Re: Gavin rees vs Adrien broner Feb 16
The lightweight division at the moment is shite. So yeah, maybe Rees is as good as Broner can get for a voluntary but that's more about the quality of fighters available at 135 rather than anything to do with Rees' ability.
Rees is a solid fighter but what has he actually done at lightweight above British level? He beat that French guy for the Euro belt. The same French guy that was lucky enough to get a long count against an old Thaxton. On top of that Rees has had wars with John Watson and Derry Matthews. Is that world class form?
For me Rees wasted his better years. After Kotelnik he should have dropped down immediately to 135 and made a title run.
