Green says Shane Cameron still a monster despite slim down

11:39 am on 20 November 2012

The New Zealand boxer Shane Cameron has one more sleep before his world title fight against the Australian Danny Green for the IBO world cruiserweight belt.

The Australian would only agree to tomorrow's fight if Cameron slimmed down to weigh in at 89 kilos or less -

1.7 kilograms lighter than the minimum weight specified for the cruiserweight division.

Cameron, a natural heavyweight, has had to shed more than 8 kilograms to meet Green's demand.

But the 39-year-old made no apologies, arguing he was still at a massive disadvantage come fight night in Melbourne.
