Lucas Browne
"Big Daddy"









Lucas Browne is a former kickboxer and mixed martial artist, but he is best known for his achievements in professional boxing. With a professional record of 31 wins, 4 losses, and 27 of the wins coming by knockout, he is undoubtedly one of Australia's most elite fighters.

Born on 14 April 1979, Browne made his professional boxing debut against Jason Keir on 20 March 2009. He won the fight by 4th round KO, and this marked the beginning of a long and prolific career in boxing. After his debut, he went on to win 24 more consecutive fights, with 21 of those wins coming by stoppage.

Browne has fought a total of 35 times in his professional boxing career, with 31 wins and 4 losses. Of the 31 wins, 27 came via knockout, and there were no draws or no-contests. All four of his losses came from stoppages. He suffered his first loss against Dillian Whyte on 24 March 2018, via a 6th round KO. This defeat ended his impressive 25-fight win streak.

Browne's most recent fight took place on 18 March 2023, against Jarrell Miller. Although it was a non-title bout, the fight was crucial to Browne's career, as it could have catapulted him back into the heavyweight title mix. However, he lost the fight via 6th round TKO, ending his chances of making an immediate comeback.

In his career so far, Browne has won one world title at heavyweight. On 5 March 2016, at the age of 36, he had his first world title fight. His opponent was Ruslan Chagaev, and the two were competing for the heavyweight WBA (Regular) title. Browne won the title by defeating Chagaev via 10th round TKO, making him the heavyweight champion of the world. Although he has not yet had a chance to defend his title, this remains one of the highlights of his professional boxings career.

Some of Browne's notable victories include wins over Hall-of-Famer James Toney, Junior Fa, Ruslan Chagaev, John Hopoate, Julius Long, Matthew Greer, Chauncy Welliver, and Travis Walker. He has also held multiple regional heavyweight championships, including the Australian and Commonwealth heavyweight titles from 2012 to 2015.

Browne's most recent fight was against Junior Fa on 5 June 2022. In what was a title fight for the WBA Oceania heavyweight title and the vacant IBF Australasian heavyweight title, Browne emerged victorious via 1st round KO. The win marked another impressive achievement in his career, proving he still has what it takes to compete at the highest level.

Browne's remarkable career and legacy have not come without controversy. In 2016, he tested positive for the banned substance Clenbuterol after his fight against Ruslan Chagaev. The result was overturned, and Browne was stripped of his title, ending his reign as the heavyweight champion of the world. He later claimed that he accidentally ingested the substance while taking legal supplements and denied any wrongdoing.

Browne has had an eventful life outside of the ring. Before becoming a professional boxer and mixed martial artist, he worked as a nightclub bouncer in Kings Cross and played rugby league football for the Parramatta Eels under-18s in the S. G. Ball Cup. He even made it to the top 50 of Australian Idol in 2004.

In conclusion, Lucas Browne is a formidable boxer with an impressive professional record. He has won world and regional titles and has put together an impressive string of knockout victories throughout his career. Although he has faced some challenges and controversies, he remains an elite fighter who will undoubtedly be remembered for his contributions to the sport of boxing.
