MTK Global catch a ‘White Rhino’

Doncaster’s ‘White Rhino’ (18-5, 15 KOs) was last seen knocking out Dorian Darch having previously recorded a famous stoppage of former world champion Lucas Browne when headlining The O2.

With the domestic scene buzzing, especially at heavyweight, Conisbrough's Allen is eager to get started with his new team, especially having returned to the ring successfully following his loss to David Price last year, on the undercard of Kell Brook vs Mark DeLuca, when he floored Dorian Darch twice to win inside three rounds to get back to winning ways.

Dave Allen said: “I have friends signed with MTK Global and I’ve heard nothing but great things about how professional they are. For the last few years, I’ve been doing everything myself and I thought it was time to bring in professional help.

“I just want to be in the biggest fights possible. I could argue my career has been perfect so far, minus the money and titles, so for the next few years it’s about setting myself up for life financially and hopefully picking up a belt or two.

“Saying that, I wouldn’t swap all the love and support I’ve had for all the money and titles in the world. I never dreamed people would sing my name at arenas all around the country even three years ago nevermind when I turned professional.

“I hope to have some more great nights like that and provide people with some more entertainment.”

MTK Global Vice-President Jamie Conlan said: "This a big signing for MTK Global and we are looking forward to working with one of the UK's highest-profile heavyweights in Dave.

"We believe there is so much more for Dave to achieve. With our guidance, he can focus fully on pushing himself into becoming the very best 'White Rhino' he can be and winning titles sooner rather than later."

Previously, Allen claimed to be on the hunt for the British heavyweight title, currently in the possession of Daniel Dubois, “Let’s get the British heavyweight title won and everything else will be a bonus from there.”

News of the 28-year-old's first assignment as an MTK Global fighter will be forthcoming in due course.
