Above photo was taken on August 17, 1989, in San Diego, on the night Tony Deluca defeated Willy Salazar by a split decision to win the NABF Light Flyweight title. It pays homage to the three legendary boxing figures, (l to r) referee Pat Russell, boxer Tony “Bazooka” Deluca and trainer Juan Bustamante.

March 24

At The O2 Arena, London, United Kingdom: they have two tough guys with a lot of heart who never, ever, give up. The 6’4″ tall, 29-year-old Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte (21-1, 16 KOs) from Brixton, London, United Kingdom by way of Port Antonio, Jamaica versus the 38-year-old, nine year veteran, 6’5″ Lucas Browne (25-0, 22 KOs) from Sydney, New South Wales, Australia for the WBC Silver Heavyweight title. Whyte’s one loss was to the champion Anthony Joshua.

For quite some time, Whyte has been involved in a verbal spat with Browne over the various social networks and at their press conference, it was Browne who initiated the verbal sniping. “I just don’t like him,” snapped Browne. “We have said things through the social networks and I am waiting for the day of the fight to punish him. I’ve always had the power on my side. I can fight 11 rounds, lose 11 rounds and then knock him out in the 12th. From that point of view, I’m dangerous to anyone on the planet. I’m absolutely sure that I will keep my position as number 1 in the WBC ranking to then challenge the champion Deontay Wilder.”

As you can imagine, Whyte was of a different opinion: “This is a fight we’ve been trying to settle for a while. We’ve been chasing Lucas Browne, and he’s been running! Browne has no way to stop me. He is old and slow! All he has is power. I’m younger, cooler and I’m going to knock him out!”

Dillian Whyte (l) vs. Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne (r), 12 rounds, heavyweights – should you be a very interesting match.
