Promoter wise he should have moved to Mick Hennesey with Peter Fury and trained alongside Tyson and Hughie riding their coat-tails...
Leave the lead promoter in the country and go
With Hennesy the promoter who is not a very good at promoting..?

Why would he need to ride of the coat tails of the Furys when has a good fanbase of his own. His fanbase bigger then Hughies.

I was asking if he could have improved his skill set. Or made additions to his style. Peter Fury as a coach? Yes if he was a jab and run merchant Peter Fury might have been perfect He needs a proven elite coach to make him better with the tools he has.

his first fight for Eddie was October 2015.
Instead I would have gone with Hennesey and Warren earlier and fought on Channel 5 and and Tysons Boxnation undercards whilst improving my skills with Peter Fury.
Allens fanbase with Henneseys terrestrial tv would have grown and Warren would have steered Allen down the correct route rather than rushing him in with Whyte and Ortiz...

Lovejoy's 19-0 record with 19 KOs look fabulous on paper but amounts to almost pure deception when you look at who he has fought.


Common denominator - fat, old Mexican's with losing records.

Decent thread this. King is the promoter who doesn't promote. Who the fuck would have signed with King at any point in the last decade?

The White Rhino now wants to fight the Savage Babic and made contact with Hearn.

Eddie not having any of it not on my watch

Then says we will see what happens in 2021
Eddie had said Allen was buzzed sparring Usyk, and phoned Eddie up because he was worried. (Good of Hearn to disclose this private, and possibly upsetting information on YouTube).

He then went on to say that the only reason Allen would be back was if he needed the money and Eddie wouldn't have anything to do with it.

This was all in a recent IFL interview.

I knew it was shite when he was saying it, and Hearn must have as well. Not sure why he bothered really.
