By Eugene Carnachan - Danny Green 29-3 V Manny Siaca 22-6 round by round – Challenge Stadium, Perth, Western Australia. Siaca enters the ring to a Puerto Rican rap song. Green enters to the Men at Work song “Down Under”.
Green looks a little dry. Siaca looks solid and good to go. Green isn’t as ripped as we are used to seeing him but that said he’s fighting at Cruiser so doesn’t have to deplete himself to get down to weight. He looks strong..
Green looks mean in the stare down. Got his Aussie battler stare working well.
Siaca looks a little passive…like his hearts not in this fight.

Siaca complained of being hit behind the head. A few landed thereabouts but the fact of the matter is, is he didn’t want to fight on.
Green to aggressive.
Post fight Green says he can trade with heavyweights he’s punching that hard.
First he should try trading with Marco Huck, Steve Cunningham, Herbie Hide, Troy Ross and other top flight Cruiser weights before making such lofty calls.
He hasn’t tested his punching power against the top brass of the Cruiser division let alone thinking he can trade with the Klits or Haye. That troika present a big difference between a washed up RJJ and Manny Siaca whose mettle has to be questioned post this fight.
