Money Changes Hands As Fighter Performs 10/10 Backflip On Dive

10 out of 10 for this dive

10 out of 10 for this dive?

Was it a fit up? The bookies say it was…

The blokes counting the money says it wasn’t.

DANNY Green has performed the ultimate backflip, claiming Paul Briggs didn’t take a dive and was legitimately hurt by his glancing punch in last night’s controversial IBO cruiserweight title bout in Perth.

Green was left fuming last night when Briggs was counted out after copping a punch that merely grazed the top of his head, ending the bout just 29 seconds into the first round.

But today Green said he had changed his tune after viewing slow-motion vision of the punch.

The West Australian now believes nothing untoward occurred.

“I caught Briggs on the soft part on the skull on top of the head,” Green told a packed media conference.

The soft headed Briggs represents Queensland.

After the fight, Green threatened not to pay Briggs a cent, accusing the Queenslander of dogging it.

But Green confirmed this afternoon that Briggs would be paid in full, an amount believed to be in the vicinity of $250,000.
