Career Overview

James Green was a pressure in-fighter who enjoyed success early in his career with wins over Wilford Scypion, Ernie Singletary and Teddy Mann. He then suffered setback against Frank Fletcher. After close losses to David Braxton and John Mugabi, he won a couple of fights against some softer competition, but followed them with losses against an undefeated world champion Donald Curry, Kevin Watts, and finally a loss against Michael Olajide that sent him into retirement. After an 8-and-a-half year hiatus, he came back as a super middleweight and middleweight with little success. He finally hung his gloves up in 1996, at the age of 38.
