Popular heavyweight Dave Allen will return to the ring next week as he looks to end the year with a victory.

Allen competes on a Matchroom Boxing show taking place at Wembley Arena on November 21, which will be broadcast live on Sky Sports and DAZN.

It sees Allen (18-5-2, 15 KOs) trying to end the year on a high, following the frustration of his cancelled bout with Chris Lovejoy last month.

The Doncaster boxer is hoping to achieve big things in 2021, as he has targeted a potential British title showdown with Fabio Wardley.

Allen said: “I’ve only had two full rounds in 18 months so I’m hoping to get rounds in the bank and for it to set me up for a big fight next year, hopefully for the British Title against Fabio Wardley.”
