Default Green & Mundine...how did it begin?

Does anyone know what was said or done to start the ongoing feud between these two? Who started it? Or is it just all about money?
Most people will tell you how good a bloke both Mundine and Green are outside of the ring, so why do they hate each other so much?

I used to hate Danny Green because I thought he was just riding Mundines publicity wagon (I still think he does to an extent), but now I really like Greeny and will probably be going for him this time round against Mundine.

Green will say that Mundine started it by calling him a bum, and Mundine will say that Green started it by wanting to fight him.

I'm fairly sure Fenech started it by telling Australia that Danny would beat him if they fought, then Mundine retaliated by calling Green a bum, ect, and the rest is history as they say.

Though sadly I feel theres more to this beaten to death story.

I remember the heated interview with Choc and Fenech where Jeff had a t shirt with floats like a butterfly on the front and sleeps like a log on the back with Mundine out cold after Ottke lol. I remember wanting one of them.

I think Oztriker may have made those shirts. I remember him tellimg me Fenech bought 20 shirts off him that he made. I can't remember if it was that one, but I know it had Mundine's KO loss to Ottke on it.

Green was an up and coming SMW after doing well at the Shi-do-nay Olympic games, Fenech was looking to find a fighter that could knock Mundine down a peg or two, Green ascended the ranks well, Mundine avoided him (YES, TRUE!!!).

It got personal when Mundine called Green a bum.

They don't hate each other, that was a carry-over from Green's Fenech days, it was basically a case of the 2 best SMW's in Australia pitting their talents against each other and unfortunately Green came up short when they finally did.

But I tell you, if they rematch, I'm gonna go for Green again, because I think he will be a different beast second time around - what he did in their fight was damn stupid, and he will have more sense about him second time around.

Green's body seems to suit LHW more than SMW. They could have fought ten times at SMW and mundine would have beaten him every time.

At LHW Green has more of a chance but I would give mundine the edge 60-40 as Mundine is comforatable at the higher weight too, from his NRL days.

i probably wouldn't watch it mind.

Green definitely looks healthier at LHW.

The 'sickest' I've seen him was at SMW when he fought Mundine, he basically chased the body all night, and Mundine toyed with him.

I can only hope that if they do rematch at LHW, he'll have a clear mind and a plan B to fall back on, because his first showing vs Mundine was pretty ****ing ordinary.

Whenever I see a fight like Green vs Mundine, I'm always shouting "STOP CHASING THE SKINNY WEE CUNT, LET HIM COME TO YOU!!!"

So your comfortably with a rematch unlike others who think its a waste of time?

I think a fight against Kessler would be a good fight.
