Draymond Green and his passion for boxing

Draymond Green’s aggression is not limited to the basketball court. He also enjoys watching boxing and has on several occasions, admitted that he is a fan of Floyd Mayweather. He also attended the previous battle between Fury and Wilder in 2020. Looking at his obsession with boxing one might think this could be the reason former Celtics star Kendrick Perkins wants to box Green.

Perkins appeared on the Road Trippin podcast with Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson. He said, “He’s not even my former teammate, but he feel like that I talk sh*t, and I feel like he talk s*it is Draymond Green.”

“Like if I had to get in the ring and really put these paws on somebody, it would be Draymond Green. But I really think he don’t want that smoke, and history tells me he really don’t want that smoke.”
