Ex-AFL star Tuck KO’d on boxing debut

While NRL star Paul Gallen forges ahead in an unbeaten start to his pro boxing careers, ex-AFL stalwart Shane Tuck endured a rocky introduction to the world of pugilism on Wednesday night.

Squaring off against Lucas Miller on the undercard for the Anthony Mundine-Charles Hatley fight in Melbourne, debutant Tuck was knocked out by a savage right to the chin in the fourth round.

The ring announcer called for an ambulance and the stricken former Richmond Tiger was stretchered out of the arena.

The 33-year-old Tuck played 173 games as a midfielder for the Tigers from 2004-13, kicking 74 goals. He is the son of VFL/AFL games record-holder Michael Tuck, who won seven premierships with Hawthorn.
