Browne To Adonis Stevenson: Give Me My Shot, I Want The Strap

CINCINNATI - Cintas Center at Xavier University, Cincinnati, Ohio - In the opening bout of the evening, Marcus Browne (19-0, 14 KOs) knocked down Thomas Williams Jr. (20-3, 14 KOs) three times on his way to a sixth-round KO (:42).
The southpaw vs. southpaw scrap was chippy from the opening bell.   Browne capitalized on his significant reach advantage and controlled the distance with his jab, as Williams struggled to fight effectively on the inside.
In a bizarre second round, the undefeated 2012 U.S. Olympian scored a knockdown with a straight right and then cracked Williams with a left hook to the back of his head while he was on his knee.

After some confusion, referee Ken Miliner correctly deducted a point from Browne and gave Williams five minutes to rest.  Williams took the nearly full five minute allotment but never seemed the same when he returned.
Browne floored Williams again in the fourth with a counter right hook, Williams beat the count but consistently ate shots as he struggled to gauge the distance.  The third and final knockdown of the fight happened courtesy of a right hook in the opening minute of the sixth.  Williams remained on the canvas complaining of an injured jaw, and failed to beat the 10 second count.
"He didn't' look like he went down, so I made sure he went down," Browne said of the incident in the second round.  "He was trying to stand up in the squat position so I pushed him down a bit more.  He was in a squat - I didn't see his gloves.  I'm sorry.  I wasn't being dirty."
The Staten Island native then called out WBC Light Heavyweight World Champion Adonis Stevenson:  "Adonis, just give me my chance.  Let's go.  I want that strap."

I'm not impressed with Marcus. Hot Rod should get the title shot before him

He won't rematch Kalajdzic... His guys know he took a beating... Not impressed by the fight last night... He should have finish the job much earlier... Stevenson can wait because he's far from ready for him or Kovalev or Beterbiev…

"Dawson took a man! You got your shot, now give me mine!"

Adonis hates being cherrypicked. Only he alone can cherrypick. Stevenson's predictable response is Browne needs to earn his shot first, mark my word.

[QUOTE=Bronx2245;17436680]If Sir Marcus Browne can't get a shot with Stevenson next, he should rematch Radivoje “Hot Rod” Kalajdzic! If he fights like he did last night, he should get a stoppage! "Hot Rod" deserves a shot! Wouldn't mind seeing Browne…
