LUCAS BROWNE has placed Deontay Wilder on his hit list, but first he’s keen to square off with WBA champion Ruslan Chagaev. Continue reading
LUCAS “BIG DADDY” BROWNE believes he should be given a shot at the WBA interim heavyweight title or even regular champion Ruslan Chagaev in the wake of the Luis Ortiz doping scandal.
Ortiz won the interim strap with a one round KO of Lateef Kayode in September, but the result has now been made a no contest and the belt is likely to be declared vacant after the Cuban tested positive for the banned substance Nandrolone. Continue reading
As we see out the year of 2014, boxing fans will look back and be nothing more than truly excited about the year to come.
Whilst there may not have been many real legacy defining super-fights, many new contenders have emerged, ready to pose a threat to those that dominate. Some divisions have opened up and could be conquered by anyone, while others have contenders vying for an imperious champion.
At featherweight a true legend in Nonito Donaire was put away by Nicholas Walters. Sergey Kovalev was not able to do the same to Bernard Hopkins, but he showed he is a worthy successor to the oldest champion in boxing history. Continue reading
HEAVYWEIGHT sensation Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne is currently enjoying the bright lights of Las Vegas and has set out his plans to one day box in the world’s fight capital.
The unbeaten Aussie is in Sin City to take part in the WBC’s 52nd annual convention alongside promoter and former four-time world champion Ricky Hatton.
As well as giving him opportunity to lobby for a world title shot in 2015, it has given Lucas a change to rub shoulders with the sport’s true greats and he admits he’s not got quite an appetite for stardom. Continue reading

LUCAS “BIG DADDY” BROWNE has further staked his claim for a fight with American KO artist Deontay Wilder after watching the Bronze Bomber’s lacklustre display against Jason Gavern on Saturday night.
Gavern hung around for four rounds before quitting on his stool against Wilder, but was blitzed by Browne inside three rounds during 2012. Continue reading
RICKY HATTON has stated that Kiwi hopeful Joseph Parker isn’t even on Hatton Promotions’ radar for Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne.
Parker defeated little known American Keith Thompson this weekend and has mentioned a showdown with Browne on numerous occasions.
But as Browne, who holds the Commonwealth, WBC EPBC and WBA Inter-continental crowns, is ranked highly by the three main world governing bodies and seemingly on the verge of a world title shot, the match-up is highly unlikely at present.
“I’ve heard Parker’s team say Lucas is scared of them, which is laughable,” Ricky said. Continue reading

LUCAS “BIG DADDY” BROWNE came through his toughest test to date and remained on course for a world title shot with hard fought unanimous decision over Andriy Rudenko in Wolverhampton, England on Friday night (August 1).
