THE drought has officially been broken.

 
It may have only gone five rounds, but it was dramatic and enthralling viewing as Lucas ‘Big Daddy’ Browne overcame a nasty cut to defeat a courageous Eric Bahoeli in five thrilling rounds.

 
Browne, 35, looked very nervous as he started cautiously, letting the Canadian steal the opening round in a very tentative opening.

 
This changed when Browne floored Bahoeli with a solid right-hand. Amazingly, despite being floored three times, Bahoeli looked lively and posed a threat for the entirety of the five fast-paced rounds.

 
Browne’s cut, earned from a nasty head-clash caused trouble for the Sydney-based Australian, as the doctor threatened to halt proceedings due to the excessive nature of the cut.

 
Urgency began to find itself in Browne’s game as he stormed in for a finish. He proved that despite his limited skill, he can hurt any fighter in the heavyweight division.

 
“As you can imagine, my corner said it was okay. Im just happy I got the win.” said an ecstatic Browne post-fight.

 
“Basically, he hits hard. I was worried about the looping shots. I ducked under one and got the head clash. I sensed the urgency and had to speed it up a bit.” he continued.

 
“I like breaking peoples wills, I knew if I landed one his mindset would change.” explained Browne. “It wasn’t too bad. It was going down the side of my eye, even with my corner telling me it was fine – I was believing them too.”

 
“I was very happy. I was pushing the pace, I was told I had one more round cause of the cut. I know for the fact, Im not silly, Im not the most talented – I know that. I hit hard and I know if I hit you, it’s goodnight.”
