Former NRL star Paul Gallen has no chance of beating Olympic-bound star Justis Huni on June 16.

Not only is that the view of the bookmakers, but also of Huni’s promoter Dean Lonergan.

Speaking at a press conference to hype the fight, Lonergan dished out quite the burn.

“Paul’s got less chance of winning this fight as he did as captain of State of Origin against Queensland,” said Lonergan.

“I think once in eight or nine Origins he won.”

Bookmaker bet365 share that sentiment for the fight.

Huni, who will be part of Team Australia at the Olympics this summer, is a clear 1.08 favourite.

Gallen is considered a 7.50 underdog for the toughest test of his professional boxing career by far.
