Mundine's new blast for Green
29th April 2009, 7:30 WST
Anthony Mundine yesterday scoffed at Danny Greenís successful return
to the ring and told the Perth fighter to "stay retired".
Green dispatched South African Anthony van Niekerk in less than two
rounds at Challenge Stadium on Sunday night in his first comeback fight
following his decision to quit the sport last year.
He immediately challenged his rival to nail down a rematch to their
high-profile May 2006 bout, which Mundine won comfortably on points.
But Mundine rubbished van Niekerk as a genuine test.
"I saw Sunday's fight but you couldn't really judge Danny Green's
performance against an opponent like that because he was so mediocre,"
Mundine told The West Australian. "I wouldn't have him (van
Niekerk) as a sparring partner.
"I wasn't impressed - I didn't see anything new. Danny Green was the
same fighter he has always been.
"I've already whipped his arse, so tell him to stay retired and let
me take care of the boxing!"
