How to watch Code War: Paul Gallen vs Barry Hall boxing fight

Posted: 15 November 2019 11:15 am

It's a Code War, who'll win Barry Hall or Paul Gallen?

The Code War match is set to be one of the biggest boxing matches in Australian history. Which is something that the greater Australian boxing community I'm sure will cringe over.

That's due to the fact that Hall is making his professional fighting debut and is known from his AFL career. On the other hand, Gallen has at least been between the ropes going undefeated in his nine fights. Though again, he's known for his storied rugby league career.

It's AFL vs NRL, Victoria vs New South Wales – call it what you want, everybody will be watching the fight.

Who will win Gallen vs Hall?

Finder already has an everything you need to know article for Gallen vs Hall, that includes a fight preview. Gallen will head into the fight as a favourite but may be starting to feel the pressure.

The two have also exchanged a war of words in the lead up to the fight and now seem to genuinely dislike each other.

Gallen has been extremely vocal about Hall only agreeing to fight 6 x 2 minute rounds, rather than the standard 3 minutes. That probably tells you all you need to know about Hall.

Hall has never had a professional boxing fight despite being a teenage state champion. Which would make it all the more embarrassing if Gallen lost to Hall on debut.

As the fight is taking place in Melbourne also expect the crowd to be pro Hall. The Victorian state will also be hoping that the AFL can get bragging rights over the NRL.

Strong rumours have also floated around that if Gallen wins he has a $4 million deal in place to fight Sonny Bill Williams.
