Allen vs Browne Live Stream
There’s no dislike involved between the two guys. They’re both looking to get the ‘W’ in a professional way without a whole lot of trash talking in order to take their respective careers to the next level. With former World Boxing Association heavyweight champion Browne (28-1, 24 KOs) being 40-years-old, it’s important that he get the win, as this could be the last hance saloon for him. It’s not as big of a deal for the 26-year-old Allen (16-4-2, 13 KOs) though, as he’s got time to rebuild his career if he loses. Moreover, Allen has heavy hands, he throws a lot of punches, and makes it exciting.
Browne was recently stopped in the sixth round by #1 WBC Dillian Whyte last year in March 2018. Browne has won his last three fights against lower level opposition. Browne’s last win over journeyman Kamil Sokolowski was a controversial six round points decision. It looked like Browne lost the fight, but the referee scored it for him by a 57-56 score. Boxing News 24 had Sokolowski winning the fight by a five rounds to one score. Browne was knocked down by a big left hook from Sokolowski in the second round. Never the less, the fact Browne is struggling with journeymen at this point in his career shows where he’s at. The lack of hand speed for Browne was troubling.
“Even though there’s no animosity in the build-up, I want to punch him all over The O2. I’ve trained harder than ever for this fight and you’ll all see the difference come fight night. I’m going to knock him out,” Allen said. “A win here puts me on the big stage, not the highest level, but within touching distance of a fight that would then put me there.”
