Sydney Roosters player Willis Meehan has a shot at pro boxing



WILLIS Meehan, the giant Roosters rugby league teenager, is ready to crash tackle the world of professional boxing with his debut in the punch-for-pay ranks next week.

The 195cm, 120kg second-rower will make his professional debut on the undercard to his father Kali’s big battle with New Zealand veteran Shane Cameron at the North Shore Events Centre, Auckland on Saturday week.

The 19-year-old footballer has already had enormous success in boxing, winning the 2013 Australian amateur super-heavyweight title by beating London Olympian Johan Linde before suffering a stunning upset earlier this year against Brisbane’s Joe Goodall for a place on the Commonwealth Games boxing team.
