The ‘White Rhino’ has amassed a huge fan base thanks to his endearing personality
Dave Allen stopped Samir Nebo inside a round to maintain his winning form on Saturday night in Newcastle.
With Toon legend Alan Shearer in attendance, the British heavyweight contender celebrated his victory by borrowing the former footballer’s celebration, running and lifting one arm in the air.
The hugely popular Allen has developed an impressive following largely due to his very likeable personality and comedic acts.
He has previously taken fights in which he was very overmatched and ended up getting well beaten, but is now attempting to get his career back on track after securing an upset knockout win over Nick Webb in July.
It seems the vast majority of boxing fans are rooting for the Doncaster man to succeed, as there was a large outpouring of love for him following his latest victory.
