Green Relaxing and Focusing Prior to Bout Against Andre Ward
Allan Green relaxes in his Hilton Oakland Airport suite as he gets mentally ready for his Super Six World Boxing Classic showdown with WBA World Champion Andre WardSaturday, June 19-live on SHOWTIME, 10p ET/PT– from Oakland’s Oracle Arena. The event is promoted by Goossen Tutor Promotions, TNT Boxing and Dibella Entertainment and sponsored by Corona, Oakland Tribune and River Rock Casino.
Allan Green stated, “Fight week for a boxer is 100% mental. I have done the work. I have trained for a world title fight, but in the last days before that first bell, it can’t be about that in my mind. I know on Saturday that I can walk out of the arena as the new WBA world champion. But I can’t focus on that. I can only focus on beating Andre Ward.
I have been doing this for a long time. I’ve seen fighters psych themselves right out. You have so much time to build up the moment in your mind that you run the risk of peaking too soon. I need that mental edge and intensity on Saturday. I don’t need it on Thursday.
So, for me, its all about relaxing right now. We may go out a bit later and do some shopping. Maybe buy some shoes.”
