Heavyweight fringe contender Dave “The White Rhino” Allen 12-3-2 (9) returns to action this Friday night when he takes on an opponent to be named at the Walsall Town Hall in the West Midlands.

The fight will be a support bout to the twelve round British middleweight title fight between WBA #7 and WBO #10 Tommy Langford 20-1 (6) and Jason Welborn 22-6 (7).

Allen, who has built a reputation in the ring with his tremendous battles against Dillian Whyte, Luis Ortiz and Lenroy Thomas, is a likeable figure on social media and says he is looking forward to meeting new fans in Walsall.

“I’m looking forward to it,” he told bcb-promotions.com. “Basically I want to box as much as possible. My manager Mick Marsden knows Errol Johnson (Head of Boxing at BCB) and he said there was a show available.

“Honestly, I had no idea where Walsall was when he told me about it but I’m happy to be taking my small hall tour to the Midlands. You never know if all goes well I might move down here and bring an arena show to Walsall one day!

“I want to get back in the title mix either Commonwealth or British but May 4th is about getting some rounds in and picking up a win.

“Every ticket I’ve been given has sold. A lot of people have asked to meet up the days before to play table tennis and hang out so I’m looking forward to seeing what the town has to offer.”

The main event is a better quality match-up than Allen was first expecting when he agreed to appear on the card.

“To be honest I was expecting a few six rounders and a couple prospects but this is a proper fight,” he said. “Langford is near a world title shot and Welborn’s beaten [Marcus] Morrison so it should be a good scrap.”
