    Clearly it’s because he wants an easier life? Does Dave Allen strike you as a guy who will bust his arse on a treadmill for an hour and eat properly afterwards? No, quite clearly he’s the kind of guy who will have a hard spar followed by a Burger King washed down with some coke. Rinse repeat.

    And who can blame him? Because even though he does this repeatedly after promising people he is going to train properly after his next fight, he still somehow has hordes of supporters online who for some insane reason pay to watch him.

    If Allen hasn't been bothered to train by now, I doubt it'll happen at all.

    He's good at selling himself, although it's usually really basic low grade humour that is quite funny at first but soon gets old. He's perfect for the A League Of Their Own humour kind of people, they'll eat that up, sprinkle in some "I'm Northern, I'm working class, I'm humble, I love my mum..." etc. etc. quotes and you've got yourself a man who can appeal to the masses. It is quite bizarre, given his attitude to the sport and his record, how popular he has become, he says that he'll fight anyone but I think it's hard to say that he actually fought any of the opponents he has lost to, barring Thomas. He was just a punchbag for a returning from injury Whyte, Ortiz and Yoka. He'll fight anyone, providing they're Dave Howe, Tom Dallas or unknown foreigners. That said, I'd like to see him knuckle down and do well and see how far he can really go, I just think he's a bit too immature for the sport.

    I’m not sure Browne comes through this?!

    Dave Allen wings his career on his natural abilities... and ridiculously tough chin... and ballz heavier than your head.

    I keep watching that Ortiz fight back and my god, that man can take a punch. Ortiz is intimidating as ****, he knocks 50 per cent of Allens brains cells out... but Allen had success at times so it shows how far his chin and power can take him... if only he put in more practise...

    He will never practise more though... he gets the odd fight, collects the cheque ... goes a buys something for his new house etc.
