Lucas Browne is expecting few problems when he ticks over with a six-rounder in Melbourne tomorrow night.
The unbeaten Perth-based heavyweight faces Auckland-based American Clarence Tillman, who he has already beaten by a wide points margin.
"I'd never take another heavyweight lightly but he's coming off six losses so naturally I'm ultra-confident," Browne said.
The serious business for "Big Daddy" begins in the new year when he fights for the Commonwealth title. Champion David Price relinquished the belt last week so Browne will challenge for the vacant title, probably in February or March.
Browne's career progress also means he will quit WA next month after three years and return to Sydney to train under Lincoln Hudson.
"I can't keep relying on the same three or four people to spar with over here," Browne said.
"Often one is injured or one has his own fight to prepare for.
"The quality and depth isn't here. In Sydney there'll be 30-plus sparring partners.
"It's going to be hard because my three children are settled over here with their mum, who is remarried. That's why I came over, to be with them.
"But I want to see how far I can take my boxing career without having to go to the UK or America."
Browne last fought six weeks ago when he stopped Richard Towers in England to earn his Commonwealth title fight.
