NRL great Gallen (9-0, five KOs) will face Hall in his professional boxing debut on November 15 at Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena.
But rather than fighting regular three-minute rounds, the bout will be six rounds of two minutes. Gallen branded the decision “embarrassing” and compared Hall to two-minute noodles.
Hall wasn’t happy, turning the two-minute noodles sledge back on his opponent with a menacing edge.
“Judging by Paul Gallen’s latest attempt of trash talk… I wouldn’t be surprised if his new book is written in crayon,” Hall wrote in an Instagram post.
“I am a serious fighter and I am prepared. 2 min noodles might be the food for him after this fight!!!”
Hall also took a crack at Gallen’s fight record, suggesting that it was built on mismatches. He said that Gallen’s latest win over John Hopoate, a fellow ex-rugby league player and former Australian heavyweight champion, came against a “totally unfit” opponent.
