Danny Green dishes Carlton an AFL uppercut

Champion boxer Danny Green helped out his beloved West Coast Eagles this week by knocking back the chance to motivate Carlton's players ahead of Saturday night's AFL semi-final showdown at Patersons Stadium.

"I was contacted by someone yesterday to have a chat to the Carlton boys before the game," Green revealed on Tuesday.

"I was told (by the bloke that) Juddy is calling in a favour. I don't know whether that's crap or not.

"They asked me to come down to the rooms and have a chat with them but I said 'you're dreaming, no chance, good luck, it won't happen'.

"I'm an Eagles man."

Green's trainer Angelo Hyder then chipped in with this pearler: "You should have done it and just made it a bad one (by telling them) 'youse are going to get flogged today'."

West Coast players Luke Shuey, Mark Nicoski, Chris Masten, Sam Butler, Andrew Strijk and retired premiership midfielder Chad Fletcher were on hand at Green's media conference on Tuesday as the former IBO cruiserweight world champion announced his upcoming fight against Poland's Krzysztof Wlodarczyk at Perth's Challenge Stadium on November 30.
