Famous boxing brothers hospitalized with injuries after crash

It only takes one little mishap to cause a serious car accident. It’s scary, but life can change in a split second.

Two well-known sports figures are fighting serious injuries after a car crash late last week. The car accident sent 29-year-old twin brothers Rock and Tiger Allen, famous for their boxing skills, to the hospital for injuries they received during the one-car crash.

According to reports, the brothers were traveling in a Ford Explorer on Bethlehem Pike in Montgomery Township. The car reportedly left the road and hit a tree. Tiger Allen was the driver. Both men were airlifted from the scene by rescue helicopter to different hospitals.

The twins were considered up-and-coming in the world of boxing. Rock Allen boxed at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. His brother, Tiger, tried but failed to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Boxing Team in the 2000 Olympics. Neither has fought in the last couple of years.

According to Philly.com, Rock remains in the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania where he is listed in serious condition. Tiger is in intensive care at Hahnemann University Hospital. There is no word on his condition. There were no further updates on the state of the twins’ health.

Police in Montgomery County have yet to establish a cause for the accident. It was not clear whether alcohol could have been a factor. An investigation is ongoing. It was not reported when or if police would release more details.
