HAMMOND HAMMERS TASCI IN FIVE

LEE'S BOXING DIGEST / PEEP MAGAZINE

2012 Olympian Cameron Hammond stretched his unbeaten pro record to 13-0 and retained his WBA Oceania welterweight title with a blistering fifth round TKO of Sedat Tasci in Narrabri, New South Wales on Saturday night.
Hammond started off by controlling the action behind his jab before stepping things up in the third.
By the fourth Tasci, who is also a former Olympian, was getting frustrated and had to be warned on two occasions for rabbit punching.

LUCAS "BIG DADDY" BROWNE believes a fight between Deontay Wilder and Chris Arreola would be bad for heavyweight boxing.
Browne is set to face Argentina's Gonzalo Basile in Melbourne next month and will turn his attention to his mandatory shot at WBA champion Ruslan Chagaev afterwards.
But he's hopeful of getting Wilder in the ring before the end of the year and feels it will be a barnburner with potentially two belts on the line.
Wilder is expected to defend his WBC crown against fellow American Chris Arreola in the winter. Browne, however, believes the match-up would do little for the Alabama –native's reputation and he should instead give fans the fight they really want to see.
"Nobody wants to watch Wilder v Arreola," Lucas said. "Even if they were giving tickets away, hardly anyone would turn up.
