  • Nice win for war horse Chisora, he’ll never be a legit world champ but he’s on helluva gate keeper.

  • didnt see fight because stuck on train but happy for price. Maybe his future is in points wins. pernell whitaker reborn?!

  • Says nothing new about Price, all it tells us is that Allen is at British Heavy weight level, and that’s it.
    Best current Heavyweight Gatekeeper? Chisora.

  • Great for Price’s confidence, hope he gets a bigger fight and better payday. He looked more improved to me, one of the nicest guys in the business.

  • One of the most boring fights ever. If Allen had any kind of power Price would of lost. Allen was the only one trying to fight but he was hurt. They never explained why he didn’t come out again. Price is a joke who has no stamina and uses his size to hold and wear down the opponent. He just holds and forces his opponents to walk into his not frequent enough jabs and on occasion, throw’s a uppercut. At least Allen tried, just absolutely nothing on his punches. Lame fight. Hope Allen is okay.

  • Well, I was correct in my picking of all the winners in tonight’s British trifecta. Except I called a knockout in the Whyte vs Rivas and Price vs Allen fights. I correctly called the knockout for Chisora, but thought it would go into the late rounds. Szpilka needs to have a safe fight back in Poland as a farewell and then hang them up. He’s going to get seriously hurt if he continues on fighting anybody in the top 15.

  • David Allen put on a pathetic performance. He was throwing punches at half speed and only put steam on a few of them. Price used his jab continuously all fight long and kept Allen at bay. I don’t know what happened to Allen. He’s fought a lot better than this in past fights. He never put real pressure on Price so was never able to wear him down. Good victory for Price but I wouldn’t put too much stock on this victory. A better pressure fighter would have worn down Price and stopped him.

  • It’s one of those nights where I felt (up front) the fights could have gone either way. What surprised me with the odds was that Allen was a clear favourite vs Price. I felt that this was always a 50/50 fight.
