The lack of skill, from both, was on show from the off and in the opneing round Gallen was unexpectedly dropped. The fitness of the Rugby player helped him recover but he seemed in trouble several other times in the round. Foolishly in round 2 Purcell dropped his hands and got clouted. This caused him to be temporarily stunned and Puercell went in for the finish which he inevitably got.
Amazingly, and despite the referee calling a halt to the fight, both men continued to fight after the stoppage with Purcell seemingly semi-recovered by the time the bout was stopped. This lead to a scene of both corners enterting the ring to to stop the fight.
Aussies, they might not make many top class boxers but they sure do give us entertainment!
