Dave Allen could fight David Price next month.

The Conisbrough heavyweight, who suffered his maiden career defeat in July, has revealed to Instant Boxing that there has been an offer made for the fight.

Allen (9-1-1, 6 KOs) lost to Dillian Whyte over 10 rounds in a challenge for the vacant WBC International crown at Leeds’ First Direct Arena, live on Sky Sports.

But he looks set to return against the Liverpudlian (20-3, 17 KOs), who is a former British and Commonwealth champion, on October 15 at the ECHO Arena, as part of the undercard to Tony Bellew’s first WBC cruiserweight title defence against colourful Californian BJ Flores.

“I got offered [the fight] today,” the 24-year-old told Instant Boxing on Tuesday. “The offer is for October 15.

“I agreed to the money, so I assume there’s a good chance it will happen.

“I’m just waiting on [promoter Eddie] Hearn to me, I’ve no idea if Price has accepted [the offer for the fight] or not.”

Further details will be revealed in due course.
