Team 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.
