Following his fights with Tsoye and Gallen – which are only three weeks apart – the Brisbane-based fighter will head to the Tokyo Olymipcs.
One of the most skillful heavyweights Australia has ever produced, Huni is considered a legitimate gold medal prospect.

Gallen has signed a two-fight deal with Huni’s promoter Dean Lonergan, with a rematch on the cards after the Olympics.

GALLEN VS HUNI AND LONERGAN: THE WAR OF WORDS – A TIMELINE
The build-up to this fight has been pretty spicy, with Lonergan and Gallen engaging in a war of words.
Huni has largely kept out of it, but stands up for himself when he needs to. Here’s a quick rundown of everything that’s been said so far.
Gallen demands larger slice of the pie
It started before a contract had even been signed.
In late April, fresh off his win over Browne, Gallen said he’d been offered a fight with Huni, but told Lonergan the payday wasn’t big enough.
Lonergan’s dire warning for Gal
Lonergan listened, increased his offer and the fight was on.
The promoter gave Gallen a dire warning though, telling Sporting News: “At the end of the day, Paul Gallen is just another bum that I’m feeding to my beast.”
Gallen fires back
It didn’t take long for Gallen to hit back at Lonergan, saying “people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
At this time, the pair were still haggling over where the fight would be held – in addition to a whole lot of other things.
Gallen threatens to walk away
With a location still not agreed upon in early May, Gallen threatened to walk away from the bout altogether.
Gal and Lonergan had initially agreed to host the fight in Sydney, but Lonergan reportedly tried to change it to Queensland.
Not the most popular bloke north of the border, Gallen knew he wouldn’t get a fair shake with the judges, so threatened to pull out.
“He’s got until the end of the week to sort this out, or it’s going to be off,”
