Australian heavyweight champion Justis Huni (4-0, 3 KOs) takes on Rugby League legend Paul Gallen (11-0-1, 6 KOs) on Wednesday at the ICC Exhibition Centre, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, televised on Foxtel Main Event on Pay Per View.

“Just walking through the city and stuff and people are yelling out of their cars,” Huni tells foxsports.com.au from Boxing Works Gym at Kings Cross on Darlinghurst Street, Sydney. “Everybody just wants me to knock Paul out. Not even just beat Paul, but knock him out. I don’t know if they want to see me do well or they genuinely just don’t like Paul Gallen.”

Meanwhile, Gallen says Huni is shirking his promotional responsibilities. “He didn’t turn up, I was very disappointed in that,” Gallen told 2GB’s Wide World of Sports radio. “I thought it was a great opportunity. Let me tell you, the media all day yesterday were bored…it would’ve been an outstanding opportunity to promote the fight.” Continue reading “Huni-Gallen set for Wednesday collision”

IBF junior welterweight mandator challenger Jeremias Ponce (28-0, 18 KOs) spoke about his tenth round knockout over Lewis Ritson on Saturday night in Newcastle, England. Ritson’s corner actually threw the towel in round ten and referee Steve Gray tossed the towel out and allowed Ritson to be battered to the canvas two more times.

“It was a bit confusing when we were in the ring because I thought the fight was over as soon as I saw the towel come in,” said Ponce. “Then I saw the ref throw it out – to be honest it was a bit of a shock. [Ritson] is probably hurt in the rib area now and he wouldn’t have been if he stopped the fight when we saw the towel come in.” Continue reading “Ponce: I thought the fight was over”
