Lucas 'Big Daddy' Browne Profile
Lucas Browne (born 14 April 1979) is an Australian professional boxer and former mixed martial artist. He made history in March 2016 by becoming Australia's first world heavyweight boxing champion after winning the WBA (Regular) title, but was stripped of the title two months later for failing a drug test.

Three months later, he stopped former NABF heavyweight champion Travis Walker in seven rounds. In November 2013, Browne scored a fifth round TKO of future European heavyweight champion Richard Towers. On 26 April 2014, he scored a fifth round KO of Éric Martel-Bahoéli to claim the Commonwealth heavyweight title.
