Making his way back up the rankings after losing in his grudge match against Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte had his second comeback fight since that dramatic night at the O2 Arena, in London.

Last night, in Leeds, Whyte was matched against the unbeaten, but largely untested, David Allen for the WBC International heavyweight title.

Ahead of the fight Allen had suggested that, in sparring, he?d had the upper-hand against Joshua when the two have sparred; those thoughts led us to believe that we might be in for a turbo-charged heavyweight fight.

But, as it turned out, it was a dull encounter with Allen showing that he can take a punch and has a granite chin, but, attack-wise the unbeaten fighter offered very little going forward and only opened up in the last round, knowing he had to get a knock-out to win.

At the sound of the bell it was Whyte?s arm, as we all knew it would, that was raised with the Brixton fighter taking his professional record to 18-1.

As for Allen, he has time to come again and perhaps taking the Whyte fight at short notice wasn?t the wisest of moves.
