Mind games are well underway between both heavyweights Dillian Whyte and Lucas Browne ahead of their fight next month – Whyte has even started to use some reverse psychology.
The two guys don’t like one another. That much is clear.
But what is that say sometimes, about killing your enemy with kindness.
Well, when it comes to the boxing world there’s not a whole lot of ‘kind’ trash talk that floats about in a business as brutal outside the ring as it is inside of it.
This morning Australian Lucas Browne released the following message to Dillian Whyte:

Instead of biting back, which is what he usually does – Whyte instead replied by simply saying:
“God bless you safe travels.”
The fight between the two will take place on March 24th at the O2 Arena.
The winner could find themselves in position to make a run at one of the world titles later in the year, so all the marbles are to play for as they say.
Browne comes into the fight in better form off the back of a knockout win.
Whyte will be looking to banish a sluggish display last time out from his memory. A points win over Robert Helenius back in October.
