"We got the call from your people asking if we wanted to fight, we said yes," said Green. "Now I am hearing you don't want the fight, it is sad you have done this to me again! You cant weasel your to a title shot without fighting someone. Every other super middleweight is booked, the only option is to fight me. Your promoter called us, they said they would call back and they haven't."
Green is coming off a ten round decision win over Rubin Williams this past January. Lacy, 23-1, 17 KO's, is coming off a ten round win over former Contender star Peter Manfredo, Jr.
"If Jeff Lacy wasn't scared we would be fighting May 31st, it would already be announced," said Green, 26-1, 18 KO's. "Just like we should have fought when he called me out the last time and I accepted. If you wanna be a fighter then lets fight. If you wanna be a punk then go play ping pong."
