Browne sends message to heavyweights "With my power. You'll wake up the next day from sleeping and wonder what the f**k happened."

The much-loved Aussie puncher was in the best shape of his career when he defeated tough American Chauncy Welliver earlier this month and he says the days of weighing in heavy are over now he's training with the legendary Jeff Fenech.
 
Browne is also keen to shed his amiable image as he feels a vicious streak is needed in order to get to the top.

Saunders and Eubank Jr. set to steal the show

It has taken until the last week of November but we can safely say that the best domestic show of the year takes place on Saturday night, in London at the ExCel Arena in Dockland, London. The card, which is being billed as "Bad Blood", features world ranked heavyweights Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora in a rematch of their July 2011 clash, as the nominal main event. However, this fight has been usurped from its position by the real grudge match which is chief support, featuring undefeated middleweights Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Jr., which along with the Froch­Groves epic from earlier in the year, is the most anticipated trade fight of the year.

The heavyweight rematch has been marinating for some time now, originally scheduled to headline Frank Warren's 26 July show, before Chisora suffered a broken hand just days before the fight, forcing a postponement. This must have been heartbreaking for Tyson Fury as he had spent the best part of 2013 waiting on David Haye and his fragile body. Of course, that particular blockbuster never happened, Haye firstly suffering a cut eye in sparring just one week prior to the initial date and then undergoing shoulder surgery prior to the revised scheduled date, bringing that proposed match to a dead­end.

The Tested Vs The Detested: Billy Joe Saunders Vs Chris Eubank Jr

Despite boasting a resume of 18 wins in 18 bouts, it would be fair to say that Christopher Livingston Eubank Junior has had things relatively easy in terms of the opposition he has faced since turning pro in 2011. Although in victory he has at times looked sensational, his opponents have mainly been less than stellar, lowly ranked journeymen. It’s true, there have been murmurs of Chris impressing during sparring with the likes of George Groves and James De Gale and there is still a clip up on YouTube of him seemingly ‘holding his own’ against super-middleweight world champ Carl Froch, however, sparring sessions are essentially fight preparation and a very different experience to boxing ‘under the lights’ of a full to capacity arena. Ultimately, Eubank Jr is still unproven and untested as a professional. The fact he had a relatively short amateur career (in the States) adds further fuel to the mystery regarding just how good he actually is. Who knows how he would cope in the face of true adversity? The mystique regarding the ability of this brash, Brighton raised pugilist is set to become clearer this coming Saturday night when he takes a huge step up in class and faces what will without doubt be his biggest challenge to date.

Glover Wary of Unknown Adaway Threat

Tipton’s Lee Glover is wary of the threat of unknown quantity, Chris Adaway, when the pair go head-to-head for the British Masters Featherweight Title at Walsall Town Hall on Saturday.
The ‘Tipton Slasher’ was due to face former British, Commonwealth and European Champion, Esham Pickering, but the former World Title Challenger was forced to pull out with an injury. Hot prospect, Adaway, accepted the challenge, meaning Glover faces a different threat to the one originally posed.

Pickering, despite his obvious pedigree, is coming to the end of his illustrious career. Adaway on the other hand enjoyed a stellar amateur career that saw him box for England and has recently turned his hand to the professional game. It’s a different test for Glover but one he is confident of passing with flying colours.

A New P4P List as Pac-Man Moves Up

There is no such thing as a “correct” list. Attempts can be made to validate by quantification, but in the end, the subjective nature of any list comparing fighters across different weight categories will be the subject of heated debate and a magnet for many incoming arrows (or worse).

These days, most of the same names appear on each list. With the advantage of compiling mine after the Pacquiao- Algieri beatdown on November 22, 2014 and keeping in mind that a PFP should reflect a current snapshot in time (thus eliminating Hopkins based on his loss to Kovalev and Andre Ward because of his inactivity), here is my list as of November 24, 2014: In compiling it, I carefully weighted and analyzed records, style, chin, KO percentages, skill-sets, quality of opposition, and especially dominance.

A Pound for Pound List as of 11/24/14.
