    Poor Dave, couldn't even beat the Ghost of David Price and thinks he could share a ring with an all time great. Any age Mike Tyson knocks this clown out

    If Kevin Mcbride 15 years ago beat the living **** out of him, then I do think Dave Allen in 2020 could do him

    Mike Tyson hasnt aged well

    Tyson would not even dent Allen's mandible. Are we forgetting Allen has one of the best chins in HW boxing, he's never been wobbled.

    Bro I’d back Allen too.

    Tyson is done. He was a shell last time he fought. People see a few clips of explosive speed but almost any heavyweight in the world can look impressive in a short compilation training highlight reel.

    People are forgetting that Tyson is 5’10” probably even shorter now with age.

    Tyson would have a chance against Allen any every C-grade Heavyweight in the first thirty seconds. He’s then start blowing and he would not be able to take body punches in particular at his age.

    Allen would easily beat Tyson , Tyson would be gone after two rounds tops !!! He is an old man who had been taking/smoking drugs non stop for over ten years !!!!!

    I'd back current Gavin Rees over Dave Allen.

    Iron Mike should fight nobody under the age of 50 should he really have to fight again.

    A young pudding such as Allen surely defeats a shot old man and it would be awful to watch.

    The real danger is Tyson starts making serious noises about a comeback then Barry Hearns and son start priming the sky sports season ticket holding brain trust that this guy has still got it, before you know it he'll be lined up as an AJ opponent:

    Shot: CHECK
    Fat: CHECK
    Old: CHECK
    Midget: CHECK

    Ticks all the boxes and has that all important name value for the red button boys, who knows. Another big name alongside the shot old retired ghost of VLAD for the joshua cv? never say never in boxing.

    Totally agree mate. Some people acting like Dave Allen is trying to big himself up, when in reality its the oppposite. He knows a prime Tyson was 100x better than he will ever be, so for him to be worse than someone like him now, proves a comeback is a bad idea.

    Do people honestly believe someone that was in their prime in the 1980s is going to be a force 4 decades later ?
