Fan favourite Dave Allen’s dream of becoming Commonwealth heavyweight champion was halted in the very 1st round against Jamaican Lenroy Thomas as an accidental clash of heads resulted in a horrible cut above the eye of Allen, forcing the referee and ringside doctor to call the fight off.

The fight was officially announced as a technical draw by the master of ceremony, it was heartbreak for both fighters who had both clearly trained extremely hard for the bout, both coming into the contest in excellent shape.

In the post-fight interviews with the fighters and promoter Eddie Hearn, it was clear that all involved want to make the fight again so it looks like Allen Vs Thomas III will happen.
