Heavyweight Dave Allen (12-3-1, 9 KOs) says his rematch against Lenoy Thomas (22-4, 10 KOs) is NOT confirmed for December 17th on the undercard of Tony Bellew vs. David Haye. Allen prefers a fight against British heavyweight champion Sam Sexton (24-3, 9 KOs) instead.
Allen lost to the 32-year-old Thomas by a 12 round split decision on May 27 in a failed effort to win the vacant Commonwealth heavyweight title. Allen, 25, bounced back from that loss to defeat Tom Dallas by a 4th round knockout on July 22.
Sexton, 33, recently beat Gary Cornish by a 12 round unanimous decision last month to claim the vacant British heavyweight title in Edinburgh, Scotland.
