    That doesn’t sound like he will be fighting Gassiev. Little vs Allen perfectly acceptable on undercard.

    He already fought Ortiz and Yoka, two fighters so far above him in class that you could argue borderline criminal malice by Hearn.

    Gassiev is not amazing by any stretch but he would a serious hurt on Allen. Hope it is fake news

    Not sure if this is still the case. He was talking about Gassiev a few days ago.. but as of last night on Twitter implied he was considering retiring and only wants to fight someone less than British level if at all.

    I wish Allen would pack in and we have that massive thread going but seems he'll carry on regardless. As a fight I suppose it's no worse than Usyk being lined up with Joey Dawejko before the injury.

    Gassiev is pretty good but has not boxed for a year, has had shoulder surgery and has been on the fence about which weight class he wants to fight in. Allen and Gassiev are about the same size in height and reach but there's a fair bit more meat on Dave so it could be interesting. Gassiev weighed in for Usyk at a tad under 200 pounds and Dave was just over 240 at the weigh in for Price. That's a chunk of weight.

    I'm guessing people are just ignoring the evidence out there for unsourced gossip then....

    Yeah it’s clearly not Dave Allen judging from Eddie’s tweet.

    However, I wonder if it is in fact David Price?

    Allen literally said today he’d go nowhere near Schwarz or anyone near British level so not a chance this happens, nor should it

    And Yoka was just 4-0 when he boxed Allen, that tells you everything about Allen’s level or lack of

    I agree but I think even Hearn will begin to feel guilty about the beatings Allen is taking.

    Dave Allen is a pub fighter and a pub comedian, he's tough and has a good chin - that's it. Sick of seeing him keep getting the exposure he doesn't warrant. Excuse maker who NEVER lets his hands go in fights..
