‘There is no doubt in anybody’s mind that Allen is the best featherweight in all of Africa. However, like any professional athlete that strives for greatness, Allen just wants to continue getting better. Being seen as the best of the best doesn’t change a thing.

“I feel honoured,” Allen admitted to Combat Press. “And I know that I need to keep improving as an athlete day in and day out. I haven’t stopped training and I’m constantly trying to add tools to my game and better the basics.”’

EFC 38: Allen vs. Hawkey II is presented by BetXchange.com, and takes place at Durban International Convention Centre, Durban, on Saturday 4 April 2015. Tickets on sale now at www.computicket.com.
