This is his debut at light-welterweight"
Rees looks really condifent, relaxed and ready for this. I still think it's a tall order for him to beat M'Baye - there must be a massive reach disadvantage for him so he needs to get inside. Gavin sometimes has trouble cutting the ring off so if M'Baye boxes sensibly early doors he could dominate. Would love to see *****y win though!
