The fight will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming services.

The 12-round heavyweight tilt matches Britain’s Dillian Whyte (22-1, 16 KOs) in a major showdown against Lucas Browne (25-0, 22 KOs) of Australia.  The two fighters are looking to move up the suddenly crowded and formidable heavyweight ladder.  A win for either fighter puts them in prime position for a bigger showdown later in the year.

While Whyte has the home crowd advantage fighting in front of a partisan audience, Browne has shown a willingness to travel and will be making his sixth ring appearance on British soil.  Though they have only met at press conferences, the two fighters have sparked a hot rivalry and both are heading into the late March showdown determined to register a convincing victory.

I don't know why, but I fancy Browne by KO. Whyte is not particularly heavy handed or hugely skilled, but he does have a very solid beard. Browne can really bang, and is about as skilled as Whyte.

Can see Whyte outlasting him to a decision. Wouldn't bet on it though like others have said Whyte's nearly been taken out a few times now in addition to the AJ loss. If Browne did get a big win in…

Browne looks huge in that chair but i'm aware that this was filmed on the same week as their presser so he would have probably chopped some of that weight.

Two bulky, clumsy oafs with okay power, poor stamina, and weak defense. I'm putting my money on one of these oafs falling on his ass by round eight.
