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.”

TEAM BROWNE would like to thank Al Bello (@albello55) and Getty Images for working with us.

We would also like to thank Alex Trautwig for the story and his help with the photoshoot.

We also want to thank Bruce Bennett for letting us use the pool.

Thank You !!

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.

Post Fight Interview

91 Seconds

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.

Quotes from Marcus Browne on Media Day

12713

Marcus Browne, Light Heavyweight Prospect and 2012 U.S. Olympian

“I’m ready to show my growth from the last fight and put on a show. I like to have fun and make it look easy. I’m not trying to go eight rounds. I want to end my year on a good note and progress into 2014. My training was great, I was on weight a month and a half ago because I never got out of the gym.”

[Regarding his opponent Kevin Engel]

“He’s tall and a righty. Past fights can be deceiving, but he didn’t look fast. I’m going to use that to my advantage and work my speed.”

Team Browne: Q and A with Marcus Browne

ny_g_browne_b1_400Team Browne caught up with “Sir” Marcus Browne to ask him some questions about his previous win over Lamont Williams on September 30, 2013 at the Barclays Center:

  •  Team Browne:  This was your first fight going the distance, how did you feel ?

MB: I felt good. I was in shape to go 8 rounds, but I didn’t really want to go the 8 rounds. I took a lot from it  and I am happy that now I can watch this fight on video and learn from it. Help me correct my mistakes.

  •  Team Browne: Did you want to go the full 8 rounds to display your boxing ability?

MB: Honestly, It wasn’t planned to go 8 rounds, I guess I was getting knockout happy because all my other fights ended by knockout and I didn’t expect this one to end any differently, But it did. I had a crafty guy in front of me and it was a great learning experience.

  • Team Browne: Did Lamont hurt you at all ?

MB: Nah, not necessarily. I wasn’t in any type of crazy danger. He didn’t hurt me.

  • Team Browne: What did you think about Lamont’s performance?

MB: His record didn’t add up to how he fought as a fighter. He had a lot of movement, and the way he moved was of someone with a lot of experience. I realized that a little bit into the fight, but that didn’t change anything. I mean, I could have been a little more aggressive, but I didn’t wanna get caught falling in, because that’s what he was waiting for. He was waiting to counter me, but at the same I was trying to make him react so I can counter him. I did feel like one of the scorecards was too close, but besides that I think I took care of business.

  • Team Browne: What would you rate your performance vs. Lamont?

MB: I’ll give myself a B minus for that fight. I definitely showed that I got agitated and aggravated with him. Like I said before, that’s just something I can sit back and learn from and understand that I cant let that happen again. I just have to stay focused and stick to the task at hand and that’s exactly what I am going to do.

  • Team Browne: When is your next fight?

MB: My next fight will be December 7th on the undercard of Paulie Malignaggi and Zab Judah at the Barclays Center.

  • Team Browne: How many rounds?

MB: It will be scheduled for 8 rounds

  • Team Browne: Do you know who your opponent will be ?

MB: I am not sure who my opponent is, but I will make sure I am in the greatest shape to take care of business and put on a show for the people.

  • Team Browne: Last question, Paulie or Zab?

MB: (Laughs) I got Paulie, I love Paulie.  Of course, Zab is a lefty from New York City and he was one of the guys I used to look up to coming up as a kid, but Paulie is my guy and I wish nothing but the best for people that I know personally.
