Paul Gallen furious at Just Huni’s State or Origin no show

Paul Gallen has vowed revenge on Justis Huni next week after the Olympic medal hopeful failed to show up to promote their fight in the State of Origin series opener last night.

Gallen (11-0-1, 6 KOs) will touch gloves with Huni (4-0, 3 KOs) on June 16 at the International Convention Center in Sydney.

Huni, from Queensland, was seen earlier in the week with the Maroons playgroup but was not present on match day which left former Cronulla Shark furious.

Gallen said the pair missed a golden opportunity to promote next week’s fight, with media as Origin Game One approaching feeling “bored.”

“He didn’t show up, I was very disappointed with that,” Gallen told 2GB Wide World of Sports radio.

“I thought it was a great opportunity. Let me tell you the media all day yesterday got bored.

“Yesterday all the media went to Magnetic Island because they had nothing else to do.

“Justis Huni wouldn’t have come, it would have been a great opportunity to promote the fight. Everyone in Townsville knew that, but he wasn’t up there.

“It was disappointing. The Blues touched up the Queenslanders, I’ll touch it up next week.”
