Default Re: Rees next defence

Rees v Mbaye was an odd fight. It was like Mbaye never really got going - not to take any credit away from Rees who thoroughly deserved to win.

As for Salita, this could be the break he has been waiting for after a frustrating spell - he was due to fight this month but that was postponed as he injured his hand in training. His boxing career has been static - some would say this has been of his own making as he has been criticised for turning down opponents that may have got him more recognition. Instead of fighting Gatti he let Gomez jump the queue - who went on to punish him. That fight could have been a turning point in Salitas career had he pushed for it. Maybe he now sees the Rees fight as his best chance at a world title shot?
