Brandon "Superman" Allen is his own biggest critic.
After scoring a jaw-dropping, first-round stoppage victory over Trevor Loken at BKFC 42 on Friday in Greenville, SC – Allen’s third straight win – he resumed training on Monday.
“I’ve got to keep moving – I need to do better,” says Allen, who’s now finished back-to-back opponents.
“I saw a few things in the fight that I didn’t like, even though I got the win. There are a couple things that I’ve got to clean up, so I’m back in the lab today.
“No days off.”
BKFC’s official rankings are updated every Wednesday. The fast-rising featherweight hopes this week’s report sees him climb from his current designation as the No. 4 contender in BKFC's stacked 145-pound weight class.
Whether or not Allen’s momentum is recognized in the updated rankings remains to be seen, but it’s clear the 33-year-old Tampa, FL fighter is trending upwards.
Allen wants to fight again this summer and be in the mix for the BKFC World Featherweight Championship by the end of 2023.
He also has another big goal.
“I want to be on the next KnuckleMania card,” Allen says with a smile. “That’s the highest-profile event of the year, and I want to be a part of it.”
