|With Marcus Browne, New York Has Produced Another Fighter Of Note|
Marcus Browne is a 24 year old Staten Island native who openly loves God, and likes to frequently take to Twitter. Browne also has his own web page and enjoys interacting with other people.
Oh, and he's an undefeated light heavyweight whose knocked out all but three of his thirteen opponents.
What's more, Browne will be fighting on the undercard of the Danny Garcia-Lamont Peterson PBC extravaganza this April against Aaron Pryor Jr (son of that Aaron Pryor) at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
Although Browne won't be headlining the card that night, he clearly hopes his undercard days will soon be behind him. Like fellow New York light heavyweight Seanie Monaghan, Browne wants people to get to know him. Truth be told, he's been going about it the right way, too...
...by steamrolling over opponents.
Indeed, the former Olympian is an exceedingly fast southpaw who employs rapid fire straight punches. He keeps busy, too, having fought five times in 2014 alone.
He may have his hands full with the vastly experienced Pryor, but if Browne manages to go through Pryor the way howitzer throwing Adonis Stevenson did back in 2011, it will prove to be a short night's work.
And a ton of good publicity.
For Browne is at the point in his career where he can really start to be taken seriously by the powers that be if he keeps winning in impressive fashion. The light heavyweight division is entering a golden age right now, one not seen since names like Spinks, Qawi and Muhammad ruled the landscape.
And Browne is in a position to take advantage of it.
This past Sunday, Browne took part in a group run at a Staten Island park with fans. If things keep going his way, Browne may soon have to go out in public incognito, for big wins mean big publicity.
After all, with major fights now on network television, name fighters might become more famous than they could have possibly imagined.
