Johnson vs. Green

On the undercard to the Lopez vs. Marquez fight, we have Glen Johnson vs. Allan Green.  I’m picking the favorite here folks.  This one is easy.  In Green’s last fight against Andre Ward, we learned unequivocally that Green can’t fight on the inside.  Ward exposed Green’s terrible inside game by winning all 12 rounds in an inside fighting clinic.  Johnson excels at fighting in the pocket, and while clearly not as skilled as Ward, his ability to fight for extended periods of time while in your face will be more than enough to beat Green.  Skills pay the bills, as they say.  Johnson’s pressure will ensure that this fight will be fought on the inside.  Once inside, the fight is Johnson’s.
