Lucas Browne: Wilder Didn't Impress, I'd Knock Him Out!
Gavern hung around for four rounds before quitting on his stool against Wilder, but was blitzed by Browne inside three rounds during 2012.
And the Aussie believes this factor shows he has the potential to defeat Wilder and take his place as the next in line for Bermane Stiverne's WBC heavyweight crown.
"I think the Gavern fight showed that Wilder may not be all people say he is," Browne, 21-0 (18 KOs), stated.
"Gavern wasn't in great shape and it took Wilder four rounds to get rid of him. When I boxed Gavern he was younger and fitter and I still took him out earlier and in better fashion.
"I know comparing results doesn't tell the full story, but I honestly believe I hit harder than Wilder and I could knock him out.
"I was recently asked what my dream fight would be and I said Wilder straight away. I don't know him personally so I can't really say I don't like him, but I'm not a fan of his persona and I think it would be a great clash."
Despite racking up 32 knockouts from 32 professional fights, Browne does not see a lot of quality on Wilder's ledger and feels the Tuscaloosa, Alabama-native could be found out as soon as he's in with someone who can take his shots and then give some back.
"The truth is, he's never had to fight his way through a war and his chin is yet to be tested. I think if I fought him and I landed on his chin, it would all be over," Browne said.
"He's ranked number one by the WBC without him really having to fight anyone of note so well done to him and his team for that.
"If he fights Stiverne before he fights me then I hope he wins because I'm rated number eight and he could defend against me. Even if he loses, I'll be ready and waiting. I'm more than happy to fight Wilder wherever he wants, whenever he wants."
Browne recently added the WBA Inter-continental title to his WBC EPBC and Commonwealth heavyweight championships with a unanimous decision over the previously undefeated Andriy Rudenko in Wolverhampton, England.

I guess he didn't get the memo like the rest of us did that wilder was toying with this guy and trying to get a few rounds in to try some new things. What a tool this herb is trying…Comment by Enzo Mc is SHIT on 08-18-2014
