Yeah i get what Ishy means, then again i remember Ricky Burns moaning about Kevin O'Hara roughing him up and being dirty in a close battle then within a year he's a world champion.

Boxing is a funny old game and some fighters do go down to level of opponents. Gavin's problem for me is lack of stamina and concentration in the fight against Murray and Watson i think he boxed well then just put himself on snooze when he should of finished job. Got tired and made hard graft of what should of been lightwork.

Exactly, if he's letting John Watson back into a fight after dominating early what's he going to do at this level? I'm sure Rees has admitted in the past that he hasn't always lived the life and now he's in his 30's I think it's starting to tell.

I hope Broner goes to 140 after this. That would serve Burns right.

Belt holder offered big fight in Vegas, doesn't take it? Disgrace

Yeah he was in pubs, drinking and liked a ruck to. I think he was underwhelmed being at that level as well TBH. I think Lockett pulled him and told him he's got to work harder cos those fights the gassing was down to him maybe not pushing himself cos he knew he was a lot better then them.

Then again he tires then gets a second wind then stops them later in fight so it's a strange situation with him but he seems slightly fitter.

I think Frank W has to take a lot of blame, i remember Gavin being around 26-0 before even having a real notable fight. I mean before he beat M'Baye he faced 3 fights Watson, Chill John and Billy Smith. Gavin's natural talent and obviously good plan won him title but the match making left a lot to be desired he rotted for a long time the lad people forget that.

Matchroom have been steady with him, good and regular money for him but it's a shame he couldn't of got a easier fight for a title but he will relish this big chance.

I like Burns but this is what i hope happens.

He has no reason for turning down this fight, no excuses.

Then you'll see Nelson come on here & say Broner moved up to duck Burns

If I remember right there was quite a number that did give Rhodes a fair chance, I think it's not really a case of overestimating Rhodes/Rees' ability more of underestimating Alvarez's//berto's ability. I remember the hate Alvarez used to get, saying he will be found out when he eventually steps up but he has answered every question so far.

It's evident that Broner is not well liked on here, I don't really like him personally too much here and that can often cloud judgement towards a boxers ability. I really think Broner is just on an another level to Rees, but upsets do happen!
