Cameron to challenge Green for IBO cruiserweight title

6:42 pm on 19 September 2012

The New Zealand boxer Shane Cameron will challenge Australian Danny Green for the IBO world cruiserweight boxing title.

The Green-Cameron fight will take place in Melbourne on November the 21st.

Cameron is the current WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental Heavyweight Champion and former Commonwealth and IBO Asia Pacific Cruiserweight Champion.

Green lost the IBO World Cruiserweight title to American Antonio Tarver last year - but was handed it back after Tarver recorded a positive drug test shortly before a draw with Lateef Kayode in June this year.

Cameron, who has a 29-2 record, last fought as a heavyweight, knocking American Monte Barrett out in July, and he will need to lose about seven kilos to take part as a cruiserweight.
