British heavyweight contender David Allen (18-5-2, 15 KO) will still perform at Matchroom Boxing on October 31st in the UK.
Recall that initially Allen was supposed to fight German Christian Hammer (25-6-0, 15 KO), but the fight fell through due to a positive test for coronavirus in the latter. The new opponent of the Briton will be 36-year-old American prospect Christopher Lovejoy (19-0-0, 19 KO).
Despite the impressive record, Lovejoy never (!) In his career did not fight with an opponent who had a positive record. Allen hasn’t fought since February, when he knocked out obscure compatriot Dorian Darch (12-12-1) in the 3rd round, closing the defeat to David Price (25-7-0, 20 KO).
