Patrick Johnson the sprinter had the physical attributes to of been a boxer and I heard that Scott Prince was awesome in the gym the year that be was out with a broken leg, there was talk of him switching back then.

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.
