LOL Green. Can’t believe I was on his bandwagon early. Dude folds like 7-2 off-suit pre-lop every time the going gets rough.

Just had a quick look at Caparellos record
It’s abysmal
Mostly decisions against guys with losing records and part time plumbers
6 knockouts tells me he is in a world of trouble
To have any chance whatsoever against Green you need to have a dig to get his respect

Unless something has happened to Green or his pre fight meat pie is doped
He will go through Caparello like a blow torch through toilet roll

The IBO is no more or less credible than any of the boxing organisations in fairness, it’s simply less popular than the more established titles – so you get weaker title fights. I find the WBC and WBC with their Diamond/Emeritus/Silver/Super/Regular/Interim nonsense to be far more pathetic. In the current setup, you can’t say that any of these organisations has more or less of a right to be there holding “world” title fights than the others……..I certainly wouldn’t say the “big four” have any more right…………………tournaments are the way forward, where the best fight the best and a true world champion and true contenders are established. Look at the super six, it established Ward as the champion, Froch as the top contender, and proved that Arthur Abraham simple didn’t have it at the top level. Now how many would have argued before the super six that Abraham was a top level guy, purely because of the number of defenses of that so called “big four” IBF title of his?

Not much credibility to the IBO.

Anonymous – Wow that was interesting to know that you knew George Scott like that, and even if my knowledge on his personal life is little, I can understand what you mean there and decide I have to agree with you there. Scott had lots of potentails that is true or else he would never have won the Silver medal in the Olympc games or fought for 2 world title fights. But like you said, he probebly needed a better trainer for his PRO career.

george Scott had all the skills but no punch, the mistake he made is having a Swedish trainer, and moving back to Sweden after the Johnson defeat. Scott allowed the Swedes to talk him into coming back and be based in Sweden, he went straight down hill from then. I know him personally, His Sister has 3 children(2 girls and a boy) with 1 of my best mates and country man. I know he regrets ever making that move, When he was on top all the Swedish media was kissing his butt, he forgot the racism he had to go through when he was a kid growing up in Sweden, and drop his guard. With a proper trainer and staying on in Florida, he would still had done well inspire of the Johnson defeat. He was the most talented fighter ever in Sweden, and that includes the overrated Johanson.

DMX – I know what you mean. When our Swedish George Scott (41-5-0 KO’s 17) (most common known for his Silver medal in lightweight achivment from the 1988 Olympic Games) fought as professional boxer between 1991-2001 he fought 2 times for a major world title oppertunity but sadly was not good enough to win. In 1994 he challanged Jake Rodriguez for the IBF light welterweight world title and was TKO’d in 9th round and 5 months later Rodriguez lost the title to the upcoming great Kostya Tszyu. Scott’s second and final shot at a major world title was in in 1998 against Steve Johnson for the WBC lightweight world title, a contest Scott lost by clear UD and strange enough Johnson also lost his world title 4 months later to Cesar Bazan. BUT George Scott is in PRO way most remember here for his “WBU world title champion” achivment. Scott became WBU’s first ever lightweight champion in 1995 and defended his belt 4 times between 1995-1997 before he vacated the title in-order to challange Steve Johnson for his recognised WBC title. And that is what I hav e said for a long time here that George Scott was a fine boxer and one of Scandinavia’s best BUT he was never a real world champion in International recognition. Sad but true. Our only recognised world champions in boxing history are heavyweight Ingemar “Ingo” Johansson and middleweight Armand Kranjc.

Agree Peej. I haven’t followed who had what titles for several years now. I am interested in the match-ups alone and couldn’t tell you who any of the “champs” are, just the best fighters…

A bit harsh on Lucas Browne. His fight did fall through, again, and Toney stepped in for a payday. If all those supposed contenders like Towers, Price, Fury, Wilder and any Euro would stop running from ‘Big Daddy’s huge power then he wouldn’t need to give boxing lessons to over-the-hill burger eaters like Toney.

Bugner lol, not heard that name in a while. Mundine, Caparello, the big fella Lucas Browne… don’t rate them. They take on the old US fighters when they are falling over with age and attempt to get recognition? Mundine at least had a little success but only Fenech and Kostya stand out in recent memory as top aussie fighters, the rest have come and gone without much to remember them by.

Most Australians truly believe Joe Bugner was a heavyweight Champion after winning some kind of WBF belt when he was about 58 years old

It’s absolute madness

And finally . . . .

Allan Green will be given a referees waning if he hits Blake Caparello
Possibly disqualified if he hurts him

Agreed, I stopped reading this article when in the first line it read World IBO light heavy weight tile fight. The media need to take some responibility in all this alphabet title rubbish and refuse to aknowledge its exsistence. The only reason they exsist is to earn santioning body fees, and the alleged ‘world title’ give a promotor a way of making the fight sound more important than it really is. Lets stop the promotion of these titles and refuse to mention them.

Correction, the IBO title is not recognised as an “major” world title organisation. Only have the OBO title got recognition with been a suporter title for in Lineal world champion or an major title holder. Like when Bernard Hopkins, Lennox Lewis, Antonio tarver etc had the belt along with the lineal with/out the WBC title. Seriusly stop put IBO, WBF, IBA, NBA, WBU or whatever there is more as a “world title belt”. There is enough with the WBC, WBA, IBF & WBO titles (WBC is worst with Emeritus, Diamond and WBA with regular or super).

Green will loose again, he is 1 of those guys who always talk a good fight, looses and has a good excuse after, there is a bit of british about old Alan.

Another meaningless title!

Posted August 28, 2013 4:10 am 


WHAT!?!

Yes the names on Allan Green record are certainly better than Caperello. Wait a minute, another closer look is that the only decent names on Green record all have ‘L’ in the outcome. He hasn’t beaten anyone above B grade standard. Caparello absolutely dominates with a points victory. Green is going to Australia for a paid holiday.

Not sure what happened to him, all I know is that he always has an excuse when he loses

What’s the deal with Green? He seemed like he had some promise early, but hasn’t thrown a punch in a fight for a while now…

Allen Green? Isn’t he tired of losing yet??

Allan Green is fighting again. It is really time for him to find another profession.
