I don’t mind him carrying on but I don’t want to see him overmatched.

That’s 4 proper beatings he’s took off of Ortiz, Yoka, Price & Whyte.

Get him in fights against your Nick Webb types as decent scraps on undercards & I’d be happy for him to carry on

You insulted him a little bit.

Round and about
He should hang em up and Eddie find him a role so he can stay in the game for the sake of his own sanity, even if it's wandering around the venue with a tray round his neck selling ice creams. Which he'd be very good at as the fans love him. He'd still sell more tickets than a lot of fighters even as a Baskin-Robbins rep.

He'd probably want 30 grand a shift though. These modern fighters are as entitled as hell. :lol:

Voted fan. Wouldn't pay to watch him, don't have twitter to follow him, but I think he is a nice guy who just has some issues.

Would like to see him hang them up. Have heard him say he needs the money, but I think it is more than that. Boxing can be addictive, as can fame and money, particularly if you have had self - esteem problems.

If he does continue he needs to be matched carefully and limit his sparring. Nothing we can do though really, it's up to him and the people close to him to fix.

Can't be fuckd with him. Hes had so many undeserved chances and he can't even be bothered applying himself and training properly. It's time this sideshow ends

Boxing is, and always was, as much a popularity contest as a meritocracy. I don't blame Allen for exploiting that.

It is annoying that good spots on big cards have been wasted on a lower level talent, but most of us would take a pay rise and a promotion even if we know there are better candidates out there.

The lack of effort and application is annoying and dangerous, but I think that is down to personal issues rather than being a bad guy.

The opportunities and excuses people make for him. No one British boxing history would have been let off the amount of times he has been. A nothing fighter who robs hardworking fighters of opportunities. If he does fight again hope he gets battered and fucks off for good.
Nothing to do with race or privledge. It's to do with popularity.

Khan and Bruno are obvs higher level but both got more shots and exposure than their talent alone deserved. If you put bums on seats and money in pockets you will always get a good slots on cards/tv

Your quite literally the biggest moron to post on a boxing forum.

Allen's oppurtunities are nothing to do with his race you fucking moron, more to do with his sob story and the fact that he has garnered interest in his career through vocal social media presence.

Does Dereck Chisora have black privilege then? He keeps getting chances despite dog shit displays against Hashi, Pulev, Kayabel? What about Connor Benn who had zero amateur credentials but has been built on the sky platform? Anthony Yarde? Was it his black privilege that garnered him the softest route to a world title?

You see how ridiculous your sjw soyboy claims are.
