Danny Green claims first ever Aussie title; Moloney brothers win

Phil Jay 03/08/2016

Former world champion Danny Green returned for only the second time in four years on Wednesday to capture the Australian cruiserweight title in Victoria.

The 43 year-old surprisingly picked up the maiden national belt of his career with a unanimous decision win over countryman Kane Watts.

Green now moves on to a potential rematch with Anthony Mundine a decade on from their first meeting in Sydney.

Mundine won the convincingly back in 2006 at super-middleweight, although any second fight is set to be negotiated at a higher limit.

The boxers are rumoured to be making upwards of $5m dollars each once they sign on the dotted line to meet again later this year.

In the co-feature, Czar Amonsot stopped Christian Lopez in three rounds, whilst talented brothers Andrew and Jason Moloney both improved their undefeated records to 9-0.

Jason won on points against Jeffrey Francisco, whilst Andrew wasted no time getting Markquil Salvana out of there with a first round knockout.
