He h as also slammed Gallen’s character in other ways, as well as branding Cronulla itself as a less than salubrious neighbourhood.
“I don’t know Cronulla all that well but to me it comes across as a bit of a bogan suburb with the race riots and stuff like that,” Carr said, according to Fox Sports.
“And Gallen is their head bogan. To be honest I don’t like the bloke.
“He comes across as a boring and arrogant person and people tell me he’s a not a pleasant bloke.
“Even my masseuse who used to massage him says he’s not a nice bloke.”
Carr, a former MIA fighter who has won his two professional boxing bouts so far by knockout, is also convinced he will need a knockout to beat Gallen.
“The other thing about him, he only takes fights he thinks he’ll win. That’s why I’m surprised I got a start,” he added.
“We’re preparing to knock him out because we can’t see a judge’s decision going our way in his home town. I think I can stop him because he’s never fought anyone with my height and my reach.
“He’s been dropped before and I’ve heard he’s been dropped at training. I’ve never been knocked out.”
The fight is scheduled for December 23 at Cronulla’s homeground of Shark Park.
Prior to that fight, Gallen will take on Canberra prop Junior Paulo at Hordern Pavillion next Friday.
