Rees beating Salita will get him a little recognised in America.
Facing the top contenders for your belt is the way to do it. Your first defence against your number 3 is good.
I can not see Ree's even getting the plaudits he deserves over here never mind in America. He deserves it but you know. The fight could be a great match up and maybe very entertaining as long as Ree's does not blow it like some of our other guys recently.
