‘The White Rhino’ David Allen is set to face Nick Webb on short notice this weekend. The last minute addition takes place on a stacked fight card at the O2 Arena.
This heavyweight clash replaces Kell Brook vs Brandon Cook. Brook was forced to withdraw due to an ankle injury.
Joe Joyce considered facing Nick Webb but it seems the Hayemaker Ringstar heavyweight elected to wait. Joyce won the commonwealth championship in his last fight and is no doubt waiting out for a big match-up.
This is a good opportunity for Allen. The bout is an eliminator for the British heavyweight title on a star-studded event. David Allen will look to get back on track, after a period of bad luck, on July 28th.
