Dave Allen vs David Price officially announced for Dillian Whyte undercard, July 20 in London

Dave Allen will fight David Price in a heavyweight clash on the undercard of Dillian Whyte vs Oscar Rivas.

The bout will take place on July 20 at London’s O2 Arena following Allen’s win over Lucas Browne and Price’s bizarre triumph against Kash Ali.

Dave Allen knocked out Lucas Browne on April 20

“This is the fight that I’ve wanted for years,” said Allen.

“I wanted it three years ago but it probably wasn’t the right fight for me at the time. Now it’s the right time for me and it’s the biggest domestic fight out there.

“There may be other fighters out there that are better than us but I think me and Pricey have two of the biggest fanbases in the UK.

David Price won by bite disqualification against Kash Ali last month

“We’re both really exciting fighters and we can both punch, either of us could end it with one shot. 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.”
