, regardless of how people feel and some of the things that have been said, I've never ducked Danny Green period. We had his name on the contract, why didn't the fight go through? He pulled out after the fight was made. But you know what I got goosebumps being around those loyal 16,000 fans from Canada were ridiculous and that's what we need in America. We need for people to understand that boxing is still thriving, we just don't have the support anymore and I don't understand that. These people have their whole area come out to support their fighters. Why can't we have the same kind of support over here?"

GL: Closing thoughts?

Tarver must own the boxset. Maybe he leant it to Hopkins.
