Undefeated super-middleweight prospect, Lennox Allen (15-0-1, 9 KOs) returns to the ring on July 14, 2012, and faces rugged veteran, Michael Walker (19-14-3, 12 KOs) in a 6-round bout at Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Having captured the vacant WBC Caribbean Boxing Federation (CABOFE) super middleweight title against Kwesi Jones (9-2, 5 KOs) in his last bout, Allan will look to shake off the ring rust as it’s been over a year since he’s last fought.
“I’m eager to get back in the ring and march toward title contention after being out of the ring for so long,” said Lennox. “Michael Walker brings a lot of experience to the ring and he’s fought some very good fighters. This will be a good challenge for me and I’ve trained very hard to be successful in this fight. It’s been a long layoff but I’m confident in my ability to come out on top. I’m ready to perform at a high level.”
“I want to thank my promoter Mario Yagobi and Boxing 360 for staying by my side when I was out. I’m hoping I can fight a few more times by the end of this year and get back on track. My goal of becoming a world champion is attainable and I’m going to work very hard to achieve that goal!
“Lennox is a good fighter with a lot of talent but he’s had a few bumps in his career,” said Yagobi. “I’m looking to keep him busy and get him in a big fight very soon. I want him to fight a couple of more times so he can get accustomed to fighting on a regular basis. He’ll be ready to fight for a regional title by early next year.”
