By Eric Baldwin: Unbeaten #11 WBC, #11 WBO, #13 IBF light heavyweight contender Marcus Browne (19-0, 14 KOs) destroyed former world title challenger Thomas Williams Jr. (20-3, 14 KOs) by a 6th round knockout on Saturday night on Showtime Championship Boxing from the Cintas Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Browne knocked Williams Jr. down three times in the fight in dropping him in rounds 2, 4 and 6. The fight was stopped in the 6th round after the 26-year-old Browne knocked Williams down with a right hook to the head. Williams Jr. stayed down on the canvas pointing to his jaw instead of getting up. Referee Ken Milner then halted the match. The official time of the stoppage was at 0:42 of round 6.

“He was squatting. I wasn’t trying to be dirty,” said Browne about his illegal punch of Williams Jr. in round 2. “Adonis, I wouldn’t do that to you. Give me a chance. Adonis Stevenson, I want the shot,” said Browne about wanting a title shot.

It’s doubtful that WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson is going to give Browne a voluntary title shot. That’s not Stevenson’s style. Stevenson tends to take on fairly soft opposition when making voluntary title defenses.

Browne is likely going to need to earn his title shot by working his way up to No.1 in the World Boxing Council’s rankings if he wants a crack at a title. You never know though. They’re both managed by Al Haymon, so it’s possible that Browne could get a title shot against Stevenson. I don’t think Browne is ready for a title shot against Stevenson. Browne arguably lost his last fight last April in beating Radivoje Kaladjdzic by a controversial eight round split decision. Browne was knocked down in that fight in round 6. Browne was given credit for a questionable knockdown in the 1st round.

2012 U.S Olympian Browne was penalized 1 point in round 2 after hitting Williams Jr. while he was on the canvas following a knockdown. Browne dropped Williams Jr. with a jab to the head. Williams Jr. was crouching on the canvas when Browne teed on him with a left hand to the back of the head. It looked pretty dirty. The referee opted to count to a count of 10 rather than stopping the action to penalize Browne immediately. Williams Jr. was hurt on the canvas from the rabbit punch to the back of the head, so he didn’t bother trying to get up. Fortunately for Williams, the referee gave him 5 minutes to recover from the illegal blow and didn’t stop the fight.

In the 4th round, Williams Jr. was knocked down by a right hook to the head. Williams Jr. had Browne backed up against the ropes when he was hit with a hook and dropped. While Williams was on the canvas, he was talking to the referee. It was unclear what he was saying.

In round 6, Browne dropped Williams Jr. with a hard right hook to the head. The punch caught Williams Jr. clean and dropped him hard on the canvas.

Williams Jr. looked uncoordinated and not mentally into the fight. It’s surprising that he was able to make it to the 6th because he did not look like he wanted to fight. Browne showed the far better boxing skills of the two.
