Danny Green 'fights' Paul Briggs


NOVEMBER 3 (WA Today): Perth boxer Danny Green has been cleared of any wrongdoing following his controversial knockout of Paul Briggs in July.

An enquiry cleared IBO world cruiserwegiht champion Green, but found Briggs participated in a sham contest for not disclosing his health issues prior to the fight.

The WA Professional Combat Sports Commision commission has ordered Briggs to pay $75,000 from his $200,000 purse, and cancelled his registration as a boxer in Western Australia.

The commission handed down its long-awaited finding today into the July 21 fight at Challenge Stadium. 

JULY 22: Boxer Danny Green says it's time for Paul Briggs to answer some questions about the farcical bout in Perth that's now being investigated by the WA Professional Combat Sports Commission.

Wednesday night's fight only lasted 29 seconds and the Commission is looking into whether it was a sham bout.

Green told Channel 7 Briggs should explain his performance.
