Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Australia - This could finally be the end for former three division world champion James Toney (74-7-3, 45 KOs), 44-years-old. Toney was beaten over twelve rounds, with ease, by undefeated heavyweight prospect Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne (15-0, 14 KOs), who is promoted by former world champion Ricky Hatton. The scores were 117-111, 119-109 and 120-108. Browne boxed his way to victory and controlled the fight with his physical advantages, like his much longer reach. Toney had nothing left by the championship rounds and was often throwing and landing one punch at a time.
Also showcased on the card, heavyweight contender Kevin “Kingpin” Johnson (29-3-1, 19 KOs) stopped overmatched Solomon Haumono (20-2-2, 18 KOs) in the tenth of a one-sided contest.
