Former UFC and PRIDE heavyweight contender Mark Hunt ’s return to competitive action after a three-year hiatus ended in defeat to former rugby star Paul Gallen , who promptly set his sights on another Antipodean MMA hero, Robert Whittaker . Gallen showed a solid chin and remarkable powers of recovery, as he took some thunderous shots from “The Super Samoan” over the course of their boxing match in Sydney. But Gallen’s work rate overall meant that the former Australia international rugby league player took home the win after securing a unanimous decision after six hard-hitting rounds, with the three judges scoring it 58-56, 58-56, 59-55 to extend his professional boxing record to 10-0-1. Seven years his opponent’s junior, Gallen outworked 46-year-old Hunt over the course of their six-round co-main event, but it was Hunt who came closest to ending the fight inside the distance.
