Lucas Browne urges Eddie Hearn to send Dillian Whyte fight contract

Lawrence Lustig

Former WBA heavyweight title holder Lucas Browne is hoping a deal to face Dillian Whyte can be done over the next few days.

The pair have been linked to squaring off in the first quarter of 2018 and the tough Australian is very interested in heading to the UK for the encounter.

In several social media posts over the past few days, ‘Big Daddy’ has urged all involved to strive to seal the deal soon rather than later.

“There’s a few things to sort out first, like a contract for starters, but I’m looking forward to seeing @DillianWhyte all tangled up again. #sleepingonthejob,” said Browne.

A video update was then posted on Friday as Browne pushes for redemption from two failed drug tests he says were through no fault of his own.

Whyte has been seeking an opponent for a potential outing on February 3 at The O2, but with time running out to finalize who will be in the opposite corner, any clash with Brown could now be pushed back to the spring.

More is set to be revealed soon, although an official announcement would not be expected yet due to the holiday season getting underway.
