Default Lucas Browne - Some Facts.

Some you seem to post a load of bollocks about Lucas with opinions stated as fact and rumour held up as gospel.

Some facts:-

The reason the Haumono fight didn't happen is cos the offer was less than the Col Wilson fight.

The reason he wasn't on Hatton's comeback is because he was headlining the Hong Kong show.

"Browne fought for virtually nothing in his last fight" - incorrect - it was in fact just under double what he was offered for Haumono.


It might be an idea for some of you to find another agenda with regards to posting opinions on various boxers.

Cheers,

Though I find it very hard to believe, I heard Lucas Browne was offered only $2,000 to fight Haumono.

Stop trying to dress mutton up as lamb .. when Lucas steps up and fights someone in an even contest then maybe I will respect him for his ability ..

His handlers are rank amateurs who wouldnt know a left hook from a fish hook and are doing the sport & Browne no favors handling his career the way they have.

He got paid double what he earnt to fight Wilson did he ? Sponsors must have chipped in big time I'd imagine .. Shame they couldnt have done that for a fight with Haumono ..
Healdlined the HK show till Towers pulled out.

Handlers are rank amateurs? Really, you don't think signing with Hatton was a good move then?

Perhaps you could explain...

Handlers are rank amateurs yes .. the person who manages the local bingo center could have done a better job matching him than they have - he learns nothing by feeding him a steady line of journeyman ...

And re signing him with Hatton - has been a disaster .. Hatton looses his own comeback - looses his TV deal and doesnt have the cream of local talent (UK) let alone International talent. So far they have paid peanuts to get ordinary opponents in front of him .. be a realist - records of 12-16 / 21-12-4 and one absolute shocker where the opponent had won just 22 fights in his 94 outings? Put what ever wrapper on it you want - the facts are the facts. Rasani hadnt won a fight 25 outings and had been knocked out by 25 people prior to Lucas .. In his 62nd fight as he was KO'd in the first round by an opponent with a record of just 1-1 ... so what did Lucas stand to gain from that fight ? Yet Ive heard his management say but he gets paid well?

Enough explaining for you John ?

Let me tell you this - Matchmaking is an art .. you need to study your boxers style understanding his strengths & weaknesses and bring him along so he learns something from each fight while earning his reputation. His trainer then gets to polish his skills. A strong right hand isn't going to get him across the line with a genuine top 15 rated fighter. If Lucas gets to 17-0 and gets knocked out I would go as far as saying the mismanagement has cost him his career.
I can't even be ****ing bothered with this. If that signifies a 'win' to you then that's cool. But you have the rationality of Buster and TC's incapability of admitting your wrong, leading in with misinformation. What a combo

John H & Swingin should get a room and play with each other as they both love Browne and Leapai's **** respect for the fighters but these 2 can be banned.

Speaking of the devil where is Swingin

Just on a note got my tickets ready for Browne & Haumono fight a 10min drive over the Queens Bridge with a nice icey cold VICs

A lot of shite gets posted about what Browne and his "handlers" have have done or should have done, I'm just righting those wrongs or at least trying too.

Why should that result in a ban?

With regards to Browne's people not knowing what they are doing.

They have managed to get a guy with 0 amateur fights within touching distance of Comm title and world ranking and signed with a big promoter.

Pretty good, no?

JohnH you would not have a clue about boxing and your stupid statements show you up as a dumb rank amateur.
I would guess one of his handlers has sent you a PM to post this crap cause they are too afraid to do it themselves.
Do us all a favour and piss off.

Signed with a big promoter who doesnt have a regular broadcast contract & has done absolutely nothing for him so far. The last time I checked Boxrec had him rated at around 66 in the world - and only boxed 48 rounds in total because of the bevy of journeymen he has faced ...
Jeff fenech created a world record when he won that title. He also had an impressive amateur career. Mundine also had some amateur experience and a father who was pretty handy himself. Yea sure browne was fed some bums but what else would you do for someone who had no boxing experience to begin with. If they gave him a good opponent in his first few fights and he gets KO'd then you would be calling his handlers amateur.

They have tried to give him some quality opponents of late - richard towers is 14-0 but he pulled out. Takehara drew with leapai and cronje. the problem with having someone with his knockout power is that it can be hard to get matchups but you also dont want to feed him to the lions too quick because of his lack of experience. Give the guy a break he's just another aussie trying to make it in the boxing world and from what ive heard he is a pretty good bloke.

hear hear, there seems to be a lot of animosity from a select few towards lucas, and i can see no apparent reason for it, tall poppy syndrome?
