HEAVYWEIGHT sensation Lucas 'Big Daddy' Browne is currently enjoying the bright lights of Las Vegas and has set out his plans to one day box in the world's fight capital.   The unbeaten Aussie is in Sin City to take part in the WBC's 52nd annual convention alongside promoter and former four-time world champion Ricky Hatton.   As well as giving him opportunity to lobby for a world title shot in 2015, it has given Lucas a change to rub shoulders with the sport's true g...

Anthony Upton in seventh heaven

Andrew Wake | 14.12.14 12:53

Red hot light-welterweight prospect Anthony Upton barely had chance to break sweat as he blasted Hungary's Janos Vass in just one round at York Hall on Saturday night. The 22-year-old, who is trained by former two weight world champion Ricky Hatton, looked in no rush, but the action still only lasted 134 seconds. Upton's cleaver stance switching had Vass confused and a straight left set the tone as it rocked the visitor back on his heels. Seconds later, a pair of left hooks c...

Lean mean Lucas sends a warning to rival heavies

Andrew Wake | 27.11.14 05:02

LUCAS "BIG DADDY" BROWNE believes he'll be lean and mean as he presses towards a world title shot in 2015.   The much-loved Aussie puncher was in the best shape of his career when he defeated tough American Chauncy Welliver earlier this month and he says the days of weighing in heavy are over now he's training with the legendary Jeff Fenech.   Browne is also keen to shed his amiable image as he feels a vicious streak is needed in order to get to the top.   "2...

Mundine: Rabchenko can bounce back

Andrew Wake | 21.11.14 03:13

OVER A WEEK on from their competitive 12 round clash in Melbourne, Aussie legend Anthony Mundine says Sergey Rabchenko has every reason to hold his head high.   The former three-time world champion scored a split decision victory over Rabchenko at a packed Hisense Arena last Wednesday and is now targeting showdowns with the likes of Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.   But he feels Rabchenko also has the potential to get in among the 154lb division's eli...


Ogogo wants to be the new Hitman

Andrew Wake | 17.11.14 06:31

Anthony Ogogo says he wants to as popular as Ricky Hatton was at his peak. The 2012 Olympian has racked up seven wins since turning professional and feels his style will help him build a large fanbase.

Ricky Hatton: Credit to Mundine but judges cost Sergey victory

Andrew Wake | 14.11.14 12:56

RICKY HATTON has paid tribute to Anthony Mundine, but he still feels his fighter, Sergey Rabchenko, beat the Aussie veteran.   Mundine picked up the WBC Silver light-middleweight crown with a contentious split decision verdict over the Belarusian in Melbourne on Wednesday night.   It was a display that showed the 39-year-old still has a place among boxing's elite, yet the scoring raised questions as Rabchenko appeared to outwork him for much of the fight and hurt him...
