Re: Australian athletes who could of been decent boxers?
Gary Ablett Snr before the drugs got to him could fight like a machine in the gym by all accounts. Just a freakishly gifted all round athlete.
Wayne Carey had the size and physical tools to make a splash in boxing.
Likewise Jonathan Brown. I actually read somewhere that some boxing trainer who'd worked with Barry Hall and a number of Rugby League clubs said Brown was the most talented fighter out of all of them.
I always thought Andrew Symonds looked like he'd be able to go a bit as well but I haven't heard anything to say he could or couldn't.
