Without taking anything away from Danny Green's banging skills it's disappointing to see that his forthcoming fight against Roy Jones (Sydney Wed Dec 2) is "proudly supported by Hungry Jack's".

Yep the purveyours of junk food... you know, the stuff that for all intents and purposes should not form part of our food chain, foods that are high in salt, sugar, fat or calories and low nutrient content.

You can bet your bottom dollar that in Jones' and Green's lead up to their fight they won't be eating any crap and they won't be eating anything on offer at Hungry Jack's.

Reason being, both Jones and Green would be doing everything in their power to be in peak condition for the "big" fight, eating nutritious foods, drinking fresh water and undergoing gruelling training sessions.

If that is the case, why is Hungry Jack's being promoted as part of Green's big picture? Why, for example, wasn't support "proudly" garnered from the fresh food sector, sports bodies, allied industries et al.

Both Jones and Green know that the things they do can influence the vulnerable and they both know that they are in an enviable position, being able to change things up for our impressionable young guns.

Unless they have dementia pugilistica.
