David Allen (18-5-2)...

  • CHB will be closing down as of 31st July 2021. It's been a brilliant experience to run the website for the past 9 years, however it's time for me to move onto different projects. Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

Strange character our Dave has received more opportunities than most.

Brave + Solid Chin. But zero dedication. Shown no real desire to improve. Some one with more ambition would have put a solid team around them and atleast become a genuine contender. Surely could have atleast achieved the same heights as a Matt Skelton. If nothing else.

True!... Hypothetically speaking how do you think he would have faired had he shown some ambition 4 years ago. Gone over to the States joined one of the Veteran coaches likes of Ronnie Shields, Freddie Roach, Kevin Rooney, Tommy Brooks, Al Mitchell etc. Aside from the nutrition and conditioning learned how to , Bob, Weave, Block, Pivot, Parry role with the punches, how to set traps, how to cut off the ring.? Those skills are learnable if the guy is willing.

Promoter wise he should have moved to Mick Hennesey with Peter Fury and trained alongside Tyson and Hughie riding their coat-tails...
