Lucas Browne: I want Harrison, Price and Fury

Australian puncher Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne is aiming for a hat-trick of British knockouts.

The undefeated 33-year-old has boxed twice in the UK already and says he is prepared to get his passport out again if fights with the country’s best heavyweights can be arranged.

“I would like to fight Audley Harrison, David Price and Tyson Fury, in that order,” Browne stated.

“I don’t know much about Harrison other than he’s getting old and the majority of the UK public want me to bash him into retirement.

“As for Price, I’ve heard his chin was a little soft in the amateurs. In saying that, I won’t know for myself until I hit it, but against Tony Thompson he did go down from what looked like a soft punch.”

If Browne was to beat Liverpool’s Price for the Commonwealth title, it would make him the first Aussie heavyweight to hold the crown since the legendary Peter Jackson back in 1892.

But he says he’s not one for history and just wants to focus on becoming the best he can be.

“For me the major incentive is to get better and learn more,” Browne explained.

“My focus is to be world champ and to provide for my family, the Commonwealth title is a step in that direction.”

If a showdown with the aforementioned Brits cannot be made, then Browne will look to assert his dominance down under.

The Perth-native has already been the Australian champion, but knows he’ll have to face Alex Leapai if he is to truly establish himself as his country’s best.

He said: “Alex is a gentleman in and out of the ring, but I want to be known as number one in Oz and to do that I need to show the public how my skills have progressed by beating him.

“It’s a fight that the whole of the Aussie public have been waiting for and I think my style, size and power will be too much for him.

“He is strong but only in the early rounds. He doesn’t have an affective jab and throws wild punches. I will outbox him.”
