Can't fault him for wanting to take big fights and earn some money. At least we aren't slagging him for ducking fights.

You can definitely fault him for not taking the game seriously and committing to it and being grateful of the chances hes been given beyond his talent

Hahahahaha yes I would love to see this. “Brain damage is temporary, banter is permanent”, someone said that to Allen once on twitter. It’s actually going to happen.

A lot of people overrating Gassiev, he's only gonna get slower when he steps up to heavyweight.Did he even throw a punch against Usyk? Dave in 8..

Maybe they are mate,

but Allen moves like hes underwater and is unable to slip a slow jab. Gassiev may not go on to dominate the HW div but he is levels and levels above Papi de la Attention Seeker.

Suicide by pro boxing career is a new one on me.

Anyone catch what Richard Towers was saying about Allen on the tris Dixon podcast?

No weren't they meant to box the night Allen fought Gavern
Not sure when it was but he said that he was offered it. He was talking about sparring him and how Allen did 12rds without a mouthpiece and told him he enjoyed getting punched!

Brendan Ingle’s comment about Allen was something like “He’ll be blowing bubbles when he’s older!”

Allen just got pummelled into submission by a british level fighter, what does he think will happen when he fights a world class one?

I can understand that but he's being overmstched ta fuck here and has been done so in the past before with the Ortiz, Whyte and maybe even the Yoka and Price fights. Actually he was overmatched in the end as he got a pasting in both of them. Yeah he's tough as nails but his actual boxing ability doesn't come close to it. He's a living punching bag in there against the likes of Gassiev. Gassiev has knocked out far better fighters than Allen and likely will KO bigger and better fighters than Allen again.

Allen should take a 6 rounder and say hes rededicating himself like Price did loads of times, fighting Gassiev is like Khan fighting Canelo but somehow Khan is still fine lol

That's cos these days the first punch Khan takes clean, he lies down and collects his pay cheque
