Australian heavyweight Lucas Browne has officially announced his retirement from professional boxing after suffering a defeat to Hemi Ahio in a recent bout. The culmination of Browne’s career came on the undercard of the highly anticipated showdown between Vasiliy Lomachenko and George Kambosos Jr. in Perth, Australia.

Browne, once a dominant force in the division, faced off against the rising New Zealand fighter, Hemi Ahio, in a matchup that marked the end of Browne’s up and down career. The 45-year-old former champ was unable to withstand Ahio’s onslaught, leading to a definitive stoppage in the ring.

With a professional record of 31 wins, 6 losses, and 27 knockouts, Browne paved his way through the heavyweight ranks, capturing the secondary WBA title during his reign. His career included memorable battles against notable opponents such as Ruslan Chagaev, James Toney, Dillian Whyte, Junior Fa, and Jarell Miller.

Hemi Ahio, a formidable heavyweight contender hailing from New Zealand, emerged victorious in the fight against Browne, solidifying his own position in the division with a record of 22 wins and 1 loss. Ahio’s recent success adds to his three consecutive wins since his sole defeat against Faiga Opelu in 2022.

Following his retirement, Lucas Browne expressed gratitude for the unwavering support received from fans throughout his career. He thanked his supporters for joining him on his extraordinary journey in the sport and acknowledged the significance of his accomplishments inside the squared circle.

Notably, Browne’s manager, Matt Clark, commended the fighter’s remarkable journey from turning professional in his 30s without an amateur background to ultimately achieving world champion status. Clark highlighted Browne’s victory over Chagaev as a significant moment in Australian boxing history.

Throughout his illustrious career, Lucas Browne left an indelible mark on the sport with his tenacity and fighting spirit, captivating audiences with his undeniable talent inside the ropes. Browne’s retirement marks the end of a chapter in Australian heavyweight boxing, leaving behind a legacy that will be remembered for years to come.
