RICKY HATTON, promoter of Australian heavyweight Lucas Browne, hopes to secure fights with the likes of Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua for his charge.

Browne fights Ruslan Chagaev for the WBA ‘regular’ heavyweight title in Russia on Saturday and while Lucas cannot claim to be a true world champion should he win, he will be in a position to secure big fights.

With Fury holding the full WBA title and Joshua challenging IBF champion Charles Martin on April 9, Hatton is confident about the prospect of Browne fighting either one.
