‘The White Rhino’ was made come through a war with an opponent beforehand that he was expected to take care of with ease.
Dave Allen has to be one of the most popular boxers in the UK outside of the big names for his fan friendly personality and willingness to step up at short notice to fight anyone.
Last night his stamina started to go after a few rounds but was still able to get the job done.
That said, his promoter afterwards Eddie Hearn said that Allen had not even really trained for the fight or sparred for it.
Many fans commented that they’d like to see Allen take things more serious as he could go much further if he wanted to.
Allen himself has had this to say:
Just watched the fight back, I got all the moves and I’m strong and got bottle I’m not really missing much from being a really decent heavyweight, i make no promises let’s see where the next 12 months take us whatever happens will be fun ????

The win last night was the third stoppage win in a row for Allen and at just 26 he’s still very young in heavyweight terms just yet.
