Browne Not Impressed With Wilders Win

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

Hatton: “Joseph Parker isn’t on Lucas Browne’s radar”

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

Bundu shocks Gavin; Lucas Browne defeats Rudenko

Leonard Bundu 31-0-2 (11) beat Frankie Gavin 19-1 (12) by split decision. Two judges scored the fight 114-113 to Bundu, the other judge scored 115-112 for Gavin.

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).

Both men made their intentions clear from the start and landed with solid shots. Browne, bleeding close to both eyes from a number of head clashes, took control of things from the fifth round and never looked like losing the fight.

Hatton says Browne could fight Tyson Fury…

RICKY HATTON says his heavyweight charge Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne could fight Britain’s Tyson Fury…but it’s unlikely to happen until one of them has a world title.

Despite being well-acquainted outside of the ring, Browne and Fury have talked about facing each other in the past and Hatton believes a clash is inevitable providing that they both keep winning.

Browne, 20-0 (18 KOs), faces Ukraine’s unbeaten Andriy Rudenko in Wolverhampton on Friday night with the WBA International and WBC EPBC crowns on the line.

And a victory should put the hammer-fisted Aussie in touching distance of a showdown with either Bermane Stiverne or Ruslan Chagaev.

Fenech: “Lucas Browne can be a world champ in six months”

LEGENDARY Hall of Famer Jeff Fenech believes Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne can win a world title in as little as six months.

Australia has never produced a heavyweight champion of the world, but Fenech says he’s seen enough in the few weeks he’s been training Browne to suggest that the 35-year-old has all the ingredients.

Browne faces unbeaten Ukrainian Andriy Rudenko for the WBC’s EPBC and WBA Inter-Continental crowns in Wolverhampton, England on Friday night and victory should push him closer to a showdown with either Bermane Stiverne or Ruslan Chagaev.

“The WBC and WBA champions are both beatable. If Lucas keeps getting the best sparring then he could be fighting for a world title in six months,” Fenech, who himself won world honours in three weight divisions, said. Continue reading
