There’s a reason Aussie Hw’s don’t go after the Commonwealth belt.

What?! Didn’t Meehan get ko’d on 90 seconds by Danny Williams?

“Eddy Chambers and Cunningham only had praise for Fury during his last training camp with the two of them. Kevin Johnson was amazed by Fury’s actual skill when he decided to box and pitch a shut out on all cards…” – Yup. People like to ignore that bout. Fury outboxed the slickster Johnson yet he’s clumsy. Right.

fury and browne both bums.

DMX – Not sure, I’m not an Australian. When Kali Meehan beat up Brewster and got robbed, I think that might of been for the WBO HW title. Imagine those juicy odds for an All-Australian HW World title at anytime let alone specifically 2014 and specific fighter, Leapai vs Browne. Ask the Australian bookies as they bet on anything down under. Realisitically Wlad beats Leapai by KO but Browne could beat Fury and Wilder although I think he would have a more difficult time with the present Chisora for some reason.

Has there ever been a Australian fight for a World Heavyweight title?
Little Justin Fortune fought Lennox Lewis in Dublin for no title (was he Kiwi)
Joe Bugner represented Hungry or UK when he fought
Odds would be astronomical for TWO Aussies to contest it

Rich – have another read. I didn’t say it will happen and I didn’t say “I” think it will happen. All I was saying is that the possibility of an All-Australian HW World title fight “could” happen due to the roads both these fighters (Leapai and Browne) are travelling at the moment. Now I don’t think that Leapai would defeat Wlad except that every puncher does have a small chance. Just the odds for that fight would be similar to a Tyson v Douglas fight and we know what happened in that one. Browne is strong enough and powerful enough to beat Fury which would push him well into the Top 10. IF (and it is a massive IF) both these guys ended up winning their respective fights an Australian match-up makes sense. Although, as much as I like both these gutsy guys it would show just how far the HW scene has plummeted.

Tachyon you’re crazy… Fury would knock Malignaggi out so fast it would make your head spin. Paulie could never reach Tyson with a punch and he’d get pole axed within 30 seconds.

@Python – great way to win an argument; ignore everything said and every fact presented and throw some negative comments to make the other guy “look stupid”…. what a moron

Posted December 31, 2013 2:19 pm 


@WHAT!?! If you think there’ll be an all-Australian World Heavyweight title fight in 2014 between Leapai and Browne, that’s good stuff you’re smoking! There won’t be one for a MAJOR title, but maybe for that joke WBF bauble ‘Aussie’ Joe Bugner won against Bonecrusher Smith, yeah!!

Posted December 31, 2013 11:20 am 


this fight will only be watched by hw wrestling muppets.

Posted December 31, 2013 9:20 am 


Browne has a good chance in this. I hope it gets made.

Posted December 31, 2013 4:28 am 


More ludicrous comments from Wazza as he looks at his bedroom wall pin-up, into the eyes of his man-loved idol, Fury. Your drooling over an uncoordinated oaf is embarrassing. Fury gets many ‘L’ on his record in 2014, if he is man enough to back up those accepted challenges that have been spouted from his big Manc mouth.

Posted December 31, 2013 4:00 am 


People dont let your personal dislike of Fury cloud your judgement. The late great Manny Steward said that Tyson Fury is the one to watch and a future champion when Fury trained at the Kronk gym. Eddy Chambers and Cunningham only had praise for Fury during his last training camp with the two of them. Kevin Johnson was amazed by Fury’s actual skill when he decided to box and pitch a shut out on all cards and Johnson said as much in the interview afterwards. Al Bernstein has called 100s of fights and reckons that Tyson although a bit raw is a real dangerous fighter and a real talent. These are the opinions that count when analyzing where Fury is at, not the “china-chinned” comments , or the self uppercut remark or the “dropped by a cruiserweight” logic. – all that is meaningless as it’s based on personal dislike and nothing to do with the facts on hand. Fury will outpoint Browne easily if he decides to box him, I can see the same thing happening to the easy-to-hit Arreola, and Stiverne being a tougher but winnable fight for Tyson. In all honestly the less seriously said about Wilder at this stage the better – as he has no business being in the same ring as Fury or the top 10 for that matter based solely on the 30 nobodies he’s fought – yes sorry to Sergai and Audley (both good at one point in time) but when facing Wilder they were both done.

jennings vs szpilka sorry

Posted December 31, 2013 1:52 am 


wilder could face ustinov, perez, the winner of jennings vs spitza, arreola, thomspon, chisora, or even guys wlad just schooled…..pianetta and wach. But no we will look forward to more taxi drivers in 2014.

Bobby Balljar

Fury started the challenge, then Browne accepted and hit the ball back into Fury’s court, and now it is up to Fury to agree and turn the deal over to the negotiators and promoters. Lets get it on, Tyson Fury vs DownTown Browne. A great match up of two very big dudes. Wilder waits in the dust, eating dust. He is a lame duck and should be stepping up to the plate to make a fight with a contender!!! A contender!!! Where is he at ??

Posted December 31, 2013 1:03 am 


As clumsy as fury is both fury and browne would destroy Leapai. How the hell is he ranked no1 after beating an unmotivated boytsov would has also never fought anyone. Leapai should mix it up with guys in the top 10 before getting a title shot. He would lose to wilder as well.

Posted December 31, 2013 12:52 am 


Browne has a granite chin and a VERY BIG punch. Fury had better stay on the outside and use his reach because Browne can handle the rough inside game.

Posted December 30, 2013 9:04 pm 


Tark you did notice I said “could probably” Paulie could box circles around Fury that’s for sure.

Posted December 30, 2013 8:52 pm 


fury will duck browne. if not, he will get laid out.

Posted December 30, 2013 8:07 pm 


The end of 2014 could be huge in Australia. With Leapai beating up Boytsov to become a mandatory No.1 for Wlad in which no one will give him any chance and rightfully so. Yet Leapai will have that dangerous power all the way through and I can see a Buster Douglas type moment in that one. Browne KO’s Fury within 6 and by 2014’s end you have an all-Australian World Heavyweight title fight. Albeit two guys that couldn’t hold a candle to 90% of past HW World Title holders but they do want to fight everyone and are willing to fight anywhere. The Australian sports writers should be keeping a close eye on these two over the next 6 months and get some public interest for boxing talk around the water coolers.

It is no surprise that Browne was the first to respond and it should be an easy sell in Britain (Aust vs Eng) and an easy contract as Browne is with Hatton Promos.

Posted December 30, 2013 6:49 pm 


Browne was an mma fighter before going into boxing so he will be ready for any rough house tactics fury brings, and as someone mentioned he is a big dude himself

Posted December 30, 2013 4:37 pm 


Furry just another HW Passenger,get over it.Dumb ass.

Posted December 30, 2013 4:35 pm 


If this fight does happens don’t be surprised to see fury hit the canvas a few times, I do think it will be an interesting fight though, but my money would be on browne

Posted December 30, 2013 4:34 pm 


browne just another hw cab driver.

Posted December 30, 2013 4:15 pm 


BTW… Browne is a good opponent, but I’d be disappointed if that’s the fight. I thought Wilder was the guy Fury wanted. Or was that a slip of the tongue? Everyone wants to see Wilder fight a real heavyweight to see if he’s the real deal. Browne is a new guy with only 19 fights. I can’t wait to see Wilder fight somebody.

You can improve a lot with just sparring. If you box a lot of rounds with a lot of skilled fighters you’re going to get a lot better. I don’t see anyone skilled who Wilder fought in his 30 fights. That doesn’t mean he’s not getting better or couldn’t beat Fury. He could fight an upper tier heavyweight and be successful. When you’re a very dangerous puncher it is definitely harder go get the right fights. That is a hard fact of this business. Nobody wants to get iced.

Guys who have lost a few fights, or are huge underdogs, don’t expect to beat Wilder. Liackhovich was the only opponent who HALF expected to win because he fought several good heavyweights and Wilder fought zero. But from his body language I could tell the White Wolf wasn’t enthusiastic before the opening bell.

Until you fight someone who fully expects to beat you you’re nowhere.

There’s a world of difference in fighting a guy who’s thinking, “I’m going to make it an interesting fight for a few rounds, but if Wilder starts killing me I’m taking the count. I’ve been knocked out 3 times and I’m not ready to be a basket case” then if you’re fighting a guy who’s thinking, “Wilder never fought anyone. I’ve fought good heavyweights and I’m still undefeated. I’ll be damned if this beanpole, who’s only fought a bunch of stiffs, beats me and costs me a 10-million dollar payday against Wladimir.”

It doesn’t mean he’s super anxious to fight you. But if he signs for the fight he believes he’s going to beat you. He hasn’t lost the fight before it starts.

Tachyon.., “Paulie could outbox everyone on Fury’s resume.”

You’re insane if you think Paulie could out-box Steve Cunningham. You know zero about boxing to make a comment like that.

Cunningham would have Paulie out in 2 minutes or less. With guys that short, punchless, and weak you can jab them to death without even trying if you have contender level skills. The first right hand that Steve hit Paulie with puts him out. If they were sparring in the gym it would be a joke because Paulie wouldn’t be able to do a thing.

Posted December 30, 2013 3:52 pm 


EDL, they are not your initials you lying ignoramus :-)

Posted December 30, 2013 3:37 pm 


TomCribb: Just observations on skill sets. As mentioned previously Fury is too clumsy and doesn’t belong in the top ten in my opinion. He’s looking to step up and prove himself but hasn’t got the skills to compete at the top level. Looks like he’ll be exposed in 2014. we’ll find out soon enough. As for Wilder, he’s still developing admittedly but Fury doesn’t have the power to knock him out and Fury’s inadequate defensive skills will let a Wilder bomb through in the first few rounds, once that happens Fury’s gone. You can’t deny Wilder’s power with the number of bodies he’s left twitching on the canvas (not stoppages, actual full blown knock outs). He even managed to put Haye down in sparring with big gloves and headgear.

Posted December 30, 2013 3:18 pm 


WHAT?! Why in the name of God do almost all gypsy fighters call out old, smaller fighters (Fury calls out RJJ) to pad their record? Fury has only one thing going for him and that is a huge size advantage in just about every fight he is involved in. First he retired from boxing to avoid the Wilder showdown and now he has a “wish list” for 2014 that includes fighting Wilder & a 45 year old RJJ. Sheesh! Just a matter of time before this big, minimally talented fighter is exposed and then he can retire for good! The BEST shot Fury EVER landed was an uppercut to HIMSELF! LOL! 2014 prediction for Fury: He will get KTFO…

Posted December 30, 2013 3:04 pm 


Tark Paulie could probably outbox everyone on Fury’s resume. true fury has a ko or two but over who? Lollipops candy canes, and snowcones

Posted December 30, 2013 3:03 pm 


Ha Ha, you bunch of f4ggots, thats my initials, i hope you all contract aids in the new year…..

Posted December 30, 2013 3:00 pm 


Tachyon.., “Fury reminds me of a giant verson of Paulie Malingia without the chin or boxing skill.”

Paulie doesn’t put people out. Fury does. Paulie isn’t bigger and stronger than most of his opponents. Fury is. Paulie can’t hurt anybody. Fury can … They’re both pea brained motor mouths. That’s the only thing they have in common besides being boxers.

Posted December 30, 2013 2:50 pm 

the voice of reason

interesting fight if it happens. Cant see fury knocking browne out or being able to bully him cos the guy is a massive lump himself. Browne probably hits harder than anyone fury has faced thus far too. Lets hope it happens

Posted December 30, 2013 2:49 pm 


Seany87 and Fury has shown you what skill wise? He was out on his back by Cunningham you need smells some of what your shoveling.

Posted December 30, 2013 2:47 pm 


At least Lucas Browne will turn up to box on the night, unlike a certain Hayemaker…

Posted December 30, 2013 2:40 pm 

Tachyon sucks

Tachyon sucks

Posted December 30, 2013 2:37 pm 


Tachyon, it’s Fury v Lucas Browne we’re talking, not Fury v Wlad or Wilder, learn to read. You are one of the dumbest, most bigoted mofo’s on this site and that’s not an easy thing to achieve!

Posted December 30, 2013 2:35 pm 

Mr gav

Fury called him out and Browne has answered. I hope fury can be a man of his words and make this fight happen. Brownes team are keen to make it happen so ball is in furys court now

Posted December 30, 2013 2:33 pm 


Fury might not be the best HW, but he’ll beat Lucas Browne. ‘This Chisora?’ someone says. Who has he beaten, Edmund Gerber and Ondrej Pala? Needing a strange refereeing decision to win against Malik Scott and a dodgy premature call v Pala. He won’t beat Fury. Never let dislike of a fighter cloud your judgement.

Posted December 30, 2013 2:31 pm 


Fury does not have enough power to be a threat in the heavy division brown would knock him silly. Fury is and will always be a journey man level fighter not his fault just the skills to be a great fighter are not there. Fury reminds me of a giant verson of Paulie Malingia without the chin or boxing skill.

Posted December 30, 2013 2:30 pm 


BMX;Well said, Browne would KO Furry, Haye would of KO’d him, he just saw money nothing else, Wilder will KO Furry, Wlad would kill him.

Posted December 30, 2013 2:22 pm 


Fury would never take this fight, just like with Pulev. Haye would’ve destroyed him but the 5 million was enough to retire on. This version of Del Boy would beat him. Options are running out for him, way too much risk. All he has is his mouth to get a chit and a pay day.

Posted December 30, 2013 2:06 pm 


Browne dosent have the skills to beat Fury who is on the next level as a fighter.But its a good first fight for Fury to bring in the new year.Fury wins pretty easy but gets some good much needed rounds in.

Posted December 30, 2013 2:03 pm 


Browne will finish fury

Posted December 30, 2013 1:54 pm 


EDL, you have to admit that most of you are thick as fu….ck?

Posted December 30, 2013 1:51 pm 


Well, at least Browne has accepted the challenge, whereas Wilder as per usual is staying silent when it comes to fighting any sort of live opponent. That says it all really!

Posted December 30, 2013 1:39 pm 


@ Gerry, ??????????? why do i have to be a ” thicko “, you have your opinion who is going to win i have mine, does that make you a thicko ..????? i dont understand..

Posted December 30, 2013 1:30 pm 


this would be a fun fight, a brawl.

Posted December 30, 2013 1:28 pm 


@Harry – And WEilder has beaten who to make you think he would beat Fury??? Errm, 30 nobodies! Arreola is slow and crude, Jennings has also faced poor comp so far, Stiverne has 1 good win only, against Arreola, Solis has beaten errm ..Chauncy Welliver and thats it. Least Fury has fought live opponents and beat them, and he will beat the crude, fat and slow Browne easily.

Posted December 30, 2013 12:48 pm 


Only a matter of time before Fury gets blasted out and this ridiculous hype job is over with. I can’t get over the clumsiness of Fury, a decent boxer puncher will capitalize on Fury’s flaws and knock him out. I was going to bet against Fury in the Haye fight and I’ll bet against him in the coming year as he steps up the faces a higher level of competition. Fury has admirable courage but is delusional when he makes the statement that he is the best heavyweight on the planet. Here’s a list of those I believe would beat him comfortably: Klitschko, Stiverne, Arreola, Solis, Wilder. I think Brown would beat Fury but that’s a more even fight.

Posted December 30, 2013 12:17 pm 


Hi I am Bears, the racist Klitschko lover. Fury would never take this fight with Lucas who wouldn’t last 30 seconds with either K2 brother.

Posted December 30, 2013 11:59 am 


Fury would stop Browne in a few wild rounds. Typical EDL thicko, lol!

Posted December 30, 2013 11:54 am 


Fury makes a mistake like the cunningham fight and it is over. Saying that his reach and speed plus his outside and inside rough tactics should give him a comfortable win. Browne hits as hard as wilder and both have ok skills but seem a bit raw. Wilder is still a better match up because at 6’8 he will have an easier time reaching fury than the 6’4 browne. I liked the way browne brutally chopped down the tall richard towers but fury is much better than towers. Good fight.

Posted December 30, 2013 10:50 am 


As bad as Fury is he’d blast out this door man…

Posted December 30, 2013 10:35 am 


Soon as Browne lands, thats it ..

Posted December 30, 2013 10:15 am 


Good, lets go. As long as Tyson stays away from the big bombs. He should win on points. Good fight and decent little payday for both guys.

Posted December 30, 2013 9:45 am 


Good! First Browne, then Wilder!
