Lucas Browne-Andriy Rudenko is Set For August 1
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Lucas "Big Daddy" Browne will take on unbeaten Ukrainian puncher Andriy Rudenko at the Civic Hall in Wolverhampton, England on August 1.

The heavyweight pair will contest the vacant WBA Inter-Continental title as well as Browne's WBC EPBC crown.

Rudenko is arguably Browne's toughest test to date. Promoted by the Klitschko brothers' K2 Ukraine, the 30-year-old from Dnipropetrovsk has halted 16 of his 24 opponents and will be looking to score a major scalp.

For Browne, the fight presents an opportunity to press further towards a world title fight. The heavy handed Aussie is ranked in the top ten by the WBC and IBF and currently placed at number 12 by the WBA.

"I've never seen Rudenko, but if the Klitschko's believe in him then he must be a good fighter," Browne, 20-0 (18 KOs), said.

"This is the sort of the opponent I need now. I want to fight for a world title in the next 12 months and to get a shot you've got to beat these kinds of guys.

"He's got 16 knockouts so he can obviously crack, but I'm not worried. I can take a shot and I know if I catch any heavyweight on the chin, he's going to sleep."

Matt Clark, Browne's co-manager, added: "This is another huge fight for Lucas. Rudenko was due to fight Chisora earlier in the year and he is certainly no mug. It's two undefeated fighters going at it and fight fans should be in for a great bout.

"Lucas is getting close to landing a big, big fight and a win here should jump him even further up the rankings.

"I believe he's the first Aussie heavyweight to be ranked by the WBC, WBA and IBF across the board and he's ready to make his assault on the heavyweight division."

Browne v Rudenko is the chief supporting contest to Frankie Gavin's European welterweight challenge against Italian southpaw Leonard Bundu.

rudenko will be stepping up in class not browne. we will see if he is a pretender or someone to keep an eye on. browne is a lance whitaker clone so he can be hit & is slow as a turtle. let's see if rudenko can take a big HW punch...

[QUOTE=Scott.Weiland] I would like to see Browne face a tougher opponent than this,ie a Chisora level, opponent say Dimitrenko,Hammer,Ustinov or Brian Minto[/QUOTE] LOL, These four are not on Chisora Level, i think Rudenko beats all 4 of them. Browne vs. Rudenko is a good fight!

comment by Badzi87, on 07-02-2014
Rudenko is a small HW but the last 11 of his 12W's have came via KO/TKO and from what i've seen on youtube he takes a good smack, Browne may finally have his first live opponent. Anyway both have horrible technique but carry fight ending power :) Still favour big Lucas in this though, more prove...

[QUOTE=Hougigo]Down for a Hammer fight. He was rising last year... not much happening this year[/QUOTE] I was scratching for names and thought of Wach too,when is he due back from ban or has it been lifted already ? I know the guy is sparring Del Chisora and wasn't he penciled in to fight Jenn...

[QUOTE=Scott.Weiland]Browne has a big punch but awful technique.I expect Rudenko to fold around the third round once he starts to take rounds and Browne realises he needs to rely on his power to win as he has nothing else going for him. Sub level fight,a fringe contender facing a D level oppon...
