West Australian Danny Green plans to “get on the cans” after he won his fourth world title, beating New Zealander Shane Cameron for the International Boxing Organisation cruiserweight belt with a unanimous points decision at Hisense Arena in Melbourne

Green, 39, last year lost the belt to Antonio Tarver but the American was stripped of the title for doping.

Green was simply too good for his Kiwi opponent in front of a sold out crowd last night Australian time.

The judges cards read 119-109, 116-112 and 116-113, convincingly in Green’s favour, leaving his career record at 33-5 after 11 years in the ring.

Cameron, a natural heavyweight who had to drop 8kg to make weight, was gallant and could have become the first Kiwi-born pro in more than 100 years to win a world title.

Green was prepared to spend the fight on the inside of his bigger opponent and the tactic paid dividends.

"I knew if I needed to work inside I could work inside and I out-muscled a much bigger man,'' Green said. "I'm so happy and very, very proud to have won.''

Dodging speculation that he would retire after the fight he said: “I'm going to be an Aussie and get on the cans with the boys.”
