Gallen agrees May 11 clash with Australian heavyweight Kris Terzievski

Paul Gallen will step in the ring in just five weeks after the legend accepted a bout against Aussie heavyweight Kris Terzievski.

Gallen, 40, made an appearance ahead of Harry Garside’s fight with Manuer Matet on Wednesday night to announce his upcoming fight, which will take place in Newcastle on May 11. 

The former Sharks captain will headline the card against Terzievski, while Tim Tszyu’s younger brother Nikita Tszyu will also feature in his second professional bout.

Gallen was most recently in action last December against Darcy Lussick and was ringside as Sonny Bill Williams knocked out AFL great Barry Hall, fueling speculation that he may take on the former New Zealand rugby star.  

‘I got a phone call this afternoon from Matty (No Limit Boxing chief executive Matt Rose) asking if I want to fight on May 11,’ Gallen said.

‘It’s only five weeks away…obviously it’s a quick turnaround, but I think for someone my age who continually trains, I don’t have to worry about a long preparation; I can just rip and tear.

‘I’m actually looking forward to it. I’m really excited to get back in the ring.’
