Ruslan Chagaev-Lucas Browne Ordered By The WBA

By Hilmar Rojas

The Championships Committee of the World Boxing Association has ordered the immediate negotiations for a mandatory fight between WBA 'regular' heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev and unbeaten challenger Lucas Browne, who is the highest rated (4) available contender in the division, and the Intercontinental champion.

The time allotted for reaching an agreement is 30 days, with a purse bid being called if no deal is reached. Chagaev has been the regular heavyweight title owner since last July 6 when he beat Fres Oquendo.

Australia's Browne has a record of 22-0, 19 KO, while the champion is 33-2-1, 20 KO.

[QUOTE=Freedom.;15414816]I was just hoping yesterday the WBA should order this fight, but I didn't believe they would. Good to see Lucas Browne finally get a decent payday and a chance to win a version of a title. He's worked hard…
