Krzysztof Wlodarczyk vs Danny Green: Fight Poster

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Here's the official fight poster for the WBC cruiserweight title bout between Poland's Krzysztof Wlodarczyk and Australia's Danny Green, which takes place very early tomorrow morning on American time, with the full card starting at 3:30 a.m. EST.


Wlodarczyk (45-2-1, 32 KO) was likely lured to Australia to face Green (31-4, 27 KO) for the same reason that all of Green's recent opponents, such as Roy Jones Jr and Antonio Tarver, were: Money. One thing you have to give Green is that to fight at home in Oz, he sure as hell pays his opponents well. There's definitely reward with the risk.

Also on the card will be long-running WBA featherweight titlist Chris John (45-0-2, 22 KO), taking one of his usual fights against a non-contender. John will face 35-year-old Ukrainian Stanislav Merdov (32-7, 24 KO). Merdov has never beaten anyone of note.

Plus, Will Tomlinson (17-0-1, 12 KO) will face Mexico's Alan Herrera (26-3, 17 KO) in a super featherweight bout, and Daud Yordan (27-2, 21 KO) faces Frankie Archuleta (27-8-1, 14 KO) at 126 pounds, which is apparently for the vacant IBO Asia Pacific title, which would kind of make sense of Archuleta wasn't from New Mexico and had ever fought outside of the United States, but he hasn't, so it doesn't.

Once again: Bad Left Hook will try to have round-by-round coverage of this show tonight. No, I'm not certain why, I just like middle of the night cards. So if you're an Aussie, or just a night owl, check back later. No guarantees, though.
