There's nothing wrong with backing yourself to win, even picking the round. It's only a fix if you collude with your opponent to take a dive.

So if he backed himself to knock Darch out in the third and did it fairly then I don't see what the issue is.
Not sure what the rules are in the UK. But in Australia, if you are connected to a bet on an event you are participating in you are likely to be suspended and fined. It happens occasionally in Australian Rules football and the penalties are harsh.

Porky really does like selling out his old mates, its why I hope he is enemies with Hobson again :yep
I don't think Porky and Dave have fell out, I just think Dave avoids being on camera with Porky due to him constantly calling Hearn out.
In fairness Porky is pretty spot on in his evaluation of the Allen/Dubois/Barker/Hearn situation.
Allen should have gone against Hearns advice, ditched Barker (and his 10%) and taken the money (£250k) on offer for Dubois...

He only said a few months he wanted to rebuild until end of year with learning fights in 6/8 rounders.

No he wants the biggest fight possible :yep

Allen should fight Tom Little this year. What over winnable domestic fight is out there?

No one will have any interest in him fighting some unknown import and one more ridiculous step up could see him seriously hurt.

Was a fun ride but I think his 15 minutes are up now. Probably get milked by Eddie for another few fights before being tossed aside like a used tissue. He can think what he likes but he has definitely suffered irreparable damage to his brain taking ridiculously over matched fights whilst being ill prepared. If he carries on like this for another year, he will be impossible to understand. Nice bloke but is a bit deluded about his skill level.

Really hope Allen get's what he wants from the game.
While i wish every boxer well, Dave Allen really does gring my gears

Hes been given opportunities the majority of domestic fighters (more talented and hard working) would kill for. Yet allen continues to not take it seriously and comes in completely ill prepared. Its a total utter disrespect to the sport and privileged position hes been gifted

He needs to be put in with fighters on his level and get paid accordingly. Not only has his career been an utter piss take, its also extremely dangerous for his health.
