Huni victorious, takes aim at Browne, Leapai

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Australian heavyweight champion Justis Huni (2-0, 2 KOs) stopped Arsene Fosso (3-1, 3 KOs) in round four of a nationally televised bout to defend the title successfully in Brisbane on Thursday. Huni controlled the contest from the opening bell connecting with accurate combinations consistently. Referee Phil Austin called the fight off in round four at 1:07 with Fosso in trouble.

Huni has signed to defend the Australian title against former WBA heavyweight champion Lucas Browne and former world heavyweight challenger Alex Leapai in 2021. The 21-year-old Huni was a bronze medalist in the 2019 world amateur championships.

In other action, middleweight Isaac Hardman (8-0, 6 KOs) outscored Tej Pratap Singh (16-5-3, 8 KOs) by majority decision over ten rounds to capture the IBF Pan Pacific and WBO Oriental titles. Scores 98-92, 97-93, 96-96.

  • Justis has the Australian heavyweight title and defended it and he’s 2-0? He’s young and talented but needs to be careful at the age of 21 fighting bigger experienced fighters.

    • Yep – Browne has been slating Huni saying he won’t fight somebody so inexperienced. To busy trying to hold onto his 29-2 record to actually fight anyone, too busy complaining about rugby players getting paid more than him
      and hanging onto being Australia’s first HW champ (regular champ that is) not sure how you call yourself world champ when there was a fighter above you in the same sanctioning body.
      Huni will smash Browne!

    • You guys are bugging. I doubt his handlers would let him get in with Browne at this point. Besides Huni is going backward to compete with kids as an amateur in the Olympics.
