NEXT month, two intriguing domestic showdowns will take place up at heavyweight, as Daniel Dubois and Nathan Gorman collide for the vacant British belt on July 13, before Dave Allen takes on David Price a week later. Exciting all-British pairings are not only to be found in the sport’s heaviest division, however.

Down at bantamweight, talk is growing of a potential clash between a couple of unbeaten, highly touted Scots who both hold titles. Lee McGregor is the Commonwealth boss, while Ukashir Farooq reigns as British king. Everyone in the UK would love to see the all-action duo face off in the ring. Everyone except Scott Allan, that is.

This Saturday (June 22), at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Allan aims to render any discussion of a McGregor-Farooq fight redundant when he challenges his fellow Scotsman McGregor for the Commonwealth crown, live on iFL TV (UK) and ESPN+ (US).
