Marcus Browne: I Wasn't Consistent Enough or as Effective

Uniondale, New York - The main event on FS2 and FOX Deportes saw Marcus Browne (22-0, 16 KOs) work through a mid-round knockdown on his way to a unanimous decision victory over Lenin Castillo (17-2-1, 12 KOs) in their 10-round light heavyweight bout.
 
"I wasn't consistent enough or as effective as I wanted to be tonight," said Browne. "I fought in spurts too much. I need to be more consistent to get the performance I want.
 
"The knockdown felt like a slip to me, but this is boxing. I just had to keep focus and move forward to get the win."

The Staten Island-native Browne showed off his impressive speed and jab through the early rounds of the fight, keeping Castillo's offense at bay. As the fight opened up in the middle rounds, Castillo caught Browne with a right hand during a wild exchange that knocked him off balance and caused him to hit the mat.
 
Browne was able to recover and continued to show off his boxing skills throughout the remainder of the night, as Castillo was unable to replicate his round five success. The judges saw the fight for Browne by the scores of 97-92 and 98-91 twice.
 
"I appreciated everyone who came out for me tonight," said Browne. "I'm ready to move on to the next challenge. I'm going to stay focused and be even better next time."

The opening bout on FS2 saw rising unbeaten prospect Gary Antuanne Russell (7-0, 7 KOs), younger brother of WBC Featherweight World Champion Gary Russell Jr., deliver a powerful first round knockout over Mexico's Jose Esquivel (10-7, 2 KOs).
 
Russell threw a right hook to the head and followed it up with a perfect left hook to Esquivel's stomach that put his opponent down for good, with the official stoppage coming 25 seconds into round one.

[QUOTE=Lemonhead_Jeff;18998865]Alvarez was an underdog & unappreciated. Who at light heavyweight would not have been an underdog against [B]over-rated Kovalev[/B] up until last night? I don't think Alvarez is the only light heavyweight who was capable of doing that to him…

[QUOTE=Lemonhead_Jeff;18998764]I'm not sure what happened with his legal problems, but I'm sure Kovalev and Duva wish they had stuck with their original plan of fighting Marcus Browne [B]instead of Storm Alvarez.[/B][/QUOTE] Everything becomes clear AFTER the fact. How much of…
