Samoan-Australian boxing champ Alex Leapai was on Triple M Brisbane's The Grill Team recently to talk to Marto, Michelle and Ed about his upcoming heavyweight bout with American Malik Scott.

"What is it with you fighting big tall boxers, this bloke is 6'5", you had enough trouble with Klitschko, didn't you learn anything?" opened Marto.

"It’s the way the game is, if you want to fight the best you have to take on who is in front of you, and unfortunately Malik Scott he’s one of the best out of there and like you guys said these guys don’t get any shorter they get taller," explained Leapai.  

"It's been eight years, is that right, since you've fought in Logan?" asked Michelle.

"Been 8 years (since fought in Logan) and I’m just really happy and really looking forward to tonight, to put on a show for all the supporters in Logan and I know the whole Queensland and Australia," said Leapai
 
"The Metro is pretty much the heart of Logan and I wanted to fight where it’s pretty much the centre, where it’s easy for everybody to come you know, theres a lot of people up there that they get on the drink and can’t find their way home, but it’s just closer to home for everybody and you know it’s just my home."

Builder's Revenge Paintball Challenge

It's payback time for A Current Affair's Tim Arvier

After years of literally 'running down dodgy tradies' Marto reckoned Tim was giving hard working (cough) builders like himself a bad name.. So it was time to even things up and give some tradies the chance to get their own back.

Thanks to the guys at Top Gun Paintball for providing the course (and a bunch of highly skilled paintballing tradies), one sunny afternoon in October, it was payback time.

It was all in aid of the Channel Nine Children's Hospital Telethon, Saturday October 11, so the pain (and bruises) Tim suffered were at least for a good cause! More about the telethon here.

Watch the video here:

EXCLUSIVE: Hunt – ‘It’s not about the money’

Karmichael Hunt has spoken exclusively to Triple M Brisbane following his recent switch from the AFL to Rugby.

Karmichael Hunt has spoken exclusively to Triple M Brisbane's Grill Team following his recent switch from the AFL to Rugby.

Hunt, who joined the Queensland Reds last week, spoke to Greg 'Marto' Martin this morning about his move, life in the AFL and much more in his first interview.

The 27 year old has been labelled a mercenary by some but Hunt refutes that. His motivations are elsewhere.

"I think everyone is entitled to their opinion. But for me, money has never been a driving factor for me.

"I had numerous offers while at the Broncos to jump ship and set sail for better shores. It's more about the experience. It's about the fit, the culture and the challenge," he told Triple M Brisbane.

"You get rewarded for your talent. Sometimes dollars are a sore subject in the paper because people who don't play sport tend to think we are overpaid. It's the nature of the market.

"In terms of jumping for money, that's not the case," he explained.
