Ricky Hatton: Rabchenko should have too much for Mundine

Andrew Wake | 03.09.14 07:33

RICKY HATTON says Sergey Rabchenko's November 12 clash with former three-time world champion Anthony Mundine is amongst the biggest he's been involved in as a promoter.   'The Hitman', who also trains Rabchenko, has played a key role in world title fights involving the likes of Martin Murray and Ryan Rhodes since starting Hatton Promotions in 2009 and feels this will be an equally huge event.   Mundine was once the highest paid player in Australian Rugby League and h...

Browne far from impressed with Wilder

Andrew Wake | 18.08.14 10:16

LUCAS BROWNE has further staked his claim for a fight with American KO artist Deontay Wilder after watching the Bronze Bomber's lacklustre display against Jason Gavern on Saturday night. Gavern hung around for four rounds before quitting on his stool against Wilder, but was blitzed by Browne inside three rounds during 2012.   And the Aussie believes this factor shows he has the potential to defeat Wilder and take his place as the next in line for Bermane Stiverne's WBC he...
