Undefeated super middleweight prospect Lennox “2 Sharpe” Allen, a native of Guyana, makes his “new” home debut Saturday night (Aug. 7) at the Aviator Sports Arena in Brooklyn, New York.
Allen (12-0, 7 KOs) is a much traveled, 25-year-old now living in Brooklyn. The aggressive southpaw faces his stiffest test to date, veteran Darnell Boone (17-15-2, 7 KOs), in an 8-round bout on Saturday’s card in Brooklyn, presented by Havoc Boxing Promotions.
Allen is coming off of a sixth-round stoppage of Victor Paz last month. Boone, who has been stopped only once in his career, is somewhat of a super middleweight gatekeeper having extended world champions Andre Ward and Jean Pascal the full distance. In his last bout, Boone upset previously unbeaten Adonis Stevenson (13-0) via a second-round technical knockout.
Allen’s promoter, Boxing 360, has a full weekend of boxing. In addition to having Allen fighting Boone in New York on Saturday night, Boxing 360 heavyweights “Merciless” Mike Mollo and Maurice “Moe Sugar” Harris will be fighting Friday evening, respectively, in Chicago and Hinkley, Minnesota.
Mollo (20-3, 12 KOs) returns home for an 8-round bout against Gary “Pit Bull” Gomez (18-11-1, 7 KOs) at the UIC Pavilion Center. Harris (23-14-2, 10 KOs), winner of the 2002 “Thunderbox Heavyweight Tournament,” takes on IBF #15 rated Nagy “Dominican Dynamite” Aguilera (16-3, 11 KOs) for the vacant USBA title, in Hinkley, Minnesota.
