Lucas Browne vs Julius Long : What To Expect?
This Friday night Lucas Browne takes on Julius Long in a tune up bout. The fight will be broadcast through live stream on Australian national television. Browne should win this one early and this serves as a tune up for his WBA world Heavyweight title fight which should be in the early months of next year. The only advantage Long brings into this fight is height,. The American most likely won’t make it out of the first three rounds. An upset would totally halt Browne’s world title ambitions. Their should be a good replay to the full fight video up on youtube the next day.
Also fighting in New Zealand this weekend is Chauncy Welliver against Zoltan Petranvi. Welliver vs Petranvi could be a fun fight, depending which Welliver turns up. When Welliver has turned up motivated he has usually been involved in some entertaining fights. However he’s always out of shape which is frustrating to see. If he lost weight he would clearly be a force to be reckoned with, at least domestically in Australia and New Zealand.
Headlining the Lucas Browne card is Will Tomlinson who fights Adones Aguelo in what could turn out to be a fun fight. Tomlinson has the habit of making bouts which should be easy wins, into fun entertaining wars. The crowds are always happy, so it will be interesting to see how this one plays out. Tomlinson should win, however an upset could potentially be on the cards if the Australian shows some inconsistent form.
In another match up Trent Broadhurst fights Affif Balghecham. Once again I’m not to impressed by this match up, however I wouldn’t be shocked if this turns out to be a good fight. Broadhurst is rarely in a bad fight and he always leaves everything in the ring.
Good to see Australia is looking at putting boxing back on free to air television again.
