David Price needs to finish Allen off asap
David Price (24-6, 19 KOs), had inconsistent results lately which is no surprise. He won two fights against Kash Ali and Tom Little. Yet, before that he lost twice in a row to Sergey Kuzmin and Alexander Povetkin. At the age of 36, Price is on the horizon of retirement. Therefore, a win over his English rival would probably be his last chance to work himself into one final title run.
Following ten years of pro career, Price knows very well his weaknesses including the issue of his stamina. Therefore, his best plan would be trying to finish Allen off in early rounds. To do so he will certainly use his height and reach advantage with a great jab and punching technique. Price could catch Allen on his way while boxing from a distance to put Allen down. On paper such game plan can be a success story, with 15/8 odds at Bet365 Sportsbook.
David Allen a lot hungrier than Price
David “White Rhino” Allen (17-4-2, 14 KOs), had a very busy last year. He fought six times in 2018, enduring a draw and a loss, but also enjoying four stunning wins. Allen knocked out Samir Nebo, Nick Webb, and David Howe, and stopped Ariel Bracamonte. The impressive journey continued in April with a KO over the former WBA World Champion Lucas Browne. Adding David Price to the list, is nothing more than Allen using the momentum and timing to build up for a world title shot.
Online sportsbooks in the UK consider Allen, 27, a lot hungrier than his opponent. Allen is also the smaller fighter but fearless as well. Should Allen move his feet and avoid Price’s long range punches, he can cause serious damage by getting inside of Price. The best David Price vs David Allen winner odds value Allen at 2/5 to get the job done. Allen’s plan is not only on paper, he tried it against a bigger man Nick Webb and was able to knock him out in a stunning way. It will all come down to whose game plan will succeed. We think with the experience Price has, he might achieve more in the ring.
