Allen started his professional career with a six round points win over Rolandas Cesna in 2012.

He fought Lenroy Thomas in May 2017 for the vacant Commonwealth heavyweight title, losing on a split decision over 12 rounds. The rematch in March 2018 was declared a technical draw after Allen suffered a bad cut over the right eye in the first round. The biggest win of Allen’s career came in a third round knockout of former world champion Lucas Browne in April 2019. Allen took on David Price in July 2019, retiring in the 10th round.
