    i realy don't think he has special needs, he's actually fairly intelligent. he used to be a supply teacher as well. he's just a bit touched

    Eddie said on his IFL interview yesterday that Dave accepted the first offer he gave him and that he knew he should have started lower as Dave would have probably accepted that too.

    doesn't anyone watch his videos, no other people would accept these fights at short notice so he's not been given any special opportunities ?

    How can you be so small minded? ‘Using and abusing’

    You realise Allen has said he’s absolutely loving it down there this week? You realise it’s entirely his choice to be there? Hearn isn’t forcing him there. He’s doing what he loves to do, yeah from out POV it looks a bit silly what he’s doing, but you could say that about most people, it’s his life, let him live it and stop hating.

    And it is a fortune if you compare it to them 3, harder, fights.

    Is Allen worth a score at 4/1 u reckon? Can't really say if Webb has got decent power or chin because he hasn't fought anyone of note. I'm tempted...

    Can't say I'm exactly excited for his fight, mind you I'm not even sure I'll get the PPV on Saturday, Del boy might be entertaining, otherwise it's a pretty weak undercard.

    he should train at 60-70% year round so that he can be in decent shape on short notice.

    average joes who work 9-5 can train year round 3+ days a week so I don't know what his excuse is.

    Nick Webb has fought four people with a winning record.

    Combined record of opponents is 109 - 193 - 15.

    By contrast, Allen's opponents stand at a combined 234 - 179 - 12. He's fought 13 people with a winning record, including Yoka, Whyte and Ortiz. In fact the last fighter Allen faced who had a losing record was Rusiewicz, 7 fights ago.

    Why the overwhelming support for Webb in this one?

    Webb has a relatively decent amateur background, ought to be in better shape than Allen...wouldn’t take the fight if he wasn’t confident...

    Well you haven’t looked very hard. And I predicted Fielding 5th round KO when everyone predicted he would lose. So unlucky.

    Because Allen is openly unfit and unmotivated.

    Webb could be chinny though.
