David Allen demonstrated his multilingual prowess in a press conference with Samir Nebo, but some of his opponent’s words were lost in translation.

Allen offered his services as a translator for Nebo, although he appeared to be making up the humorous answers in front of the watching media.
The Doncaster man hopes victory over Nebo will lead to a big-name bout against Lucas Browne, or a British heavyweight title fight in 2019.
“It’s a building block towards a big fight hopefully towards the end of the year,” said Allen.
“I fully anticipate knocking out Samir Nebo inside four rounds.”
