All the details for Dillian Whyte vs Lucas Browne

Dillian Whyte vs Lucas Browne, a high-stakes heavyweight clash, takes place on Saturday (March 24) at the O2 in London. Whyte, 22-1 (16) is the defending WBC Silver champ and that body’s No. 1 contender, albeit not their mandatory challenger. The Brixton behemoth, trained by Mark Tibbs, has lost only to divisional kingpin Anthony Joshua as a pro, but will face a stern test from unbeaten Aussie (Sydney) Browne, 25-0 (22). The latter is a former WBA Regular ruler who was deposed due to a controversial drug test failure in Chechnya after getting off the canvas to upset local hero Ruslan Chagaev.

Rounds scheduled

12 three-minute rounds

Undercard highlights

Two really intriguing 12-rounders are the highlights of an undercard which also features unbeaten hot prospect Anthony Fowler and heavyweight veteran Dereck Chisora. British light-heavyweight champion Frank Buglioni meets Commonwealth king Callum Johnson for both belts and if the national titlist wins he will make history in securing a Lonsdale Belt by vanquishing four unbeaten challengers in succession. Another man rapidly racking up the British title wins is 14-0 lightweight boss Lewis Ritson who won the belt in October, then retained in the first round just under four weeks before this event. He defends against former holder and ex-amateur star Scott Cardle.
