Former NRL star turned boxer Paul Gallen says his next opponent, undefeated 22-year-old heavyweight Justis Huni, has to take responsibility for the insults being thrown around from his camp when they meet in the ring on 16 June.

Huni's father, Rocki, called Gallen a "donkey" in a recent interview, dismissing the 39-year-old Cronulla great as a threat to his son. Justis Huni brushed aside his father's jibes, saying he hasn't spent his life training to just throw insults. Gallen says it's his opponent who will ultimately pay for all the talk. The stage is set.

Gallen (11-0-1, 6 KOs) and Huni (4-0, 3 KOs) meet at the International Convention Centre in Sydney on Wednesday 16 June. The main card action begins from 7pm AEST.

Gallen and Huni last fights

Gallen last stepped into the ring against heavyweight Lucas Browne in April. It was a fairly high-credentialed fight for Gallen, against a former world champion, although Browne was stripped of that title after a failed drugs test. The former NRL star stopped Browne inside the first round.

Huni's last fight was against fellow heavyweight Christian Ndzie Tsoye just a few short weeks ago on 26 May. The fight went the distance with Huni claiming the Australian heavyweight title with a unanimous victory. You can see highlights of that fight below, which includes some comments from Gallen if you listen carefully.

Who will win Gallen vs Huni?

Gallen and Huni are battling it out for the vacant IBF Pan Pacific heavyweight title and the Australian heavyweight title in a night of action featuring six Australian fighters on the card. Russian-born Andrei Mikhailovich and Thai-born Nort Beauchamp, who both now fight out of New Zealand, are the exceptions.

Gallen has proven he's no mug in the ring and respect has grown in boxing circles for him as a serious opponent. In the build-up to this bout, he has sparred with some of Australia's best cruiserweights to ready himself for Huni's noted speed and agility. That looms as his biggest challenge in overcoming the 22-year-old Olympic-bound challenger.

Huni is seen by many as Australia's next big heavyweight hope on the world stage and shapes as the toughest opponent in Gallen's short career. Still preparing for the Olympics, where he hopes to win gold, Huni has a good amateur record behind him, including a bronze medal in the 2019 World Championships.

Huni has a huge reach advantage and a hefty 13cm in height, not to mention his noted quickness and ring work. But he faces a determined, tough and experienced athlete in the boxer opposite him.

The fight is called "Termination Day" because Huni's camp believes their man will terminate Gallen's boxing career. That might not happen, but we think he'll win a fight that will go the distance. Huni by unanimous decision for us.
