Lucas Browne: I’ll fight Chagaev anywhere

Heavyweight Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne admits he’s been waiting by the phone in anticipation of getting his World Boxing Association heavyweight title shot against “regular” world champion Ruslan Chagaev. The big punching Aussie was made mandatory challenger for the crown in February this year, but his challenge was pushed back after Puerto Rico’s Fres Oquendo managed to obtain a court ruling that allowed him to jump the queue and face Chagaev in a rematch of their July 2014 encounter.

However, Browne now finds himself as next in line again due to Oquendo having to withdraw from an October 17 date due to a shoulder injury sustained in sparring. Both Browne and Hatton Promotions are keen to begin negotiations with Chagaev’s team regarding a clash to held either before the end of the year or in early 2016, but are still waiting on the WBA issuing a clear resolution.

By Dave Spencer

Two months after the ill-fated comeback attempt of 51-year-old Donovan ‘Razor’ Ruddock, another ghost of Canadian heavyweight title challengers has resurfaced.

In the first round, Gallimore’s left jab frustrated Ryskeldiev who became the aggressor early on in the opening half of the fight. With a tremendous amateur background of nearly 200 fights, many ringside observers expected Ryskeldiev to finish Gallimore. However, by round five, Ryskeldiev began to show signs of fatigue, throwing less punches than he had in the previous rounds and holding when necessary. (more…)
