Lucas Browne says that he will be able to take on David Price this year with some more experience behind him.

Australian boxer Lucas Browne believes that he will be good enough to go up against David Price at some point this year.

The 33-year-old, who is currently unbeaten, is confident that he can challenge Price for his Commonwealth title when he has had a bit more experience.

"If I have a few more fights and if I prepare myself correctly I will have a good chance of beating him," he told "I'm not silly enough to think I'm unbeatable, but at the same time neither is he.

"Like every well-managed fighter, Price has been tested enough for his skill level at the time and think that he now needs to go up against a big hitter and show that he can also take a hit as well as he can dish one out.

"With a little more experience under my belt, the right fitness, and a good training camp, my power will be too much for him. Either way, it will get people talking, and also shut a few people up."

Browne was originally up for a Commonwealth title eliminator against Richard Towers but it was cancelled after Towers pulled out with an ear problem.
