Lucas Browne makes light work of Matthew Greer in comeback bout

The 38 year-old Lucas Browne's bid to rebuild his boxing career has begun in the humble surrounds of an outer-suburban social club as he clings to dreams of again becoming world heavyweight champion.

Browne, 38, became the first Australian to claim a share of a heavyweight world title when he stopped Ruslan Chagaev to win the WBA regular belt in front of a hostile crowd in Chechnya last year.

More than 14 months — and two positive drug tests — later, he finally stepped back into the ring and the circumstances and occasion couldn’t be further from that history-making night.

Browne improved his record to 25-0 with a dominant 2nd round TKO win over Matthew Greer — an American journeyman with an unflattering 14-21 win-loss record — at Club Punchbowl in Sydney’s south-west.
