NRL star wants three fights after the season is over including Slice.
Kimbo Slice, the bare-knuckle street brawler who turned being a viral sensation on YouTube into a paid career inside the ring and the cage is on the radar of Paul Gallen.
A big-money showdown against Slice – who met the Sharks skipper last January – is one of three fights that Gallen wants to tackle during the off-season.
Gallen is said t looking at a return to the ring in September, by which time the last-placed Sharks will be out of action, against a Queensland opponent in Toowoomba.
His Four Nations commitments then take precedence during October and November, but there will still be time for further bouts closer to Christmas and next February.
Gallen made his pro boxing debut on the eve of this season, recovering from an early knock-down to TKO Herman Ene-Purcell in an entertaining fight.
On Slice’s last visit to Australia, Gallen happily posed for the cameras and shook hands with the YouTube sensation at Cronulla Sharks training in the lead-up to Daniel Geale’s demolition job on Anthony Mundine.
It’s already been a massive year for Gallen.
From winning the Wally Lewis Medal to being touted as the next Immortal by the great Bob Fulton and even talk of a bronze statue of the Blues skipper being built at ANZ Stadium, Gallen has made every post a winner despite the ongoing ASADA investigation looming.
