Paul Gallen vs Lucas Browne, Lucas Browne retirement, reaction, boxing 2021, next fight, news,

It was a sad, sorry day for Lucas ‘Big Daddy’ Browne but the 42 year old has vowed to fight again despite calls for him to hang up the gloves.

One of Australia’s greatest-ever heavyweights, and the first to ever hold a world championship belt, Browne looked a shadow of his former self as he was battered in just a couple of minutes by Paul Gallen.

Rocked by an early Gallen right hand above the year, his balance was gone. So too was the once-formidable chin that allowed him to recover from a knockdown to win his world-title bout with Ruslan Chagaev in 2016.

This time, there would be no miraculous comeback. He got up once, but swarmed by the smaller man, he crashed to the canvas again – and was lucky to be spared further punishment by staying down.

Former world champion Barry Michael declared on Main Event: “His resilience is gone. When a fighter’s shot, a fighter’s shot. Lucas Browne should never consider venturing into a ring again.”
