Former NRL star Paul Gallen will take another huge step in his boxing career tonight when he takes on once WBA World Heavyweight title holder, Lucas Browne.
The pair will square off at the WIN Entertainment Centre in Wollongong, with Main Event coverage starting from 7pm (Wednesday, 21 April).
Gallen boasts an undefeated record from 11 fights (10 wins, 1 draw), most recently beating notorious heavy hitter and former UFC legend Mark Hunt in December last year. The unanimous decision victory catapulted Gallen’s reputation as a serious boxer, but his newest rival is expected to pose his biggest challenge yet.
A seasoned veteran in the ring with a career spanning more than a decade, Browne’s record is nothing short of impressive. From 31 fights, he’s claimed 29 wins with 25 by knock-out, and suffered just two losses.
In 2016, Browne won the WBA World Heavyweight title after defeating Russian Ruslan Chagaev, only to later have the title taken away when he failed a drug test.
Boxing fans can watch the full card live and with better access to all of the action than ever before, thanks to Main Event showcasing the fight on Foxtel and Kayo.
