Holmes tells Lucas Browne to jab Chagaev

LUCAS “BIG DADDY” BROWNE has received some words of advice from heavyweight legend Larry Holmes ahead of his WBA title clash with Ruslan Chagaev on March 5.

Today he is busy managing his numerous businesses and investments, but he still had time to give some pointers to the hard-hitting Aussie.

Ruslan Chagaev vs Lucas Browne on March 5

Ruslan Chagaev - LUCAS "BIG DADDY" BROWNE has the opportunity to make history when he faces Ruslan Chagaev at the Akhmat Arena in Grozny, Chechnya on March 5. Australia has never had a world champion in the heavyweight division, but the 36-year-old from Sydney aims to change that by ripping the WBA crown away from the experienced Uzbek. Browne has been the mandatory challenger for the title since February, but has had to wait patiently for a shot due to Puerto Rico's Fres Oquendo being granted a rematch with Chagaev. That return was scrapped in October when Oquendo suffered an injury.
