Badou Jack vs. Marcus Browne Betting News
Badou Jack is well respected as a champion of two different weight classes and will have the opportunity to pick up the vacant World Boxing Association interim light heavyweight title when he meets aspiring contender Marcus Browne on January 19 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This will be something of a backyard brawl for Jack as he resides in Sin City and is no stranger to fighting there. Jack held title belts in the World Boxing Council for the super middleweight division from 2015 through 2017 and also held the World Boxing Association light heavyweight title in 2017. Beyond that the Swedish native also was an Olympic boxer for The Gambia in 2008. In Browne he represents a younger contender that has been eager for a shot at a world title. More
