Dave Allen Worrying Tweets - Account now deleted

Dave runs 10 miles in 60 minutes. That's pretty impressive to me, shows what a natural athlete he is. I only learned this from listening to his podcast with Tris Dixon yesterday.
10 miles per hour, at 6'3'' and 17 stone? Doubt it.

I'm 6'5'', 14 stone and run a 51 minute ten km. Allen might be a "professional athlete", but he simply doesn't have (nor do I) the frame to be clocking that kind of distance at a blistering pace.

Listen to the interview, he said 'could'.

Past tense. He was talking about his track and field school days.

Not now at 17 stone.

Brian cockerill battered glenn mccory in a street fight about 20 year ago on a night out in Newcastle.. Brian has hideous strength and threw glenn around like a rag doll by all accounts. The taxman was one dangerous man on concrete during his heyday.

Andrew Pritchard finally got caught. His bird Amber must be all alone - she was proper fit. Really enjoyed Donal Macintyre's Underworld series thingy.

@raymann Not every heavyweight sized hard case turns pro boxer mate, Lee Duffy was a man mountain and according to the boxing coaches he trained with ‘could have easily turned pro’

If we are talking about someone like Joshua or Fury then yeah fair enough your comment is legit, but Dave Allen is essentially a hard bloke who’s a decent domestic level boxer, I don’t think it’s out of reality to think Lee Duffy or Brian Cockerill could fight him.

We seem to only give credit to people for winning pro fights but there’s plenty of men who’ve had dozens and dozens of street fights who can have it just as good.

Duffy was well known for fighting and beating pretty much every hard case on Teesside and even up to Newcastle in his reign, dozens upon dozens of documented street fights.

Is it beyond the realms of possibility that someone like Duffy who’s the size of a heavyweight himself could beat a domestic level boxer in a fight? Not for me sorry.

People tend to forget the factors involved in a street fight.

If Allen ends up in a clinch in the ring, there's a ref breaking it up.

If Allen ends up in a clinch with a psycho like Duffy or John Fury, he'll find that they'll be chomping on his face or gouging his eyes out.
