About the Allan Green debacle…

By Zach Arnold | February 29, 2008

Print Friendly and PDF

Allan Green, who has been pushed constantly on ESPN2’s boxing coverage for what has felt like an eternity, backed out of his scheduled fight tonight in Marksville, Louisiana, against Antwun Echols. There’s word that Green may get suspended for this move.

Echols ended up facing last-minute replacement Mike Walker, a boxer out of the Chicago area who has fought in Indiana. (And to hear the ESPN2 boxing broadcasting team, Indiana can be a prejorative and a state name.) Walker, who was labeled as a rather untested fighter, gave a good fight and fought Echols to a majority draw. The only thing that looked worse than Echol’s performance in the fight was the judge that ruled the fight in Echols’ favor, 98-92.

  1. Chuck says:

    It seems like to me that Green is having a falling-out with his promoter Tony Holden. Or maybe all those shots to his head are making him act unrational? He did get hit pretty hard for ten rounds against Edison Miranda.

  2. Chris says:

    It looks like the upcoming change in promoters was the deciding factor in Green pulling out of the fight. But pulling out of the fight the day before the event was a bad move on his part.

    I used to watch boxing as a fan of combat sports, before the rise in MMA. I do not like watching boxing anymore.
