Browne reputable for his admirable size, inked artwork, aggression in the ring and courteous nature outside the ring will enter the bout coming off an intensive eight week training camp, a gruelling two months that saw him work extensively to burn fat and increase lean muscle mass. "I've been sparring with some of the hardest hitting super heavyweights in WA in preparation for this bout as well as cross-training with the long distance running, bike riding, swimming, heavy weight lifting and high intensity sprint cardio". Heavy hitting sparring partners have included West Australian champions Pieter Cronje, Steve Bonner, Soa Palelei and Mark DeMori.
Promoter Phon Martdee looks forward to hosting a night of nights with the vacant WBC Muaythai World Title between Perth's Tiana Caverly and Japan's Ayano Oishi, the catchweight WBC Muaythai Super Lightweight National Title between Perth's Oley Sakonpetch and Sunshine Coast's Mark Sarracino and the war between former training partners Jamie "The Dragon" Lunghitano and Jon Dowding for the WBC Muaythai State title as well as an explosive undercard of local talent and rising stars.
"Watch Lucas Browne, a reinvented fighting machine, a Lucas Browne you've never seen before."
