Mark Hunt is aware of how to promote a struggle — and the Super Samoan was it yet again on Tuesday in Melbourne, lashing Paul Gallen ahead of their showdown upcoming 7 days.
The forty six-year-aged Hunt has not fought because 2018 — and has not won a struggle because 2017 — as he completed his time in the UFC with a few straight defeats.
But with one of the most devastating right arms in fight sports record, Hunt just desires to find that one punch for Gallen’s entire world to appear crashing down.

“I’m likely to give it to him tough. He’s not as tough as me. Not in this realm,” Hunt said. “In the footy area, he can pass the ball to an individual else but this is the struggle small business. You cannot pass the ball — operate that sh*t straight sucker.”
Gallen final fought to a draw with Barry Hall, who was producing his skilled debut, in 2019 — the very first blemish on a record that reads nine–one.
Now, Hunt is on the lookout to give Gallen his very first ‘1’ in the reduction column on December 16 in Sydney, when Tim Tszyu will take on Bowyn Morgan.
“It’s much too late now,” Hunt said when questioned what suggestions he’d give Gallen. “You’ve dug your grave. I’m just likely to nail that coffin for you.
“My right hand into his lips. Out. Absent.”
Gallen has invested time not too long ago in Queensland, sparring with Alex Leapai and Herman Ene-Purcell as he prepares for what could be the stiffest examination of his boxing career to day.
“He still thinks he’s the ideal fighter in the entire world,” Gallen said of Hunt.
“His perspective is [that] I’m not likely to be ready to manage him. But I’m likely to shock anyone. I’m likely to manage him, and defeat him.”
“All the strain is on him, if he receives overwhelmed by a section-time boxer, an ex-footy player, then his legacy arrives into concern.”
