Just checked Browne out on YouTube. Looks like a bouncer and fights like one. Price would starch this guy.Posted January 29, 2013 9:37 am

Give it 18 months & Joseph Parker’s gonna be challenging for the Commonwealth title!Posted January 29, 2013 5:59 am
Make no mistake about it – Browne is the hardest hitter in the Heavyweight division right now. There’s no chance Price will defend his Commonwealth title against him, mark my words. He’ll demolish Richard Towers when they fight and if he clipped Price, he’d fall too.Posted January 28, 2013 7:20 pm
Browne has legit power but is very raw overall…will soon be gone after he fights more skilled guys.Price would have way to much in the skills dept.Posted January 28, 2013 2:55 pm
Thompson is a good fight for Price, he can crack harder than people think and will fancy his chances. He’s only known for getting KO’d by Wladimir but he has beaten some ok names and has a decent KO record.
Really though Browne should concentrate on improving his resume, he’s Australia’s version of Deontay Wilder at the moment only about a decade older. If he wants to meet Price or any other genuine up and coming contender he’ll need to be someone worth fighting.Posted January 28, 2013 1:20 pm
Brownie can go fight Chisora, Richard Towers or Sexton first. They are more on his level. Price is way ahead of Brownie.Posted January 28, 2013 12:39 pm
Yes very true. Cant see price going to australia though not much point. He wants a lonsdale bout outright so expect him to fight chisora or sprott after thompson. Still I agree a meeting in australia would be goodPosted January 28, 2013 10:18 am

The only way Price/Browne could stir any interest would be if it happened in Australia.Posted January 28, 2013 9:13 am
We still havnt seen Price take a full-on punch from a powerful heavyweight. Too many quick victories against over-matched opponents up to now. Thompson is a great test for him in terms of boxing ability but he is not a big puncher.Posted January 28, 2013 9:13 am
Good on Browne …. whoever he is, but I suspect that Price will see him as a backwards step. It is time that Price, providing he beats Thompson, to keep up’ing the competition level.Posted January 28, 2013 9:10 am
If he wins vs Thompson then I expect Price to fight one more British fighter (to keep the Lonsdale belt) and then step it up again. Browne will need some decent wins against decent opposition if he wants to appear on Price’s radar.
Can’t blame him for calling Price out though, seems like it’s the done thing nowadays for fighters to remain relevant if they aren’t stringing together good wins. Browne isn’t fighting good competition at the moment (Paul Butlin, Hastings Rasani?) so good luck to him if he gets the fight!Posted January 28, 2013 8:27 am
