Titles at Stake:
Bitter heavyweight rivals, Lononder, Dillian Whyte, and Aussie, Lucas Browne, battle it out at the O2 Arena. Whyte is the favourite, younger, more active, and on a winning streak since losing to multi-title world champion, Anthony Joshua, in the second toughest fight for the champ to date, Browne, standing a good chance himself, unbeaten, and a former world champion.
Browne looks sluggish as the fight starts, Whyte is cautious, using his jab, boxing at a sensible pace, whilst Browne's timing is off, and he can't seem to get into any kind of rhythm, as the younger fighter looks to be picking him off.
After a couple of cautious rounds, the fight becomes more positive, but no more competitive, as Whyte seems more confident, and Browne seems to become more of a target, he looks clumsy, very sluggish, and Whyte begins to beat him up.
After 5 rounds, it seems like a very one sided fight which Whyte is dominating with no trouble whatsoever, and at the start of round 6, the fight finishes dramatically, as Whyte draws Browne onto a counter he doesn't anticipate, and puts him flat on his face, knocks him out cold.
After the fight, Browne is safe, Whyte makes a statement, calls out WBC world champion, Deontay Wilder.
