Hunt tries to knockout rugby star on weight-in (VIDEO)

MMA legend Mark Hunt is so eager to get his hands on former rugby great Paul Gallen that he took a swing at him during the weight-in for their bout.

Both men talked trash at the press conference for the boxing fight card in Sydney. After hitting the scale, Hunt threw a punch before he was held back by officials.

Hunt, a former UFC and PRIDE star, will be fighting for the first time in two years after a decision loss to Justin Willis that led to his exit from the UFC. The “Super Samoan” is currently appealing a lawsuit he filed against the promoter for allegedly conspiring to deny him a fair fight against Brock Lesnar at UFC 200.

Gallen, although a former rugby star, has a pro boxing record of a 9-0-1. He most recently fought this past November, drawing former Australian rules footballer Barry Hall in the squared circle.
