Paul Gallen will fight Darcy Lussick in a heavyweight showdown in Sydney tonight as part of the Footy Fight Night Christmas Bash. Join The Roar for live round-by-round updates including parts of the undercard from 7:30pm AEDT
Gallen was supposed to fight Josh Aloiai earlier this month but the fight had to be cancelled when Aloiai tested positive to COVID-19.
Gallen is the favourite in the 3-round fight but Lussick can’t be underestimated after he knocked out Justin Hodges two years ago.
Incidentally, Justin Hodges is also fighting tonight in the undercard against Nathan Ross while Harry Garside will be his pro debut after winning the heart and minds of Australia at the Tokyo Olympics with a bronze medal.
