This will give a fair indication of how far Allen can go I think. Browne is no great shakes but is probably better than Allen's last couple of opponents. To me if Allen has any intention of going anywhere he needs to be beating a 40 year old off the juice Browne up.
:lol:

Browne definitely past best, but still better than Dave last two for sure Jonny. I see it as a pretty good fight. Browne at his peak would have been too tough, but hopefully, if the fight gets made,Dave should beat him now.

Sokolowski should get the Chisora fight on the undercard...
AS a reward for Sokolowski I can go with that. But its a poor fight. Id expect Derelks next opponent not to be TOO tough, but surely a BIT better than Sokolowski??

The Browne who beat Chagaev would have been very competitive with Whyte.
I don't agree at all. Browne looked pretty much as he did in most fights, Chagaev was just shot to bits, and still dropped Browne. When the Whyte fight was made, some people were giving Browne a chance and I said he'd get KO'd because all the evidence was there that he is easy to hit and his chin is average. He was dropped by Scott Belshaw and properly hurt by the KD, and he was dropped again by Travis Walker.

So he was put down in 2011 at the age of 32, put down by Walker in 2013 at the age of 34 and put down heavily again by Chagaev in 2016 just before he turned 37. So when was this peak? He's always been a heavy handed, easy to hit plodder who is susceptible to cuts too.

Sort of like Kownacki. Except that in the Chagaev fight he DID show a bit of boxing ability.

I was just posting that fight to point out when I think his prime was :good
Yeah, that's fair enough. To me, he still looks easy to hit and pretty similar to how he did in his fights earlier and later. But for sure the version that faced Whyte was not his prime, but a prime Browne was still open and one dimensional. You look at the Rudenko fight and his lip is split in the first round and he's tagged and missing in those first 3 minutes. By the midway he's cut as often seems to be the case, and by the 9th it is fought in slow motion and he looks utterly gassed. I think any version of him gets KO'd by Whyte.

I would agree, but as in cut to shreds rather than nailed to the floor.

Browne is no Ali but his best would have tested Whyte in my opinion. But instead we got an out of shape zombie who Whyte just busted up.
