Lucas Browne Prepared To Fly To UK After Beating Walker

MDR 160612 Browne v Rasani 19LUCAS “BIG DADDY” BROWNE has said his next fight could be in the UK, after he halted Travis Walker in Melbourne on Thursday (July 25).

The Perth puncher, 34, recovered from a flash knockdown in the first round before taking charge of the fight, dropping the tough American three times, and forcing him to quit on his stool after seven sessions.

The win takes his perfect ledger to 17 wins with 15 stoppages and moves him further up the heavyweight ladder.

Originally, Browne was scheduled to face Sheffield giant Richard Towers, but visa issues meant the fight was scrapped at the eleventh hour.

Now “Big Daddy” says he’s prepared to jet across the world and face the Englishman in his backyard.
