Can David Allen Beat Tony Yoka?

Martin Mullender breaks down this weekend's heavyweight highlight!

By Martin Mullender   - @intuboxing

This coming weekend at the Palais des Sports de la porte de Versailles in Paris see's Rio Olympic gold medalist, Tony Yoka square off against the ever popular british heavyweight, David 'The White Rhino' Allen.

Yoka, who is being billed as the French AJ' fights in his fourth professional bout. His pro-career thus far has seen him win four out of four, three of which have ended in a knockout., The world hasn’t seen much of Tony Yoka yet - however he certainly has the potential to be a force in the heavyweight division, If sparring is anything to go by then Yoka is certainly making the right noises as recently he was sparring former heavyweight champion, Joseph Parker, ahead of his unification title fight with Anthony Joshua earlier this year. Yoka also has the right backing with an agreement in place with Richard Schaefer and David Haye, so the more wins Yoka notches up the better the opponent to come and with Yoka already selling out venues there is real excitement in the 26-year-old Frenchman,

With Yoka's tall stature and long reach very few are giving Dave Allen a snowball's chance in hell of coming back to the UK victorious, however, Allen knows Yoka can be hurt. This was evidenced in his amateur bout against Erislandy Savón - Yoka can be hurt but does Allen believe he can be the second man to hurt Yoka and the first one to do it in the pro ranks?

The question is which Dave Allen turns up? Is it the one who has no real aspirations of winning? Or is it the Allen that Eddie Hearn believes can be a threat in the heavyweight division? Will we see Allen win his fourteenth professional fight and claim his eight stoppage?

This has the potential to be a really exciting fight. But, it also has the potential to be another one sided defeat for Allen which mirrors the fights against Luis Ortiz and Dillian Whyte. Many believe for Allen to win he must start fast and sharp and unsettle Yoka from is stride. He needs to work on the inside and stay away from that long stiff jab Yoka employs so well, - if that's not the case and Yoka starts pumping out his jab and backhand, then it could be an early finish. As Cyril Léonet found out in Yoka's previous fight he can packs power.

All will be revealed Saturday night. Does Yoka show the world he is a force to be reckoned with? Or does Allen upset the odds and introduce himself to the heavyweight division?

Only time will tell.
