Green recently lost his younger brother, who was murdered in a late-night, drive-by shooting. Green’s brother was one of four family members shot that horrible night.

Taking the fight with Thomson served as somewhat of a necessary distraction, but now that the fight is over, Green says he is prepared to delve into the grief that he hasn’t really had much chance to contemplate leading up to the fight.
