Dave Allen faces the biggest night of his career when he takes on former WBA World Champion Lucas Browne on a huge evening of Heavyweight action at The O2 in London.

The fight takes place on April 20, shown live on Sky Sports in the UK and DAZN in the US.

Alongside Allen v Browne will be Finchley bad boy Derek Chisora returning to the ring against Senad Gashi.

‘WAR’ comes in hot from his FOTY contender with Dillian Whyte in December.

‘White Rhino’ Allen is in the form of his life after notching successive stoppage wins over Nick Webb, Samir Nebo and Ariel Esteban Bracamonte in the second half of 2018.

The Doncaster fans’ favourite rich vein of form began with a “life-changing” fourth round knockout win against Webb at The O2 in July.

He hopes to make it four stoppages from four fights at the Greenwich venue next month.

Browne returns to the scene of his sole career loss to Dillian Whyte. ‘Big Daddy’ is determined to redeem himself with a big knockout win over cult hero Allen.

Since that loss, the 28-1 Australian has bounced back with three wins. His career-best victory came against Ruslan Chagaev in 2016

He believes another victory on April 20 will fire his name back into the World mix.

WAR

Former World title challenger Chisora came sensationally close to beating Whyte in December.

Going into the eleventh round of an exhilarating and brutal fight, Chisora was ahead on two of the judges’ scorecards only to be caught by a devastating left hook.

Having recently teamed up with highly-respected trainer Dave Coldwell, Chisora is feeling refreshed. The ex-Vitali Klitschko foe is revitalized. He’s ready to take on any challenges in 2019.


Some of the best up-and-coming talent Britain has to offer get the chance to showcase their skills to the masses once again.

Sunderland’s ‘Pretty Boy’ Josh Kelly takes on the toughest opponent of his career to date in the form of unbeaten 17-0 Pole Przemyslaw Runowski.

Cardiff’s ‘Welsh Wizard’ Joe Cordina picked up the Commonwealth Lightweight crown in his last outing against Sean Dodd. He steps up again on April 20. Cordina takes on Barnsley ‘KO Kid’ Andy Townend for the vacant Lord Lonsdale belt.

Ilford Welterweight Conor Benn makes his long-awaited return to the ring following a hand injury. The ailment has kept him out of action since his first title win over Cedrick Peynaud in July.

‘The Destroyer’ in promising another explosive performance. He’s fully expecting to pick up where he left off.
