    World Champion Billy Joe Saunders has leaped to the defence of heavyweight Dave Allen after fans took claimed a fix took place in his recent fight.

    Allen stopped Dorian Darch in three rounds after going through the motions for the previous two.

    ‘The White Rhino’ exploded into life and accusations of something untoward then hit social media.

    Comments included: “Fix in on the Dave Allen fight? Looks like someone’s very keen to back him winning in round 3 on Betfair, looks like some backing with the bookies too.


    3 mins before the first bell Allen in the 3rd was suspended on sky bet – fix?

    Was a blatant fix, first 2 rounds were embarrassing then straight away in 3rd Allen gets aggressive and Darch says “go on” and falls to the canvas off a slap to the body, then there’s this.

    So let me get this straight there was a steam move on RD3 Allen and the first two rounds Allen was pulling his punches and then as soon as the third round started he turned it up and won by KO easily one of the worst fix jobs I have ever seen in my life.

    Upon seeing the tweets aims towards Allen and Darch, Saunders denied the ‘Doncaster De La Hoya’ would attempt such a move.


    “Reading Dave Allen fight was fixed. Please stop talking s***,” said the two-weight world title-holder. “People always trying to bring people down in this world.

    “He won his fight fair and square against a game opponent who took some big shots and is limited. Why would he do this at that stage when he’s been in a bigger fight?”



    TITLE FIGHT
    With his recent victory, Allen is back in domestic championship contention after taking a beating against David Price.

    The 27-year-old had been advised to rethink his career after the O2 Arena bruiser. Allen decided to return and lower his targets.

    A crack at the Lonsdale Belt is now possible. Only once Daniel Dubois or Joe Joyce vacate later in the year.

    The fight thread on here had similar comments - looked very dodgy

    People love a conspiracy theory. They said the same about the Alvarez/Kovalev fight.

    It was strange, he didn't seem to be in any rush the first 2. He was punching in a weird way, with a straight arm. Then in the 3rd he did burst into life. The face that betting on a 3rd round win for Allen was suspended prior to the fight starting adds more smoke. But who knows, until there is solid evidence then we shouldn't hang him!

    He was messing about in the first 2, show-boating. Seems he could have taken Darch out in less than 1 minute had he put it on him in Round 1. Dave doesn't need to fix a Darch fight, but who knows the truth.

    That fight was dodgy looking though, even pro boxers commented on it.

    Wonder if Naz also recouped his losses on Eubanks Jnr v Groves?

    Can remember saying Haye saying something similar when he fought Audley Harrison- the investigation into that went nowhere.

    It’ll be interesting to see if Sky upload this fight to their YouTube channel quickly- if they don’t then something might be going on.

    Think darch is taking unnecessary stick....he definetely wobbled after a decent shot to the chin just prior to being knocked over. Looked legit to me.

    Maybe dave allen did have money on the 3rd round...i dont think darch has been involved in that tho.

    Everyone knows a hit on the chin can have that sort of reaction.
