Boxing insiders give their predictions for David Allen vs Lucas Browne
‘White Rhino’ vs ‘Big Daddy’
Former WBA ‘Regular’ world heavyweight champion Lucas Browne (28-1) once again makes the 10,000 mile trip from Sydney to London, this time to face David Allen (16-4-2) at The O2 Arena in Greenwich on Saturday, April 20.
Welsh Area super-lightweight champion
“I’d like to think Dave Allen, pitting so much effort in, being so confident over the past few weeks does the job. But I don’t know if Browne has too much experience for him!”
“David Allen will win via knockout!”
Former English light-heavyweight champion
“I think Dave’s social media persona hides what a good fighter he can be. I personally think he needs a proper full time coach but still feel with a good camp behind like he says he’s had he’ll still have too much for Lucas Browne. I saw Lucas sparring down my gym when he was preparing for Whyte and was very much underwhelmed. If he’s still got the hunger for it then it’ll make for a good fight but Dave is a hard man and think he’ll stop him after half way.”

“I can only see Dave Allen winning this. Lucas Browne isn’t anywhere near his best, he’d looked awful in training camps I’ve seen him in lately, and he was awful vs Whyte, he then got knocked down, and I’d had him losing on points vs Kamil Sokolowski. I don’t think it was possible for him to lose on points because of this fight!
Dave Allen looked like he had a good camp, and looking good. Although Allen is only at a certain level for me, he will win.
I predict a TKO around round 6/8. I am all aboard the Allen train!!”
“I think that’s a tough fight for Allen, he will have to be very focused and move around. If Browne lands one of his heavy hands then Alken will be KO’d.”
“David Allen seems to be taking his boxing more serious lately, and he seems to be fitter than ever before. He’s a funny guy, but frustrating fighter, because he’s got al the attributes to be a fantastic champion. He has good boxing ability, quick reflexes, heavy hands, good head movement, and is tough and as game as they come.
Lucas Browne is 40-years-old now, he can’t match Allen for a lot of his attributes such as speed and movement. However, he has 24 KO’s from 28 wins, so his game plan will be to bully Allen and aim to land one of those heavy hands. Allen is tough as nails and won’t be stopped easily.”
