AUSTRALIA’S former world heavyweight boxing champion Lucas Browne has a new trainer and a renewed focus ahead of his big fight on the Gold Coast on Friday night against giant American Julius Long.

And he says a break from his British promoter and all-time boxing great, Ricky Hatton, will help him kickstart his way back to the top of the sport.

“Big Daddy’’ Browne has a big battle on Friday in more ways than one – Long is a whopping 216cm tall and 130kg. Power-puncher Browne stands 195cm and will come into the Convention Centre ring at Broadbeach at around 120kg.

The bout is a rematch of their 2015 brawl at the Melbourne Pavilion when Long gave the former bouncer from Perth plenty of problems before losing in Round 9.
