That's
Yall faggots still debating Dave fucking Allen? It's over. The conman run is over. Move on.
That's part of the reason he keeps getting chances, online traffic. Matchroom, like most companies, will monitor the Internet and social media.

Fighters with high profiles who drive interest are free advertising, they are more likely to encourage views and buys and thus worth more money.

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.
Delboy has fought to a high level hence the opportunities. Yarde has been criticised a hell of a lot for his quality of opposition and let’s face it, Warren knows how to manoeuvre his fighters up the WBO rankings. As for Allen, loss after loss, shit performance after shit performance here he was on the verge of getting a fight vs Povetkin. On second thoughts, I would have enjoyed that for obvious reasons.

Listened to Tris Dixon’s podcast with Richard towers be he’d said he’d sparred countless rounds with Allen and he didn’t even have a gun shield in, would constantly block punches with his face and said he just likes getting punched. Brendon ingle has said he’d end up blowing bubbles and could well be a possibility if he continues with these high level matchups.

I’d be fine with him being a fan favourite ticket seller in low level fights but he can’t continue to be matched against the likes of Yoka, Ortiz etc. Keep him as a novelty act in 4 rounders an entertainer per-se. Perhaps once the current crop of British heavies such as Gorman, Dubois maybe even Wardley have passed through British title level, just stick around there and get a Lonsdale belt for keeps.

Bollocks mate. Allen has been heavily active on social media and made himself popular some fans. We got Jeff Thomas onto Prizefighter by lots of posters tweeting about it, and his popularity with people got him noticed and then signed up. He's mixed race.

Allen lost to Ortiz after losing on points to Whyte. He then won a couple and lost a close one to Thomas. He got to the position to fight Price because he beat Webb and Brown. His openness about mental health and how approachable he is are what endeared him to some fans. The idea that he has been given special treatment due to being white is fucking asinine.

Whatever he's being paid, it's not enough. He's going to end up a shaking mess later in life.

Hearn has to take some responsibility for that.

If it's not Hearn, some other promoter will put Allen on shows. The people who deserve the blame are the trainers, manager and friends around dave who maybe arent being completely honest. His speech is getting worse and it does not take a sound test to work that out, I think he should retire with his health intact

After the Price loss, wasn't Allen complaining about headaches and not being well for 18 months? Not exactly signs he should be ignoring...

I was just trying to help him here. He won't listen, sad how this could end up. Numerous others have tweeted him in a bid to get him to stop. Pretty poor how a bunch of casuals abuse anyone with a sense on this, "let the man do what the hell he wants" etc, every single one of them are going to be complicit in him getting hurt if it carries on. sad.
