Boxer Danny Green (pictured) says his career won’t be defined by his upcoming bout against Anthony Mundine on February 4.

The rivalry between the pair has been fought long and hard away from the ring and in the media since Mundine’s unanimous point victory over Green in 2006.

There’s been an enormous amount of interest and no small degree of controversy about the upcoming fight at the Adelaide Oval but Green says, regardless of the result, his career will be defined by far more than his rivalry with the Bundjalung man.
