And while the AFL threw the book at Hall, handing the full-forward a seven match ban for the wild strike, the incident was a light bulb moment for boxing promoters at home and abroad.

Hall had a storied amateur career and won the Victorian age title when he was 16 but gave away the gloves for the AFL just a year later and went on to have a successful career.

Despite the lack of ring time and his time away from the sport, boxing promoters swarmed around Hall, with some branding him a potential $10 million man in the ring.

Through his friendship with former world champion Vic Darchinyan, the 194cm Hall caught the eye of American boxing promoter, Gary Shaw, who invited him to be a guest at Darchinyan's Las Vegas super-flyweight unification bout with Mexican Cristian Mijares in late 2008.

Shaw took one look at the vision of Hall's punch on Staker and predicted the former AFL star could make it in the squared circle as a professional but the Swans had other ideas.

Hall was contracted to Sydney for the 2009 season and for whatever reason, he decided to not take the risk at the ripe old age of 32 to start a new career in an uncompromising sport like boxing. After the 2009 season Hall left the Swans and signed on with the Western Bulldogs for another two years before calling time on his footy career.

Fast-forward a decade and Hall finds himself in a precarious position, facing off with former NRL star and NSW captain Paul Gallen in what's been dubbed the "Cross Code war" in a bout consisting of six-two minute rounds with a host of professional fighters on the under card.

The fight will be Hall's professional debut, while Gallen has racked up nine victories in as many bouts, with five out of the nine being against former and current NRL players. Even though Gallen has more experience in the ring in recent years than Hall, the former Western Bulldog will have no trouble finding his feet in the ring according to legendary boxing trainer Johnny Lewis.

Lewis, who's arguably Australia's most successful trainer, has trained six world champions including Jeff Fenech and Kostya Tszyu and spent some time guiding Hall in the ring some years before his infamous punch on Staker.

"I remember Barry Hall some years ago, I did a bit of work with him and I had no doubt he had the ability to be the Australian heavyweight champion," Lewis told Wide World of Sports.

"I thought he could win it in his first fight if he wanted to. That was back around 2003. I know its 17 years later but Barry had the ability without doubt."

Lewis, 75, has been part of the Australian boxing scene for over 50 years and knows how difficult it is to develop skills in the ring. In most cases, athletes would struggle to maintain a level of skill, fitness and intensity in a professional setting after years out of the sport. And while Hall has never been a full-time professional boxer, Lewis firmly believes that the former Swans' star has enough natural talent and muscle memory to replicate the kind of performance that had him highly touted as an amateur.

"If you haven't ridden a bike in 15 years then it still won't take you long to get the hang of it right away," he said.

"Barry's very good off the jab, he brings his punches together but his work off the jab is impressive. He's a very heavy-handed puncher."

Without a decent sample size of Hall's skills, it's difficult to gauge how he'll handle himself against Gallen, yet the tale of the tape suggests a fighter of Hall's size could trouble the shorter NRL star.

Giving away 14cm in height also comes with a distinct reach disadvantage for the former Blues captain.

Gallen has sparred similar sized fighters in preparation but considering the fight is only over 6x2 minute rounds, if Hall finds his jab early then Gallen could find it hard to dominate which could force him to abandon his fight plan and swarm Hall out of frustration.

The pair faced off in a colourful press conference at Crown Casino on Wednesday morning, where Gallen was quick to shut down claims Hall's size will be a defining factor.

"You'll have to wait and see on Friday night what's going to happen, but that just won't happen," Gallen said.

"I know it won't, I've trained hard for this and prepared well.

'It was a big burden on my partner': Barry Hall unlikely to agree to boxing rematch with Paul Gallen after draw because training was 'taxing' on his children and girlfriend Lauren Brant - as she cheers him on from the stands

  'It was a big burden on my partner': Barry Hall unlikely to agree to boxing rematch with Paul Gallen after draw because training was 'taxing' on his children and girlfriend Lauren Brant - as she cheers him on from the stands Barry Hall tied with Paul Gallen during their much-anticipated 'Code War' bout in Melbourne on Friday night. But the 42-year-old sportsman says he is unlikely to face a rematch as training for the event was too 'taxing' on his partner, Lauren Brant, and their two young sons, Miller, two, and Houston, five months.The former AFL star said after the boxing bout: 'It's been a big burden on my family. I haven't been the best dad for seven or eight weeks.'And I really pride myself on that. I miss my boys. Daddy's coming home tomorrow, fellas,' he added.

"I've sacrificed so much for the past two months to be prepared for Friday night, and come Friday night he won't be able to stop me.

"He knows all this, I can see the fear in him."

Gallen has the runs on the board when it comes to experience but the level of competition he's gone up against has been criticised by members of the boxing community.

The former NSW captain has spent the past five years honing his skills in the ring albeit against fighters who aren't highly recognised. Hall also made light of Gallen's opponents, leading to the former Sharks skipper to defend himself.

"I don't think anyone can bag who I've fought," Gallen wrote in a piece for the Athletes Voice. "I've only ever gone up against professional athletes or people with more combat sports experience than myself."

Lewis was also critical of Gallen in the past but the boxing icon said the ex-NRL star deserves respect for the way he's developed over the past few years.

"Paul Gallen when he first started, I was one of the critics but he's really applied himself through it and he has improved with every fight," he said.

"Both guys are both superbly fit. If you see the heavyweights in the US some of them are tripping over their belly buttons but these guys have gone about it in a proper manner.

"I think at this particular time both fighters have a 50-50 chance of winning it. I'll be very surprised if it's not a good fight."
