Dave Allen comments on ex-opponent Dillian Whyte: ‘It looks dodgy 100%’
Dave Allen shared ten rounds with Dillian Whyte as an undefeated whippersnapper in 2016, losing a unanimous decision in the process.
Since then, Allen has enjoyed contrasting fortunes. Whyte has gone from strength to strength and on the verge of a world title shot.
Three years on from their one-sided meeting and Whyte is the subject of a potential second drug test failure in his career.

World Boxing News was informed of massive developments in the situation regarding Dillian Whyte early on Wednesday. The events have since rocked British Boxing to the core. According to trusted and valued communication, WBN learned of a possible failed drug test by Whyte. It allegedly happened in the run-up to the Londoner’s WBC mandatory bout […]
