Dave Allen landed a vicious body shot to knock out Lucas Browne in London.

Dave Allen and Lucas Browne were friendly before the fight, and they’re friendly after the fight. But they promised to throw with bad intentions once the fight was on.

Allen and Browne were pretty quiet in the first couple of rounds, with the 40-year-old Aussie Browne, a former secondary heavyweight titleholder, looking like perhaps he’d nicked the first two frames.

But Allen drilled Browne with a left hook to the body in the third round, and Browne went down, a pained grimace across his face. It was a perfect shot, and Browne just couldn’t beat the count, giving Allen the knockout win, the biggest of his career.

Allen (17-4-2, 14 KO) has long been well-liked and popular, but he now says he’s taking his career more seriously. In a main event at the O2, he got the sort of win that has eluded him thus far in his career.

just announced Dillian Whyte vs Oscar Rivas fight.

“It’s a big night for Dave Allen,” Hearn said. “David Price, Dereck Chisora, I think they’re great fights for the Dillian Whyte undercard in July.”
