Paul Gallen fires another shot at Barry Hall for their cross-code boxing clash while giving his rival a VERY brutal nickname
- Paul Gallen is nicknamed opponent Barry Hall & # 39; noodle & # 39; prior to boxing collision
- Gallen said it was embarrassing that they would fight for two minutes
- The pair will compete in the Melbourne Margaret Court Arena on November 15
Paul Gallen fired a shot at Barry Hall for their cross-code boxing flash by revealing a cheeky nickname.
The former captain of Cronulla Sharks said he was the AFL legend & # 39; noodle & # 39; gave a nickname during the launch for his autobiography Heart and Soul on Monday.
& # 39; I signed this book with Barry & # 39; & # 39; Noodles & # 39; & # 39; Hall, & # 39; said Gallen.
& # 39; Train hard, mate. Best wishes, Paul Gallen. & # 39;
The two former football players meet in the ring for a one-time heavyweight stoush called the & # 39; code war & # 39; at the Melbourne Margaret Court Arena on November 15
Gallen explained that the nickname was inspired by Hall requirements in the ring.
& # 39; Barry refuses to fight for three minutes. We fight every two minutes. So I have the nickname & # 39; & # 39; two minute noodles & # 39; & # 39; Gallen said.
The recently retired NRL star will compete against Hall in the 10th professional fight in his career, but says the 42-year-old's refusal to do it for three minutes is not fair.
& # 39; This fight has been talked about for two or three years, so it's not like he just started training. That's why I'm so disappointed that he only fights for two minutes, & said Gallen.
& # 39; Everything is to his advantage. He is six feet six, long range, can puncture me, and he goes to work for two minutes and then gets a minute of rest. It is not correct. & # 39;

Gallen explained that the nickname was inspired by Hall requirements in the ring. & # 39; Barry refuses to fight three-minute laps. We fight every two minutes. So I nicknamed him & # 39; two-minute noodles & # 39; "Gallen said."
It will be Hall & # 39; s first professional fight, but Gallen says the two-minute rounds will work to his advantage.
& # 39; I have sent, emailed, promoters repeatedly calling, & # 39; said Gallen.
& # 39; I'm here to win. I try not to sit here and apologize, I am more annoyed that other people in the boxing area do not seem to like me fighting or other people fighting for whatever reason.
& # 39; If they see us fighting two-minute rounds, I understand. It is humiliating. I don't think it's right. I'm still going to win the fight. Whether I knock him out or do what I have to do for six rounds, I will win. I just think it must be a real fight for a big event. & # 39;
Gallen (pictured with wife Anne) said that he will not pursue a boxing career after the Hall match
Gallen has confirmed that he will not pursue a career in boxing after the Hall match despite hanging up the boots with Cronulla in September.
However, he has long spoken of his desire to fight against former NRL and rugby union champion Sonny Bill Williams, and would seize the opportunity to get in the ring with him.
& # 39; The Sonny Bill one, that's the one we want. I do hospital visits, school visits, company visits, lunches, two weeks in the UK, everywhere I went they were asked. Everywhere I go. I'm not the one to ask, it's him, & he said.
& # 39; It would just be a spectacle and a professional event. I just want to give people what they want to see. & # 39;
