Marcus Browne has long been a knockout in his neighborhood of Clifton, and the light heavyweight contender will earn even more props when he distributes 75 book bags full of school supplies to elementary school students on Sunday.

The giveaway, sponsored by the boxer’s own Team Browne foundation, will take place at Luis Lopez Park in Clifton (on Targee Street, across from P.S. 57) on Sunday from noon to 2 p.m., or whenever he runs out of book bags. Bags will be dispensed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

“I always like to give back to the kids in the neighborhood,” said Browne, a 2012 U.S. Olympian and three-time Golden Gloves champion, who will put his 15-0 pro record on the line on Sept. 12 with a bout against Gabriel Campillo at Foxwoods Resort Hotel & Casino in Connecticut.

The scheduled 10-round fight may make NBC’s Premier Boxing Champions’ 4 p.m. broadcast depending on how the other bouts play out.

Browne Pushed to the Brink, but still Prevails in Style

Written By: Brian Suozzo/Team Browne 

The toughest opponent to date for Sir Marcus Browne brought out grit, determination, and a will to win that Marcus has not had to display in his brief, but successful professional boxing career. Browne gutted out a 10 round unanimous decision over Cornelius White with the judges scoring the cards 99-91 twice and 98-92 respectively. This victory improved Browne’s record to 15 and 0 with 11 knockouts while Cornelius White fell to 21 and 4 and is now on a 3 fight losing streak. Browne’s superior footwork and comfort navigating around the ring allowed him to control the pace of the fight. In the early rounds, Browne overwhelmed White with an aggressive onslaught, often at times trying to throw punches through the defense of his opponent. Getting frustrated with his inability to land clean shots to White’s head, Browne changed his game plan to work the body more to open up his opponent from his defensive shell. This minor adjustment was a profound representation of one of the boxing intangibles that the young Staten Island native possesses. His slick head movement allowed him to slip most of White’s counter punches in an impressive style and assisted in creating optimal angles for Browne to strike. In the later rounds things got a little more difficult for the undefeated Staten Island native. Browne relied heavily on movement and mixed in some effective clinching to neutralize the straight forward coming opponent. The volume of punches and combinations from Browne significantly slowed down. It appeared that Browne’s activity continued to slow more as a result of fatigue rather than adjustments made by White. The aggressive pace that Browne set early on was a difficult one to maintain, but he was able to persevere with his champion mentality in his first 10 round fight of his career. Despite Browne winning a majority of the rounds, many of them were not lopsided. Browne intelligently stole a few rounds with precise late round combinations to swing the judges in what may have been a difficult round to score. At times the fight got a little ugly with each boxer hitting the canvas once, but neither was ruled a knockdown. Browne was able to control the frustrations that White presented to him over the 10 round match to get a clear win, but he was also able to identify more areas to improve. As Browne looks to climb the light heavyweight ranks, difficult fights like the one White presented him, will better prepare him for the upper echelon fighters that are current belt holders. The more seasoned Browne becomes, the more obvious Browne’s readiness for the division’s elite is portrayed.

Browne’s Dominance Continues as he Looks to Rise Up the Light Heavyweight Ranks

IMG_5777 In Sir Marcus’s 14th fight, he continued to roll in dominant fashion despite  the step up in competition.  Browne defeated Aaron Pryor Jr. by technical  knockout due to Pryor Jr. not being able to see at the end of the 6th round in what was  scheduled to be a 10 round fight.  Throughout the fight, Browne remained the aggressor only being slowed by the continuous holding of his opponent.  The undefeated Staten Island boxer looked impressive as he comfortably maneuvered around the ring landing at will and avoiding any significant shots from Pryor.  From the beginning of the fight it was made clear by Browne’s style was to be aggressive.  He overwhelmed Pryor with some strong left hands and stayed persistent despite the constant holding and head butting from Pryor.  Browne did not fall into Pryor’s plans of making this an ugly fight as he was able to effectively land power shots when they broke from the clinch.  In spite of the fact there were no knockdown’s, Browne hurt Pryor many times especially at the end of the second round where it appeared Pryor was saved by the bell.

Many of Browne’s power shots were set up from his digging body blows, forcing Pryor to be conscious of protecting both head and body.  As Browne’s continues to progress through his promising career, he continues to portray the patience of a true champion.  Staten Island’s very own Sir Marcus Browne continues to portray improved maturity, unwavering dedication, and intangibles that make a true champion.

The undefeated boxer appears ready for anything, so the only question we have is Who’s next?

Marcus Browne Still Perfect in the Ring….

TEMECULA, Calif.– Marcus Browne took out his frustrations of losing a televised fight by scoring a first-round TKO over George Blades in a light heavyweight bout Thursday night at the Pechanga Resort & Casino. The contest was scheduled to be the first fight of a three-hour ESPN 2 boxing broadcast (10 p.m. EST start), but the network dropped the bout from the show when Blades — who was a late fill-in for Henry Buchanan, injured in training last week — weighed in at 196.6 pounds, or nearly 20 pounds over the 178-pound light heavyweight limit. “Granted, he got three days’ notice, but the dude didn’t try to lose any weight,” an exasperated Browne said around 5 p.m. Thursday, about three hours before his fight. “I’m sure if he was close to weight, it would still be on TV.”

Boxer Marcus Browne might not be as well known as, say, Floyd Mayweather Jr.,  but the former Olympian and currently undefeated professional is a star on the  rise.

A native of Staten Island, NY, Marcus Browne prides himself on his local boxing roots. The 23-year-old light heavyweight southpaw loves to fight locally and, after seven fights at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Browne has found a home away from home.

A Brooklyn native himself, Getty Images Chief Sports Photographer Al Bello also knows a thing or two about boxing. Having started out working for Ring Magazine in 1990, Bello has covered countless title fights and has photographed the biggest names in the sport.

He has seen the best in boxing for almost 25 years and in Marcus Browne, Bello sees a talented fighter with a bright future. “Marcus works extremely hard at his craft,” says Bello. “He has the desire and the talent to do well, and at the moment his record is 12-0 with 9 KO’s.”

Ringnews24.com Interview

unnamed Written By: Corey Quincy

The Light Heavyweight Southpaw from Staten Island boasts an accomplished amateur background, including winning the 2010 and 2011 Golden Gloves, and the 2012 US Championships before representing the United States in the 2012 London Olympics class, where he was stunned by Damian Hooper in the first round.

Even if he couldn’t shine for the American men in England, Browne was still in the spotlight come his professional debut in November of 2012. On that day, he knocked out Codale Ford in three rounds, and also won his five subsequent fights by knockout.

Despite all he achieved as an amateur, Browne might actually be more suited for the pros. So far, none of his opponents have struck fear into him, as he’s built up a 12-0 ledger, with nine knockouts to his name. Browne is a sharp thinker in the ring, and is good at sensing opponents weaknesses. His lead right hand is as good as his power left, and he continually employs new dimensions to his attack. The most readied foes will still struggle to overcome the multifaceted boxer.

“Sir” Marcus Browne Continues to Roll

photo (2)Written By: Brian Suozzo /Team Browne

In his 7th fight at the Barclays Arena and 12th fight overall Sir Marcus Browne continues to impress. Already with 7 fights at the Barclays, this was Browne’s 5th victory by KO signifying his level of comfort fighting near home.  Staten Island’s own Browne stopped Vasquez in just 28 seconds. Browne who faced an overmatched Paul Vasquez dominated from the opening bell overwhelming Vasquez with a relentless attack until the referee stepped in to stop the fight.  This marks the second fight in a row for Browne where he was able to stop his opponent in the first round.  The light heavyweight came right after Vasquez once the opening bell rang peppering Vasquez with some crisp straight right hands.  After seeing an opening, the southpaw Browne let his hands go landing some clean shots to both the head and the body while backing Vasquez into the corner.  Following two clean hooks to the body, Vasquez touched his rear to the canvas and the referee stopped the fight due to Vasquez being hurt and unable to protect himself.  In the fight Browne showed significant hand speed and power that could compete with anyone in the light heavyweight division.  As Browne continues to perfect his craft, he is steadily climbing the light heavyweight ranks and gaining notice from the division’s elite.  It is clear that Browne is ready for a step up in quality of opponents so it will be great to see the 2012 Olympian get to test his skills against the next level.  The future looks extremely bright for Browne and it appears that nothing will be able to slow down the ascension of the talented yet humble Staten Island native.

Marcus Browne: Young Man in a Hurry

photo There was always something more for Marcus Browne. Even in his early years as a boxer, the Staten Island native consistently had his eyes on the next prize – literally. “I wanted to be a boxing champion,” Browne laughs. “I didn’t say world champion, but a boxing champion. When I was younger I just wanted a belt and that’s what used to drive me. We’d go to the tournaments and get belts, and when I got older, people like Danny Jacobs  and Sadam Ali, they were winning Golden Gloves and I wanted Golden Gloves.

Marcus Browne and Donta Woods“Sir” Marcus Browne remains undefeated against the late sub Donta Woods. Woods replaced the Veteran Yusaf Mack 3 days before the June 27th matchup. Marcus only needed 91 seconds to take out the late sub Woods. It was a combination of a right jab and straight left that dropped Woods and the fight was over. Marcus improves his record to 11 wins, no losses and 8 of the wins coming by knockout.

Ring TV Interview

f8Originally light heavyweight prospect Marcus Browne was scheduled to step up the level of his opposition on this week’s edition of ShoBox: The New Generation against Yusaf Mack.

However, last Saturday the vastly more experienced two-time former world title challenger pulled out, leaving Browne looking for an opponent. Thankfully for Browne, Donta Woods stepped into the breach.

“I’m highly upset because we trained hard for Yusaf Mack and that was a great fight for us,” Browne told RingTV.com while on a his way to Las Vegas from Phoenix airport on Wednesday. “It was a step up fight but he’s going through whatever he’s going through and he had to pull out and we’re ready for Donta Woods.”

Browne (10-0, 7 knockouts) was a highly decorated amateur who represented the U.S. at the 2011 world amateur championships before appearing at the 2012 Olympics.

The London Games was something the 23-year-old New Yorker will never forget.

“What a beautiful experience,” said Browne “Just being in the Olympics is a wonderful thing, just being around top athletes from America and all over the world.”

Along with Browne-Woods, the ShoBox card is headlined by fellow 2012 U.S. Olympian Errol Spence Jr. against Ronald Cruz. Also on the broadcast, heavy handed middleweight Dominic Wade meets once-beaten Nick Brinson. The Golden Boy Promotions event takes place at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev., the broadcast begins at 9:25 p.m. (ET/PT)

Anson Wainwright – Earlier this week your original opponent Yusaf Mack dropped out of the fight and now you face Donta Woods.

Marcus Browne – I’m highly upset because we trained hard for Yusaf Mack and that was a great fight for us. It was a step-up fight but he’s going through whatever he’s going through and he had to pull out and we’re ready for Donta Woods.

AW – Having prepared for Mack, this is a late change, what do you know about Donta Woods?

MB – He’s a righty, he’s a come-forward straight guy so we’re going to do what we have to, box him and have fun.

AW – Would you like the Mack fight to be rescheduled?

MB – Of course, we would love it. That’s who we prepared for, that’s who we had our game plan for but unfortunately he can’t fight.

AW – In your most recent fight you won a shutout decision over durable Otis Griffin. Talk us through that fight?

MB – He’s kind of awkward, it was a good experience, something to go off of.

AW – You’re from Staten Island, N.Y. Tell us about growing up there?

MB – It was rough. There weren’t boxers on Staten Island, except for this one guy I know called N’Wachi Hartley. It’s not a big boxing town. Everyone plays basketball, football. For me to box was kind of weird. I felt like nobody believed in me until I started winning national tournaments and then obviously making the Olympic team, that was the biggest thing, it made everyone believe. It’s not a big boxing town, it’s tough, it’s rough like any other gritty neighborhood in New York City, but I figured out a way to overcome that and focus on the important things in life.

AW – How did you become interested in boxing and then take it up?

MB – I was 13 at the time and I followed N’Wachi to the gym and I met my trainer Gary Stark Sr. and since that day I’ve been boxing ever since.

AW – You were a highly decorated amateur. Tell us about that part of your career?

MB – In New York City the Golden Gloves is one of the biggest things, so I won that three times. I won PAL nationals twice, U.S championships, I won the Olympic trials, and I won the American qualifier. I was like 89-7 with 40 knockouts.

AW – The Olympics must have been an incredible experience?

MB – Yes, I miss that place. What a beautiful experience. Most importantly the English people are very polite and nice people. Just being in the Olympics is a wonderful thing, just being around top athletes from America and all over the world. For me, being from America, being around guys like LaBron James and Kobe Bryant, it was amazing.

AW – How have you found the transition from amateur to pro?

MB – Nothing crazy. In professional boxing, being elite and being great, you have to live the life of a fighter. You have to being willing to grow from every situation in actual fights, even in sparring. It’s been a great transition for me, not the hardest thing in the world but you have to pay attention to the little things.

AW – You’re a light heavyweight. A couple of years ago it was a pretty barren division, but it seems to have really come to life over the past year or so.

MB – Oh man, it’s heating up and it’s a great thing for me actually that the light heavyweight division is picking up and everybody is paying attention to it. I’m blessed to be in this weight division.

‘B-Hop’ is a big homie. To see what he’s doing at his age is a beautiful thing. (Adonis Stevenson and Sergey Kovalev) they’re good fighters but they’re men like me. I’ve got to pay my dues and get there but when we get there we’ll be ready.

AW – What are your goals in boxing?

MB – My goal is to be a legend and leave my mark in the boxing world. I don’t just want to be a world champion. Not everyone can be a world champion, but there has been a lot of world champions, but there aren’t a lot of legends in the sport of boxing.

AW – What do you feel you might have to do to become a legend?

MB – Continue to grow, continue to work hard and live the life of a fighter.

AW – What you like to do away from boxing?

MB – I’m big on family but I’m a sneaker head. I collect sneakers like crazy, (it’s) my number one thing. I like little gadgets, of course shopping, a lot of spending money stuff. I try to work hard.

AW – In closing do you have a message for Woods ahead of your bout with him?

MB – Not really. My message will be delivered in the ring.
