Those gathered, including boxing commentator and local legend Teddy Atlas, spoke about Browne’s inspiring dedication and perseverance to his craft. After BP Oddo congratulated him and proclaimed July 6th as "Marcus Browne Day," Browne did a brief workout for fans.
"We're proud of him," said BP Oddo. "As he grows with his success in the ring, so, too, does his stature outside the ring. He's a role model for others to follow, and he recognizes that.”
Browne’s big fight against Monaghan will take place on July 15th at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
