BEHIND THE SCENES FOR LUCAS BROWNE'S WBA WORLD TITLE CHALLENGE IN CHECHNYA?
By TOM WATT on Dec 21 2015
As many of you will have seen, long time friend of T2T Boxing, Lucas 'Big Daddy' Browne - the hard-hitting, undefeated Australian Heavyweight - has finally been given a date for his World Title challenge against current Champion, Ruslan Chagaev on March 5th in Grozny, Chechnya.
This may seem like an off destination for a World Heavyweight Title clash, but given Browne's opponent's track record of fighting on home soil and previous visa restrictions, options were limited and it ultimately fell between Moscow and Russia to host this fight.
Chechnya was described by the UN in 2002 as 'the most destroyed city on Earth' but since then an effort to rebuild the city has seen severl impressive structures being built as they try to move away from the lingering scars of a brutal civil war. However the majority of western governments and travel agents strongly advise against travel to the region, particularly given the current geo-political landscape in the area (see map below)

So, as pretty much nobody will be able to travel and support Browne as he looks to become the first Australian to win the World Heavyweight crown, T2TBoxing are hoping to join him on this journey and bring all the behind-the-scenes action straight to the fans!
If we are able to reach our funding goal, we will look to:
At present we are looking for sponsors to get behind this project as we look to support Australia's next Heavyweight World Champion! If you would be interested in being part of this journey with us then please get in touch HERE
