“It’s a great fight and one that I’m really excited to be involved in. This won’t go past four rounds. I’m going to try and outbox him and I’m going to try and take him out with one shot as early as possible.
“I want to beat him in the first two or three rounds while he’s still fresh and at his best. His game plan will be to try and knock me out within the first few rounds so the fans will love it.
“On the back of three victories then Lucas Browne and David Price I believe that I’m ready for a top ten heavyweight and that for me is a final eliminator for a world title fight.”
The former British and Commonwealth champion David Price had nothing but respect for his opponent, after Allen’s run of four successive stoppage wins but believes he could use his size advantage to his favor, when they both meet in the ring.
“Dave is a durable fighter and he’s on a good winning streak,” said Price. “His last fight was a great win so he’ll be coming into this one with his tail up but I’ve won my last two fights as well. It’s going to be explosive. It’s two big punchers and it might be a matter of who lands first.
“Dave is known for his toughness so it won’t be a good idea for me to go out there and try to land a big one early. It’s about me trying to use my attributes to my advantage. It’s two completely different types of fighters and two different sized men. I’m a lot bigger than Dave Allen, that can be a good thing or a bad thing.
“It’s a massive fight. I think me and Dave Allen have been slated to fight a couple of times in the past and it hasn’t happened for whatever reason but this time there’s big upsides for the winner. There’s a hell of a lot on the line which makes for an intriguing fight.”
