World heavyweight title contender Lucas Browne (22-0, 19 KO’s) has always enjoyed hurting people. The heavy-handed Australian has been mentioned along the likes of WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, WBA World champion Ruslan Chagaev, and Wladimir Klitschko, who holds three of the four major belts, including the WBA Super belt.
The 36-year old known as ‘Big Daddy’ is a danger to anyone in the division who he can lay his hands on. You add another fighter on the list that he would like to decapitate personally.
Former title contender Dereck Chisora (20-5, 13 KO’s) is back in the news, and he’s not making any friends.
Chisora is more known for his obstreperous behavior rather than his boxing skill. At the weigh-in for his fight against then WBC champ Vitali Klitschko, he slapped the Ukrainian in the face. Although Klitschko tore a ligament in his left shoulder in the third round, he proceeded to dominate Chisora with just his right hand.
The embarrassment didn’t end there. At the post-fight news conference, former champion David Haye interrupted to push his case for coming out of retirement to face Klitschko. Instead, it became a back and forth shouting match between Chisora and Haye, which ended with both of them brawling, and embarrassing themselves in the process.
Haye got the last word, though, as they fought in July 2012, and Haye stopped him in the fifth.
Chisora is trying to keep himself relevant in the sport, but this desperate move may cost him dearly.
According to Lucas Browne, Chisora has accused him of rejecting $150,000 to fight him.
Browne took to Twitter, where he essentially called Chisora a liar.
“So, Chisora says he’s offered me $150k to fight him and I said no??? Why would I refuse such an easy KO like that? Show me the contract, brother,” Browne stated on Twitter.
Browne is scheduled to fight to take on Argentinian Gonzalo Omar Basile on August 14th for the WBA Inter-Continental heavyweight title.
Meanwhile, Chisora fights Beqa Lobjanidze on Friday.
Lobjanidze has lost three times this year alone against the likes of Dillian Whyte, Otto Wallin, and Robert Helenius. They all knocked out Lobjanidze.
