Default Lucas Browne v Franklin Egobi - April 26

8 rounds in Melbourne, Browne keeping busy against the experienced Nigerian who was KO'd in ten rounds by Haumono last time out.

Should be easy for Browne after he dispatched of the much more accomplished Gavern easily last time out.

Thanks mate. Yep. Keeps him busy and gets him some Aus exposure on Fox.

He's also fighting before that against a Japanese guy over in Sydney apparently. Looking at the Japanese heavyweights it could be:

Masataka Takehara - 7-7 - Fought 4 times in Oz, drew with Leapai in '09
Rio Hidaka - 10(-0 - Fought twice in Oz
Kyotaro Fujimoto - 5-1 - Beat Tillman/Welliver, lost to Haumono. Never fought in Oz though

Shame the Towers fight hasn't been rescheduled

5' 9" Hidaka is not going to risk his unbeaten record so early in his career against a banger like Browne. The other two are real possibilities, Fujimoto would be the more credible of the two, he should blast him out easily though, quicker than Haumono did.

Browne will KO Egobi and all 3 of those Japanese fighters mentioned.

He is heading for the top. I wish he'd head to Europe full time to fight some real quality. All this talk of fighting bums like Kimbo and Leapai does him no good at all...

I'm not sure we can call Leapai a bum Just yesterday Lucas stated he wanted to be considered Aus' best HW by the end of the year, taking on Huamono and Leapai.

It's been one of the biggest gripes hardcore Aus boxing fans have had that the Aus HW's dont fight each other. But it sounds like it might just happen
Take Demori out of the equation since he's stated he's not interested in fighting Aus HW's.

Alex Leapai is our best heavyweight and Haumono is busy again and in form. Lucas Browne against either of these two makes for a good Aussie heavyweight fight. Something we don't see enough of these days.

de Mori doesn't fight Aussies and doesn't have a following here. It makes sense for him to head overseas. Though if he intends to keep his ranking surely he needs to start fighting opponents who still have a pulse.

Hopefully Browne v Leapai happens this year, I have a feeling Browne will handle Leapai quite easily and surprise a lot of people...

Lucas Browne would need to keep his hands up a lot more than he did against Jason Gavern, or Leapai will dong him out of there real early.
