DAVE ALLEN responded to a naked picture Lucas Browne shared on social media with one of his own.
Allen is set to fight former WBA ‘regular’ heavyweight world champion Browne on April 20.
Browne has won his last two fights back home in Australia, though he was beaten in devastating fashion by Dillian Whyte last March.
Whyte battered the out of shape Browne for six rounds before flattening the Aussie with a vicious left-hook.
Browne was ridiculed for his lacklustre performance and even worse physical shape – however, the 39-year-old has shared recent pictures showing off a far trimmer shape.
The former WBA champion posted a picture on his Instagram story where he is naked – with only a coloured in space covering his penis.
Allen, known for his comedic personality on Twitter, responded to Browne’s nude social media post by uploading his own version.
‘Big Papi’ uploaded a pic where he coloured in a much large space around his manhood to one up his opponent.
Allen captioned the post: “Big papi 1 ‘big’ daddy 0 @lucasbigdaddybrowne.”
The Doncaster heavyweight boxed six times last year – fighting the likes of Commonwealth champion Lenroy Thomas and 2016 Olympic gold medallist Tony Yoka.
Allen’s biggest career win came against countrymen Nick Webb in July last year, as he scored a devastating one punch KO after an overhand right closed the show.
‘White Rhino’ has pushed for the Browne fight for a long time and told Sky Sports he will attempt to break down the former heavyweight champion.
