But "The Green Machine" also has a mind to rematch domestic arch rival Anthony Mundine, who defeated Green by points decision last May in a WBA Super Middleweight title eliminator. Mundine must first get past another of his bitter rivals, Sam Soliman, when the two square off in March for the vacant WBA 168 lb title in Sydney.
Perth based Green had one of his better career showings against Murdoch, 26-7-1 (16), who had gone ten rounds with perhaps the light heavyweight division's must under-rated champion, WBO kingpin Zsolt Erdei, less than a year ago.
Showing top form, Green decked Murdoch in the first round with a stinging double jab that caught the longstanding PABA titlist completely by surprise. Murdoch beat the count but the Geelong puncher was finished just 65 seconds into the second round when Green connected with a full blooded left hook that hurtled Murdoch to the canvas.
