Anonymous, Gavin has cleared up at British level. Last night was a European title fight but Bundu has arguably passed that level. Both guys are ranked top 10 at welter by at least 2 sanctioning bodies.

Gavin should stay at Brit level.

Gavin was a major disappointment but Bundu is no mug. He obviously needs to move to light welter and his refusal to do so up until now smacks of laziness because his body definition shows he can drop the pounds. The lack of power at welter makes it a no brainer but there’s some who have said Bundu is a nobody and that is far from the case. He is a very good boxer.

Browne a good guy,and very tough…but limited.Browne could be in some good fights with pretty good hvwts. and prehaps pull a couple of upsets on the way.Gavin needs to get down to light welter…and take his fights with a better mind-set,he has trouble getting ready for fights he should win,and this is what happens.Gavin does have alot of skills anybody who seen him fight would know that…but needs to get his act more together!!!

I looked at the records of both Browne and Rudenko before the fight. Not wishing to disrespect either but neither of them have fought anyone! 40-20 ranked fighters are their level with Browne having a punchers chance against higher opponents. Not hugely impressed with either to be honest.

Yeah Klitschko is way out in front but there are other very good match ups to be made. I don’t think the division is in as bad shape some would make out.

1903………… I have to agree with you. The moment i finished my post I thought………hmmm pulev, povetkin, dimitrenko etc. There is only one real champ, but there are a few guys who are entertaining. Browne is slow but he can punch. He will always be dangerous but will struggle with the top 20 or so guys out there.

Posted August 2, 2014 2:11 pm 


1903

Rod, Browne wouldn’t beat Pulev, Povetkin, Perez, Price, Thompson or Dimitrenko either. There’s probably others we’ve missed too. I like the guy but he is very limited and not top level. And at 35 he isn’t likely to get much better now at least not technically, fitness and stamina maybe.

Posted August 2, 2014 2:06 pm 


LOL

Does anyone know when Browne is next on outback Truckers.

Posted August 2, 2014 2:04 pm 


rod

browne, a man who would beat 95% of heavyweight but that top 5% will take him. He has a good jab, a massive punch and is super strong but moves like his legs are stuck in concrete, he cannot maintain a high workrate. That top 5% of heavies will beat him. Fury would be too fast, arreola and chisora too intense, jennings and cunningham too much movement. Wilder hits just has hard, faster and taller. Ustinov just has strong with better skills and then there is wlad.

I watched a few of these interviews with Big Daddy (Lucas Browne, not Idi Amin) at any rate Browne is a very like able fellow–has a bit more charisma than most fighters.

Wolverhampton is also famous for being where Robert Plant hails from. I believe he is the number 1 ticket holder at Wolverhampton Wanderers, a struggling club, a virtual basket case, even if they have huge support. They were however one of the best clubs in Europe for a time in the fifties. I am sure Sir Robert would never go to the fights it is definitely not his thing.

No surprises with the Gavin fight. Another over rated, over hyped pretender from the stinky little island. Who’s next to embarrass themselves from the devils A-hole. Fury already ran away from a guy who had 5 days notice and now the so-called fleet of foot, skilful Gavin has had his butt handed to him by a nobody.

The standard is too damn high because Waldimir is too damn good. Don’t try to tell me Browne is not a truly great HW though he would ice norton Shavers Lyle Young and a host of others, he’s just TOO FAST

Posted August 2, 2014 7:56 am 


Da Truth

@Anonymous. This version of Browne comfortabl;y handles many ‘apparently’ all time greats. He might not be able to throw the jab as often as Holmes, but when he doubles on it it’s like Floyd Patterson, with more power. Browne would probably take prime Holmes the full 12 now and lose a decision, and like I said a prime Ali could squeak a scorecard winover him because he gets tired. However, Browne is FAST he’s damn fast ans the guy moves side to side better than any heavyweight since Lennox Lewis. I don’t fancy him against Wladimir though. You got to realise that to become the champ today you aint beating Trevor Berbick, Oliver Mcall or someone shot. The standard of HW

Browne always looks super fit.

Posted August 2, 2014 7:18 am 


Mr Gav

I think Browne v fury should happen next, both under defeated and need of a high profile fight. An interesting fight that will answer some questions about both men, but I think furys camp will look for an easier route to the top.

Posted August 2, 2014 5:52 am 


Da Truth

@ lightning. You have to see Browne live to appreciate him fully. When he fougt the ring legend Toney he decided to keep a slow pace because he was rolling under Toney’s jab so well, and punching so fast James couldn’t see the shots and slowed himself down just to try and time a decent one. When Browne shuffles to the left and fires off a one two I say only; Wladimir, David Haye, maybe Povetkin and Chambers aren’t taking those shots flush. You can’t train for speed

Posted August 2, 2014 5:37 am 


Lightning

@DaTruth. I agree Browne is better than Holmes in some areas; punch power, hooking off the jab, head movement. BUT I don’t rate his stamina. The guy slows down too much after the 6 round mark. If he fought a Muhammad Ali he would roll him around for 4-5 rounds but then exhaust himself and maybe let Ali squeak out a decision. His jab, foot speed, head movement are all great as you say but they don’t count if you get too exhausted to properly use them.

Posted August 2, 2014 5:34 am 


Da Truth

Lucas Browne is at a point now where everything is starting to come in line. Same thing happened with Larry Holmes when he left the Ali camp, and definately with Mike Tyson when he had his final months with Cus D Mato. What Browne can do in this division no one is really aware of. Next time out you will all see the real Lucas Browne, lightning fast and hard to catch. He’s the best switch hitter from the HW division for wellover a decade. He just rolls side to side and launches back with power on every punch. The guy’s reflexes and composure under pressure are awesome. He’s already got some serious names onhis record. When he gets his crack at a world title it’s his speed and skill that give him a 50/50 shot. Can Wladimir land that jab against a big man who moves side to side so well? Browne’s gonna use combination punching Wladimir hasn’t faced in years, power plus hand speed. Klitsachko will have to stick him, move and stayout of range but he’s in with a guy who’s too fast to get caught clean. I think Browne will fight either Fury or Stiverne, I don’t know where he ranks on the IBF or WBO lists. If he does fight Wladimir he’s just got to pop that jab like there’s no tomorrow and show Wladimir he’s too fast to be jabbed to death. He’ll lead off that vicious left hook and try to out speed and overpower the Ukranian early. Too big a task? We’ll see. But getting to enjoy a bonafide heavyweight talent rising the ranks the way Tyson, and Holmes did is enjoyable.

Browne looked like a fat bar room brawler. He just went life and death with this guy, watched it live. He would not even bf Commonwealth champ if Chisora, a Fury and Haye wanted that belt. He is just like a good tough man contestant. Fighting heart but zero skills. If this seems harsh look at last night’s fight.

Posted August 2, 2014 12:59 am 


DaPugilist

All ya ever hear on here is that “Browne needs to lose weight, he’s too fat, doesn’t work on his conditioning enough, doesn’t have skills.” Well he’s gone 12 rounds twice now without a problem, he’s consistently looking for the best fights out there and is willing to fight anyone, maybe all you negative idiots can get off his back and show some respect, he’s got more than a good chance against stiverne and chagaev, any heavy out there besides klitschko in fact.

Posted August 2, 2014 12:04 am

DMX has it 100% right. That Ukrainian Rudenko was tough as nails! Really though, not much skill. I’m not sure at this stage in his career Browne can ever make the necessary adjustments.

Lucas Browne beats an undefeated HW. No wonder Fury runs from him. When was the last time Fury beat an undefeated pro? Fury won’t even face a limited Ustinov. Skills or not, Browne KO’s glass jaw Fury.

The only Wolverhampton I ever heard of was the soccer club that got relegated last year from the English Premier League. Didn’t even know it was a city.

Lucas Brown won and thats great and I wish he continues to win until he is up for a world title shot. But he have provehn to be very limited beyond his sice, streanght and punchpower + that he seems to get bad cuts easily and that seems to look like a problem for him if he fights some more skilled boxers.

For moment world heavyweight title challanger and former #1 contender Alex “The Lion” Lepai is Australia’s best heavyweight hope but Brown has potentials.

Very disappointed with Frankie Gavin tonight. Boxed well for 5 rounds and then came apart. Second half of the fight kept getting caught on the ropes and despite what Warren says he did deserve to lose that fight. I like Gavin but his lack of power stood out tonight he just couldn’t deter Bundu from coming at him, he physically doesn’t look as in shape as he could but I’ve no doubt he is fit as he wouldn’t have seen the end of the fight if not but he could obviously afford to lost a few pounds to move down to light welter where the power issue won’t be so obvious.

YOU TOOK the words right out of my mouth. I like Browne, but I don’t like the fact that he looks like he cut corners in training. He can easily drop 7 or 8 pounds of fat and increase his engine to the bargain. He is as game as and can take a shot, but is often ponderous and somewhat easy to hit.

Browne needs to get into boot camp and work on his condition and then he needs to work on acquiring a couple of fundamental weapons: a good jab and some good upper nosy and head movement. I would get him doing hours of footwork drills as well.

Right now he is a game fighter but he’s probably not even ready for David Price.

Anyone seen Frankie gavin.

Hate to say it because I like Browne’s attitude but he is very limited technically and slow. He hits hard enough to deal with lower level fighters but if he attempts a move on to world level he will be found out very quickly. He did just about enough to win tonight but he picked up cuts and struggled at times against a limited opponent. Any of the top 15 heavyweights would deal with him, some by out boxing him others by doing serious damage and knocking him out as he is very easy to hit.

I hope now that Lucas Browne will try and get a nutrionist on board,
someone that can help him shed 10lbs +
Didn’t see this one, but the fight with Toney that went the distance was fought at a snails pace

Next I’d like to see him fight Alex Lepai
Just to find out who is Australia’s top Heavy

After that we can talk Tyson Fury
