Bodene Thompson v Paul Gallen to headline Super 8

By Tamati Tiananga

Warriors newcomer Bodene Thompson is ready to take on Paul Gallen in next week's Super 8 boxing event.

To help boost his training he's had boxing pros Monty Betham, Hemi Ahio and Sefo Falekaono lending him a hand. 

Bodene will meet the Cronulla Sharks skipper for the first time tomorrow ahead of their bout next week which will be a little different to playing against Gallen on the footy field.

Coach Lolo Heimuli says in the three weeks of training, Bodene has shown great skill.  Gallen is said to be targeting Sonny Bill Williams but must overcome Bodene.

Their fight will headline next week's event.
