Dave Allen got another stoppage win to continue his fairytale story in the sport.
The Conisbrough heavyweight was set for 10 rounds of action on Saturday night.
Allen, who won an official eliminator for the British title with a stunning fourth-round stoppage over Nick Webb back in July at the O2 Arena in London, took on Germany’s Samir Nebo.
And the visitor felt the power of the likeable man, who calls himself ‘The Doncaster De La Hoya’, exclusively live on Sky Sports, as part of the supporting cast to Lewis Ritson’s clash against Francesco Patera for the vacant European lightweight title at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle.
Allen landed a brutal left hook after just 65 seconds of the opener to send Nebo to the canvas, writhing in pain and unable to continue.
The hope now will be that Allen can remain active towards the back end of the year and potentially fight at least once more pre-Christmas.
