Boxing News at Five: White Rhino wants Big Daddy, Johnson eyes Beterbiev rematch, Off The Canvas podcast launches ahead of World Mental Health Day

Dave Allen is banging the drum for a Lucas Browne clash, Callum Johnson would one day like another crack at Artur Beterbiev, and Off The Gloves podcast launches
Dave Allen

FRESH from an eye-catching fourth round knockout of Nick Webb in July, popular British heavyweight Dave Allen is on the hunt for a high-profile, meaningful fight.

His next one, booked for Saturday (October 13) in Newcastle, is about as far removed from that as you can get, but he hopes, should he beat the unheralded German Samir Nebo, there will be better options ahead.

Ideally, Allen says, a December date against Lucas Browne, a former WBA heavyweight champion, would be next on the agenda.
