Cronulla Sharks captain Paul Gallen wants to get inside the boxing ring one more time before the beginning of the 2015 NRL season.
Gallen defeated former teammate Anthony Watts in an anti-climactic fight in Sydney on Wednesday, with Watts having to retire after 88 seconds after dislocating his shoulder.
Footy is going to be my number one priority. That’s got to be first and foremost, but I want to have one more fight before the season starts,” he is quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald.
Gallen was sceptical when asked about the possibility of a rematch with Watts.
“I’m not the kind of bloke who would be calling anyone out. I wouldn’t know what other boxers are at my level to fight. I won’t be fishing for just anyone who is out there.”
“I’ve probably ticked it off the list. We’ll see what happens; if something was to come up and it’s the right offer, we’ll see.
“We had no bad blood before this but there was some carry on [in the lead up]. I probably carried on a bit too.
“After our first exchange I could tell he was a bit rattled and I was pretty confident I was going to get it done. Unfortunately he got injured.
“I went to try and find him but he wasn’t around. Hopefully he’s all right.”
