Marcus Browne: I Need a World Title Shot, I'll Face Any Champ!

Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York - Unbeaten light heavyweight contender Marcus Browne (21-0, 16 KOs) made quick work of Francy Ntetu (17-2, 4 KOs), as he dropped and battered his opponent early to force referee Arthur Mercante to stop the bout at just 2:15 of the first round.

Fighting for his 12th time at the Barclays Center, the 27 year-old Staten Island native kept his unblemished record intact by utilizing his powerful left hand on the overmatched Ntetu.
 
Browne established his dominance from the start, landing a clean overhand left that dropped Ntetu halfway through the round. The Montreal, Québec native was never able to regain his feet and found himself cornered against the ropes just thirty seconds later. A barrage of powerful combinations landed on the defenseless Ntetu left the referee with little option but to stop the fight with 45 seconds remaining in round number one.

"We worked for this win. He walked into a sure shot and I made him pay," said Browne. "The overhand left caught him and that was the beginning of the end for him. I knew he was hurt.
 
"I need a world title shot. I'm ready to take on any of the champions. I don't have any preferences. I'm glad I put together another great performance here at Barclays Center. I'm going to keep improving until I really become Mr. Barclays Center."
 
Ntetu, who moved up to the light heavyweight division for this fight, had a hard time dealing with Browne's combination of speed and power on his way to the second loss of his pro career.
 
"[Browne] is very explosive, congrats to him," said Ntetu. "He's fast, he's smart and I did not expect him to be that explosive. He got me with his right hook and a straight left.
 
"I was in enough shape to fight for 10 rounds. This is not my weight class, but I don't want to make excuses."

[QUOTE=theface07;18427794]That makes sense in theory but how many PBC title holders have we seen avoiding there "mandatory" challenger? What's the use of having eliminators and mandatory challengers if the title holders aren't forced to make the fight or give up…

[QUOTE=Bronx2245;18426775]True, but if Browne beats Alvarez, he'll be closer to getting the Stevenson vs. Jack winner, both of whom are with Haymon![/QUOTE] That makes sense in theory but how many PBC title holders have we seen avoiding there "mandatory" challenger?…
