Despite the punishing loss to David Price, there is optimism in the voice of Dave Allen who talks to Declan Taylor in detail about that defeat, its implications and his plans for the future

IT IS now over two months since Dave Allen was left battered, bruised and hospital-bound by David Price at the O2 Arena. Despite suggesting that his career might have ended that night in London, the Conisbrough heavyweight tells Boxing News why he is ready to dedicate two more years of his remarkable life to the sport.

The dust has settled - how do you reflect on the Price defeat?

Every fighter that wins or loses, in their training camp things don’t go right or whatever else. My camp wasn’t perfect and I could sit here and make 1,001 excuses about what went wrong and why I didn’t perform but the top and bottom of it was, I believe David Price was the better man on the night. He came, he turned up the best he’s ever been and he was the better man. I don’t want to make excuses because I’d lost four times before that, this is five, and I’ll probably lose another 10 times. Not bothered.
