Former WBA heavyweight champion Lucas ‘Big Daddy’ Browne (25-0, 22 KOs) says the negotiations for a March 24th fight with Dillian Whyte (22-1, 16 KOs) is still ongoing at this time, and he still wants the fight.

Browne revealed that the rumors of him getting $1 million for the Whyte fight are false. Browne says it’s not even $300,000. The Whyte vs. Browne fight is supposed to be taking place at the O2 Arena in London, England. That means it’ll be a hometown advantage for Whyte if the fight gets made.

Browne states that his legal rep tried to contact Whyte’s promoter Eddie Hearn, but he’s not heard from him. As soon as Hearn contacts him back, they can continue with the negotiations. Browne assumes Hearn is on holiday right now.

“I’m addressing the issue about Dillian Whyte and the fans that are delusional that basically believe everything they read on the internet,” said Browne. ”The offer of $300,000 is wrong. It was less than that, and #2, there was never ever going to be $1 million dollars, not 1 million pounds; whatever number you want to say. It’s not a fight worth that much, I don’t think,” said Browne.

”The negotiations are going backwards and forwards,” said Browne about the negotiations for the fight with Whyte. ”I spoke with my legal representative last night. He called Eddie. Eddie Hasn’t returned his call. I’m assuming he’s on holiday for the moment. It may take a week or so, but I’m ready to fight. I’m ready to go backwards and forwards with the negotiations,” said Browne.
