Everyone knows I'm a Pom?
Only difference is your forebears must have done something really bad to have been detained in the home country. Whereas ours were allowed to leave :lol:

What's the general feeling of Lucas Browne, lads?

I know [MENTION=59]Lilo[/MENTION] likes the guy, and I had him on facebook for ages without really realising who he was, then suddenly there are articles up on here about him and I was made up that I knew of him, and before the bandwagon.

Seen clips on youtube, and while he's not technically fantastic, he does seem to have a fighters instincts.
For me Lucas has huge potential. Power, picks the KO punches, hand speed, smart and willingness to learn. His technical skills are probably about what you'd expect for a guy coming across from MMA, no am experience and only boxing for a few years. He has improved leaps and bounds thus far and in the right hands will continue to. Not sure if his trainer Riccardo Monteleone is the man for the job to continue his development but then I really don't know anything about him either. Hopefully gets involved with a few more O/S camps for development.

I wouldnt yet put him in with Kingpin. I dont think he has the tools yet to make JOhnson go into his shell the way Klitshk and Fury did. Though stylistically there are a lot of other high level contenders I think he could upset.

Great to see you here. Hope it stays knob free. They certainly aren't receiving invites from me.

Yeah, I basically just repeat what I've said before:

- No need to rush him. He has 0 amateur experience and only around 13 (?) MMA fights. Fights against the likes of Gavern, Butlin and Wilson were perfectly acceptable for a guy with so little experience.
- He's taking just the right step ups IMO. Yeah Toney probably shouldn't be boxing and is a shell of his former days but he was still the best fighter Browne had faced and was virtually guaranteed to give him 12 rounds (which is what is needed). Take away the Toney name and see it as a prospect fighting a slippery, faded veteran and it isn't a bad fight.
- Genuine, modest fella. Apparently all he wants is a 'to win a few titles and make enough money to be comfortable and maybe have his own gym at the end'. He isn't saying he'd beat Price/Fury/Klitschko right now, hell he's not saying he's world class. He just wants to be OZ#1 first which is a given if he beats Leapai (a fight they both want too).

2013: A keep busy KO1 - Toney - Towers - Leapai - Johnson would be an excellent 2013. If I were his manager I'd be really careful with the Johnson fight who is actually pretty handy when he fancies it (which he would against Browne).

I don't think anyone is saying he's going to be world class but he'll make some interesting fringe fights. Definitely.

Great to have some quality posters discussing relevant topics wihout petty bullshit being involved!. I also heard some murmurings that willie kickett is looking to be fighting more regularly which is always great news, and i hope matty garlett keeps improving,such a humble hard worker with loads of talent.

By all reports, even though he only fought a 4 rounder, Willie looked pretty good a couple of months back. Hope he can get back into it. Always had potential.

BoxRec have Jerkic listed for a fight in August. Looks a great talent, but hasn't fought for a year.

Man I must be living under a rock, I didn't know Kickett fought a couple months ago. That's what having no Foxtel does to ya. :fire
I liked watching him, he could do well if he stayed on the right course.
