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.

Very bad idea if Dave comes back, hope his family will protect him from himself. It is always best to retire with a little something left in the tank, not when you're totally shot
I like him, and I would like him to retire.

He's always been a bit of a vulnerable character, and he takes a lot of shots. He must've done better financially than most fighters of his quality. Best to call it a day now.

I don't like him anymore to be honest

Its a game to him I was watching the boxing the other night on the Benn bill. Usually I miss the start of sky shows but not this 1. You had Ben Smith vs Jez Smith the winner stays on sky shows. Ben Smith works at Tesco call centre sparring Callum Smith takes this fight at short notice is very grateful for the opportunity. Those are the guys who should get the backing.

Not Allen who has had countless chances. Harsh but there you go. He has massively overachieved in his career and going from his sparring video he is lucky to leave healthy.

Hobson wont rush that fight.
I reckon he will use Allen to headline small hall shows and Allen will get his team a run out on the undercard...
Agree, Allen v Ali in 2-3 years time. Both will just be milked for easy wins against journeymen for a few years, neither has any real domestic potential anymore.

I guess Allen has run out of money. As long as he doesn't fight any top guys he might be ok otherwise he will be beaten pillar to post.
