On August 22 Matchroom Boxing promises to hold a heavyweight bout of David Allen (18-5-2, 15 KOs) and Hughie Fury (24-3, 14 KOs). Negotiations on this meeting are ongoing, and the boxers are close to an agreement, according to Eddie Hearn.
On Saturday at the boxing evening in Sheffield the British heavyweight David Allen (18-5-2, 15 KOs) had his first fight this year. 27-year-old fighter knocked Doran Darch (12-12-1, 1 KOs) out in the third round, but not everybody appreciated the performance of Allen.
At the boxing evening in London David Price (25-6, 20 KOs) scored 10th round TKO over David Allen (17-5-2, 14 KO). Coach Darren Barker threw in the towel at the end of the round, when Allen in the corner said he could not continue the fight. In the course of the bout Price was able to take advantage of the difference in size and height advantage to outbox his opponent. Thus, most likely, Price saved his pro career further.
Popular British heavyweight Dave Allen (17-4-2, 14 KOs) scored a KO victory in the third round with a one-punch knockout over the former WBA champion Lucas ‘Big Daddy’ Brown (28-2, 24 KOs) in the main event of the evening at the O2 Arena In London. The fight was stopped on the body punch. The time was 0:58.
2016 Olympic heavyweight champion Tony Yoka (5-0, 5 KOs) scored a tenth round stoppage over David Allen (13-4-2, 10 KOs) in the main event of the evening in Paris, France. Yoka dominated the course of the fight and the unanswered series of punches in the final, tenth round, forced the referee to stop the fight.
