Popular Australian cruiserweight Danny Green was left to contemplate retirement after Krzysztof Wlodarczyk flattened him with a swift left hand in the 11th round of their WBC championship fight at the Challenge Stadium in Perth on Wednesday, November 30. Green managed to make it to his feet by the count of nine but with glassy eyes and a staggered walk, the referee – Michael Griffin – waved the bout off.

As the referee went to hold onto Green in order to ensure the pugilist knew the fight was over, his shoulder was left with a deep claret stain as the man dubbed Machine was bleeding profusely from the nose. It was Green’s second successive defeat, having suffered a ninth round retirement to the hands of veteran American prizefighter Antonio Tarver. Wlodarczyk, conversely, celebrated his third defence of the WBC crown at 200lbs.

“This is it for me guys,” a dejected Green (31-5-0, 27ko) said following the official announcement of his loss. “He is the best cruiserweight in the world so it’s no shame to lose to him. I’ve had an amazing career. I came back from a devastating defeat and came out against the best cruiserweight in the world and was four and a half minutes away from a fairytale, but that’s the sport of boxing.”

The champion, Wlodarczyk (46-2-1, 33ko), stated: “It was a great fight. I want to thank the fans and especially those Polish ones. I had some problems in the earlier rounds so I knew I had step it up – and I did.”
