Australian boxer Danny Green admits he's wary of Shane Cameron's power as they line up for their world title fight.

Green was in Auckland today for a fight promotion ahead of their Melbourne showdown on November 24 where the vacant IBO cruiserweight title will be on the line.

With Cameron dropping down a division, Green knows the Kiwi brings a heavyweight's punch with him.

"I know that if I wear it clean with his best shot, I'm going to be in a world of trouble," Green, a triple world champion in three weight divisions said, adding he felt he had his own style to more than survive on.

"We're really focusing on what I'm going to do to Shane. I can punch too, and I'm pretty accurate."

It was a low-key in Auckland today in terms of trash-talking but there was no lack of confidence from either camp.

Green felt Cameron was something of an "old school boxer" but the Mountain Warrior believed he had moved on from that.

And Cameron, the Commonwealth champion, suggested the long delay in this fight finally being arranged would help him.

"This would have been a hard fight for me two years ago, just based on my style then," Cameron said.

"If I can make it as tricky as I can for my opponent, and move as much as I can ... well, a moving target is much harder to hit than a stationary target, and I've been a stationary target for many, many years."

Cameron dropped down a division two years ago in the hope of getting a much-cherished world title fight against Green. Frustrated at not getting that opportunity, he had gone back to fight with the big boys. Now, as he dropped the kilos to make the scales, he believed he was better able to handle that transition.
