Paul Gallen Looks Pretty Stacked Ahead Of His Boxing Match Against Justis Huni

Paul Gallen is in the shape of his life heading into his all-Aussie boxing match against Justis Huni.

The former rugby league player is set to lock horns with Olympian-to-be Huni tonight (AEST) and Gallen gave everyone a taste of what to expect at the weigh-ins - well, sort of.

Despite being significantly shorter than his opponent, ex-Cronulla Sharks skipper Gallen looked absolutely jacked as he stepped onto the scales alongside Huni.

And while he has always been renowned for staying in shape, G-Train looks in tip top condition for this upcoming fight.

For his last bout against former world champ Lucas 'Big Daddy' Browne, Gallen weighed in at 102.2kgs and still looked as sharp as ever.

This time, he tipped the scales at 99.4kgs - over 6kgs less than what he weighed during his playing days for the Sharks and New South Wales Blues.

As for the bookies' favourite Huni, he weighed in at 106.35kgs.

Fans on social media were equally as impressed with Gallen's physique and heaped praise on the 39-year-old after Main Event posted a video of the official weigh-ins on social.

One commented: "Gal is built like a brick s**thouse."

While another added: "Gallen looking super fit."

Speaking to the media, Gallen reckons he has always been naturally light but playing rugby league meant be needed to stack on the weight.

"That's just the sport, a totally different sport to rugby league," he said.

"Rugby league is very power based and fair bit of weights involved and I obviously don't do that amount of weights anymore but the cardio involved and sparring 10 rounds three or four times a week, it builds up. And the running as well.

"I've definitely lost a bit of weight and feeling really fit at the moment but totally different fitness to rugby league.

The build-up to the heavyweight bout has been pretty fiery to say the least with Gallen taking aim at Huni, Huni's father and even his promoter Dean Lonergan.

We're only a matter of hours away from the bout now so it's not too long until the duo will finally be able to get their hands on each other.

It's sure to be fireworks, whichever way it goes down.
