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.

8 Dave Allen hit back at Browne's post as he one upped his opponent by colouring in a bigger space around his manhood
‘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.

Allen said: "I would fight Lucas Browne in a phone box and that's all we're going to need, it doesn't matter. Wherever the venue, whatever the day it is, I'm happy.
"I'm going to have a proper 10-week camp.
"I'm not going to attempt to box him, I'm going to break him down."
