Allen posted on his instagram an hour ago with the following message:
Hello everyone, I hoped I would never have to write this message, never mind at 28 with my last fight being when I was 27 years old but I made the decision a few nights ago with my sister that I would no longer from that moment on be a professional fighter, boxing has given me a life I could never of dreamed of, I had never been out of Doncaster but for school trips till I started boxing and it’s taken me round the world from New York City to working men’s club all around the uk, as well as seeing the world it has taken me from the kid brought up in a council house with yellow doors wearing Umbro to a man who still wears Umbro but owns a few houses and who has given myself a chance to give my future kids a life I could only have dreamed of, on top of and more importantly I have made the greatest friends, some of them being my childhood heroes, the list of thanks would be far to long but I hope everyone knows who they are and know they are appreciated, lastly the reason for me calling it a day is simple, I don’t want to get punched anymore, long gone are the days of the kid from donny who just wants to fight, all I want now is a nice quiet life with a wife and some kids healthy and happy getting nice and fat ??
Allen finishes his professional career with a record of 18-5-2 and has shared the ring with the likes of Luis Ortiz, Dillian Whyte, Tony Yoka, David Price in losing efforts. His career-best moments being a third-round knockout of Lucas Browne, as well as a highlight reel of knockout of Nick Webb in a British Title Eliminator.
