Gal gets win number 7


  • Banned

    Paul Gallen gets his 7th win from 7 starts against the loud mouthed Samoan Ryan Carr-Ketu with a 4th round KO.
    For an amature fighter, Gal shows he has a bit there…not too shabby.



  • I’m not sure how this helps either of them. I guess it’s a nice distraction for Gallen and some publicity for the other guy. Let’s face it Gallen isn’t going to get far as a boxer.



  • I’d say he’s already gotten further than he expected to at the start…. Probably helped them both financially…



  • Gallen is an athlete, so he automatically has an endurance advantage over his opponents. I think its a joke you can come into a sport and have it as easy as Gallen has had it. The same thing happened to Mundine and SBW. It does the sport no favours because you pay no dues. Now i’m not a fan of the UFC, but when CM Punk made the leap from professional wrestling, he trained for nearly 2 years before his first fight. And when he did finally have his first fight, he wasn’t fed scraps. Mark Hunt whipped him, That’s paying your dues. What dues have Gallen, SBW, Sandow, Carney and Paulo paid? It makes it look like anyone can walk in off the street and do what they do which makes the art hard to respect.



  • Well it depends who you are fighting. If a top level boxer played B grade park footy in the bush they’d probably go alright. Mundine had a pedigree, trained as a junior and could box. SBW was fighting milk bottles or washed up former good fighters. Even then he got found out and his corner basically shortened the fight. Gallen is fighting journeymen.

    You’re right they haven’t paid their dues but they’re hardly fighting for big titles.



  • Hard to believe that such “sport” still exists given the knowledge of brain damage to combatants, let alone the emergence of the UFC. Have to admit to seeing bugger all of it as watching people attack each other in such a manner does nothing for me, but surely it is similarly damaging as the old “art”.

    Doubt CM Punk would have fought Mark Hunt. There would be at least 30 kgs weight difference between those two blokes.



  • A lot of these “sideshow” boxing exhibition bouts between former/current footballers are for charity so I don’t see the harm. A bit of fun. People watch it mainly because the players involved are usually pretty high-profile so people are interested to see how they go……people would probably also watch Shane Warne and Michael Clarke swing their handbags at each other in a boxing ring for a giggle.

    He fought Mickey Gall. Hunt was Brock’s last opponent. Excuse the confusion.



  • Undefeated and still a smashed crab idiot.
    Congrats Gal you moronic pep tide filled street shark looking tool.

    He is an amature … what dues do you wish he pay?
    Up until now he fought other amatures. Now he has fought a low level pro. For mine he is paying his dues right now. Whats wrong with that?

    I agree, he’s fighting guys around his level at the moment, which is paying his dues. Had he knocked out 2-3 scrubs then been given a title fight I would think that makes the sport a joke.

    The CM Punk comparison is a little silly, Punk went between two crafts that are somewhat similar (several guys jump from MMA to Pro wrestling or vice versa), yet he wouldn’t ease his way into the sport and went for a guy above his level to start, and was subsequently destroyed.



  • Theres a level of respect from me for any bloke that steps into a ring, some (Tszyu for example) get more respect than others

    Totally agree Ink

    Stuff can get real serious real quick in a boxing ring

    How many blokes have died in the ring over the years
