THE MAN TO BEAT NAYOA INOUE?

Chisora make claim about Allen's late night antics prior to fight night.

London based heavyweight suggest Allen was in a bar the night before fighting David Price

By Aaron Cooper   - @IntuBoxing

Matchroom Boxing's Eddie Hearn has been quick to pour water over rumours about the ever-popular David Allen. 

Up until Saturday night, Allen was riding the crest of a wave. 'The Doncaster DeLa Hoya' is a popular figure on social media, largely in part to his down to earth nature and rags to riches story. Following a tenth round stoppage loss at the hands of Olympic Champion, Tony Yoka last year. Allen began to take his boxing more seriously. Reeling off four successive knockout victories, including one over former World Heavyweight Champion, Lucas Browne. However, that all came crashing down around him after he was outgunned, outfought and outclassed by former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion, David Price under the lights at London's O2 Arena on Saturday night. 

Allen was pulled out of the bout in the tenth round, and was taken to hospital shortly afterwards after receiving medical attention post-fight.

However, since then rumours have come to light that Allen was in a London bar until 2.30am the morning of the fight. These rumours have been substanciated by fellow heavyweight, Dereck Chisora, who got his own career back on track after a producing a highlight reel knockout over Artur Spilzka in just two rounds. 

"From what I'm hearing he was in the bar [Friday] until two thirty in the morning," Chisora told the YouTube channel iFL TV in the locker room after his win.

When confronted by these rumors at today's press conference for the showdown between Vasyl Lomachenko and Luke Campbell. Hearn had this to say.

"No, I don't, and that would certainly shock me," he told us on Monday. "But Dave Allen is a little bit of a strange character. He doesn't drink … at all. He doesn't touch alcohol, so he wouldn't have been out drinking. Maybe he couldn't sleep and he was socializing, I don't know."

Adam Smith, the head of boxing at Sky Sports, said he knew "nothing at all" about Allen's apparent pub visit. "David Allen, as far as I knew, had trained extremely hard for the fight. Darren Barker is a good friend of mine and Darren had him in great shape,"

Hearn said: "Dave Allen is an enigma in himself. You just don't know what you're going to get from him. I wouldn't say he's mentally unstable but he's unorthodox. Mentally unorthodox in boxing."

"He said a few discouraging things after the fight, talking about his health and stuff. The most important thing is that he's happy and healthy, and boxing comes third after those two."

Regardless of whether there is any truth to these rumours, IntuBoxing.com wishes Dave Allen the very best.
