David Allen looks in tremendous shape for what should be the Doncaster man’s toughest test against Lucas Browne on Saturday night.
‘Papi Pay-Per-View’ is down a whole two stone (28lbs) from almost a year ago. Allen weighed 272 pounds for his four-round win over David Howe at Walsall Town Hall in April 2018.
Since then, and following a one-sided defeat to Tony Yoka, Allen has put his career first.
Victories over Nick Webb, Samir Nebo and Ariel Bracamonte led Allen to a massive opportunity to mix it with the big boys.
As a result, Allen has knuckled down and dropped a further stone to scale 244 pounds for the Browne clash.
Aussie Browne, for his part, came in at four pounds heavier than Allen. ‘Big Daddy’ weighed 248 pounds. A far cry from his heavy loss to Dillian Whyte in March 2018.
