Gallen to win by KO is $1.70, that is stealing money.
Does anyone know who the poor old 'Spam in a Can' is that Hodges is 'fighting'?
Guessing he might resemble this guy...
Dunno. He looked fit but obviously wasn’t worth shit, Hodges swarmed him and stopped him in about a minute without actually looking that impressive, looked like he missed as many shots as he landed.
We probably need a “footy players who think they can box” discussion thread, there’s enough there. I reckon Hodges vs Vatuvei could be next up, I’d put the house on Manu personally. He beat a guy who wasn’t a total tomato can and that uppercut was deadly:
Hoppa looked fat and old. Well done Gal
That was a complete embarrassment to australian sporr
He was a feather-fisted gumby. Perfect first opponent really. Hodges even said after the fights that he got caught .. but it obviously didn't hurt him.
I like the way Hodges stood over the guy every time he floored him. All class.
Gal’s next opponent confirmed
From a pure marketing point of view a Gal vs SBW / Hodges vs Vatuvei, NZ vs Aus double bill would put bums on seats. Question is probably whether SBW is interested.
Gallen should fight Mundine. I would be as big as Green / Mundine.
Never gonna happen. Gallen is a heavyweight, fighting at around 100kg. Mundine fights at super middleweight at under 76kg. He’s not going to Go up three divisions to fight Gal in his own class, and Gal isn’t going to drop the 10kg he’d need just to drop down one division to cruiserweight.
Boxing really does need to introduce a weight limited heavyweight class though, it’s pretty tough for boxers in the 90-100kg range to compete with some of the behemoths put there these days.
Nahh... that’s what makes the Heavyweight division special... it’s the only open weight division.
That’s why they call the HW champ the baddest man on the planet...
Adding a limit to the HW division or adding a super heavyweight division just takes away the shine from the division.
I reckon Mundine is a light heavy at natural, he's emaciated at the weight he fights at now. Gallen could go down to light heavy or they could find a catch weight. I think Gal could beat him!
I think you'd need to keep the open division as "heavyweight" as the name has all the history but just add another division for fighters below about 100kg.
