The win over Browne was shocking and proved Gallen is more than just a sideshow, he might be close to 40 years old but he believes he is in tip top shape and conditioning and is young 39, because he hasn’t been damaged from years of boxing.
Tonight he will be in against a fellow undefeated Aussie who is much younger and more technical than himself.
Huni, 22, is unbeaten with a record of 4 wins, 0 losses and 3 wins by KO. Huni comes from Brisbane and as an amateur he won a bronze medal in the super heavyweight division at the 2019 AIBA World Championships in Yekaterinburg, Russia.
