Browne State Confidence
Extending his online wagering reputation as an undefeated champion are Browne’s boastful predictions. Browne told everyone to not blink as a knockout win is coming fast.

Certainly, his comments lead to that concern. Alternatively, Browne claims to have never been as good as he is now. He has stated his growth as a boxer has reached new heights.
