The White Rhino faces a tough task against France’s Olympic Gold medallist
Dave ‘The White Rhino’ Allen is a peculiar boxer to say the least.
Doncaster’s 26-year-old heavyweight has had a bizarre career thus far as his growing cult fan base has seen him develop from fighting solely on small hall shows in his hometown, to stadium fights on Sky Sports PPV undercards.
Now, after two unsuccessful Commonwealth title challenges, Allen is going it alone and heading abroad to find his next big fight.
The White Rhino has accepted a bout with France’s 2016 Olympic gold medallist Tony Yoka (4-0), who controversially defeated Joe Joyce in the Rio final.
Allen is a huge underdog in the contest, with some making him a 10/1 outsider against his 1/33 favourite opponent.
The fight will take place at the Palais des Sports in Paris and won’t be broadcast on UK TV.
However, Yoka’s promoter Ringstar Sports regularly stream their cards to international viewers on their website and Dave Allen has confirmed we will be able to watch his fight live on Ringstar.com.
