Allan Green Targets WBC Champ Carl Froch
June 25, 2009 - Ever since Allan “Sweetness” Green stole the show on April 25 with a second round knockout over Carlos De Leon, Jr. he has been waiting for the big showcase fight he deserves. With no one stepping up to the plate, Green has set his sights on Carl Froch, the man he shared top billing with in April, in his quest to prove he is the best super middleweight in the world. It’s no secret Green (28-1, 20 KOs) is the world’s most exciting fighter at 168 lbs. His stirring knockout wins over top contenders such as De Leon, Jr., Jerson Ravelo, Darrell Woods, and Jaidon Codrington have been captivating boxing fans for years..

However, in recent months, with not one fighter showing a willingness to step in with him, he remembered the words of Froch (25-0, 20 KOs) who said he would welcome all challengers for the WBC title he won on that night in April.
"I want his belt,” said Green. “We both scored knockout wins on the same Showtime telecast, so to me, and the Showtime viewers, it would make perfect sense for us to fight each other next. I have a lot of respect for Froch and his skills, but he doesn't go more than six rounds with me."
Green’s promoter, Lou DiBella of DiBella Entertainment isn’t surprised people are so reluctant to fight his charge, given his tremendous boxing skills and unparalleled power. But, he believes Carl Froch is one fighter who wants a challenge, and that Green-Froch is the best fight that can be made in the super middleweight division.
“A fight between Allan Green and Carl Froch is one of the best that can be made in boxing,” said DiBella. “It’s reasonable for Froch to want to defend his title on his home turf, and Allan Green is willing to travel to Britain for the fight. If Froch is really committed to fighting the best the division has to offer, he will take the challenge of a fight with Allan Green.”
With Froch on his mind, Green is done waiting patiently for his chance to shine, and wants the WBC champ to know they have the power to put on one of the most intriguing fights in boxing, and he is ready to get it on.
"He came to America and made his mark,” Green said of Froch. “I’m willing to go to his backyard, knock him out, then go back to Nottingham for an immediate rematch and knock him out again to make an example out of him. It's only going to be a short amount of time before I'm the sultan of the super middleweights."
