[Video] Dillian Whyte Delivers Bone-Crushing KO on Lucas Browne

Whyte handles business in his HBO debut.

Dillian Whyte needed to make a statement in his HBO debut. He did that by dominating Lucas Browne and leaving the towering Australian motionless face-down on the canvas via a flush left hook in round six.

Any thought of this fight being competitive ceased after the opening round. Browne looked out of shape and sluggish at 264 pounds, his highest weight in three years. Whyte got off first with the jab, dominated inside with uppercuts, and knocked Browne backwards with clubbing overhand rights. Browne’s face opening up quickly with blood gushing from his nose to accompany two swollen eyes and cuts.

The fight should have stopped at the end of the fifth. Browne’s corner opted to send him out for another beating and Whyte put him flat on his face with a left hook.

With the impressive win, Whyte aims to become the mandatory for Deontay Wilder’s WBC heavyweight title. Whyte did his part by profusely calling out Wilder in his post-fight interview.

Wilder is holding out hope to face unified WBA/IBF champion Anthony Joshua, who has his own business to handle March 31 when he takes on WBO title-holder Joseph Parker. But should that Joshua-Wilder not happen, Whyte would be a more high-profile and lucrative option for Wilder than his other proposed opponent, Dominic Breazeale.

The win improves Whyte’s record to 23-1 while Browne suffers his first career defeat at 38 years old, falling to 25-1.

  1. Who you think Ismael, Joshua v Parker then Wilder v Whyte and the winner verses the winner of Joshua & Parker??? I would love to see Whyte & Wilder fight, the build up would be amazing haha

  2. Unfortunately I think Wilder with stay inactive until (hopefully) Joshua beats Parker and then sets up a big stadium or Vegas fight with him…

    1. Your scenario is exactly what should happen I was disappointed with the news this week that Wilder isn’t coming to the UK to be ringside for Joshua-Parker. Sadly, I’m thinking we don’t Joshua-Wilder until mid to late next year.
