Paul Gallen and Lucas ‘Big Daddy’ Browne do not like each other.
And whilst Browne stayed considerably civil as they sat down together on Tuesday, it was Gallen who did not pull any punches in the pair’s very first official press conference.
Speaking forward of their April 21 heavyweight contest in Wollongong, Gallen questioned Browne’s legacy and ripped his “b*tch t*ts” in a relatively one-sided exchange.

‘HE’S Likely TO BE ON SOMETHING’: BROWNE’S BRUTAL SWIPE AT GALLEN
Gallen (10–1) is coming off a December victory around Kiwi fight great Mark Hunt, whilst Browne (29-two-), a previous environment champion, final fought in November a TKO victory around John Hopoate.
Browne identified as himself the “GOAT” of Australian heavyweight boxing his crowning achievement a 2016 gain around Ruslan Chagaev that earned him the WBA (Typical) heavyweight title.
Not impressed, Gallen compared Browne’s title to “reserve grade” football.
“He received a edition of the environment title,” Gallen reported. “He wasn’t the WBA champion at all. He received a edition of a environment title.
“I would liken it to a reserve grade competitors in rugby league. If you gain a reserve grade competitors, you do not operate all over telling everyone you received the NRL Premiership, which is what he does.”
Not halting there, Gallen, 39, included: “I saw him yesterday. I did not know irrespective of whether to give him a bra or not — he’s establishing a minor little bit of b*tch t*ts. Probably some of the nutritional supplements around the years are setting up to get impact. My missus basically saw it and reported, ‘Give him a bra.’
“I reported, ‘Darling, he’s most likely too major for you, people b*tch t*ts.’ So, I’m a minor little bit anxious about that. We’ve spoken about testing.”
Browne took the superior road, but made obvious he wasn’t satisfied with what had been reported as he admitted he felt disrespected by equally Gallen and the Australian boxing local community.
“I do not truly like what he claims most of the time in regards to me,” Browne reported. “Calling me a bum and stating he’s got far better items to do at the close of the year, it does kind of rub me the improper way thinking about I’m the most effective heavyweight we’ve had in Australia.”
Even though Browne gave Gallen “full respect” for what he’d managed to complete, the forty one-year-aged included: “I however want to punch him in his facial area.”
