Aussie Boxer Lucas Browne Is 'More Than Willing' To Step Up And Fight Tyson Fury

Lucas Browne has set his sights on a bout in December against none other than Tyson Fury.

The Gypsy King's highly-anticipated trilogy with Deontay Wilder looks set to be axed - but there's a certain Aussie boxer keen on stepping up to the plate if called upon.

With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to plague live sports events around the globe, it appears two-time heavyweight world champion Fury has turned his attentions elsewhere to other opponents.

It's no secret that Wilder's stalling in negotiations has frustrated the two-time heavyweight world champion, with Fury now claiming that he has 'moved on' from that potential trilogy fight.

But instead of resting on his laurels and waiting until Wilder is finally ready, Fury is clearly keen to keep the ball rolling and has been working closely with promoter Frank Warren to find him a fight in 2020.

While one potential punching bag includes Oscar Rivas, another name has also been thrown around in the media - and he's certainly got the credentials that has left boxing fans licking their lips.

Australian heavyweight Lucas Browne has clearly seen the latest headlines tipping him to be Fury's next opponent - and he likes the sound of it.

The 41-year-old took to social media to share his thoughts.

"Woke up this morning to the awesome news that Tyson Fury is possibly looking at myself as the number one candidate for a fight in December," he said in a video via Twitter.

"The Fury and Wilder fight is no longer happening and he wants some sort of warm up fight for the (Anthony) Joshua fight.

"Now, if that is me, I'd be more than willing to jump in, it would be an absolute honour to jump in the ring with the Gypsy King, who I believe is one of the best heavyweights on the planet at the moment.

"In saying that, wouldn't it be awesome for me to knock him out and have all these fans hate me at the same time. That's something that I would absolutely love to happen.

"As I said, it would be an absolute honour to share the ring with him, I will be going in there to knock him out - that would be the plan.

"I could be losing 11 rounds and still knock you out with one punch in the 12th and that's why I am always going to be dangerous no matter what. I can look like s*** and be losing the fight but still knock you out.

"Tyson Fury, thank you very much for the consideration, I do hope it comes off.

"I am training and waiting for a fight. COVID has obviously put a stop to a lot of things at the moment and hopefully this could be something that really changes my life as well.

"I'll be training my arse off and waiting for the phone call."

If the multiple reports are correct, that third fight between Fury and Wilder is well and truly off.

But with the Gypsy King still itching to get back in the ring, he's been left frantically searching for an opponent for a proposed bout in 2020.

And while Browne's Twitter video was hardly an expletive-littered trash-talking call-out which slated Fury to the ground, it's hard to deny that the two heavyweights wouldn't go to war if they went toe-to-toe.

If this fight happens, it could be special.
