Default Gavin Rees vs ?????? - York Hall, January 12th

So Rees will be there at York Hall on the 12th Jan, but no opponent named yet. This is typical ******. We probably won't find out until the week of the fight. Not sure Frank has the same power to manipulate the WBA rankings as the WBO so I guess it'll have to be someone inside their top 15:

ANDREAS KOTELNIK
MARCOS RENE MAIDANA
DIMITRI SALITA
SOULEYMANE MBAYE
MIGUEL CALLIST
LAMONT PETERSON
WILLY BLAIN
DEMETRIUS HOPKINS
VICTOR ORTIZ
YODSANAN NANTHACHAI
CESAR RENE CUENCA
DAVID TORRES
GIORGIO MARINELLI
BREIDIS PRESCOTT
NORIO KIMURA

Rees seems to think it will be against Kotelnik.

I didn't see his fight against Witter, is he decent?

Think Kotelnik would simply have to much for the one dimensional Rees.

Kotelnik is the mandatory but there was talk of Rees seeking a voluntary defence before that.

Salita has also been rumoured to be a possible opponent for Rees.

No opponent or date is official yet but Gavin is training for this date. It will be on the Johanneson/Mitchell bill.

You would think ****** would put him on a card with Macca rather than the undercard of a british title fight!

They are going to need to find someone Rees can beat. It's a shame FW can't manipulate the WBA rankings like he allegedly does with the WBO.

You are absolutely right!

Though ****** is known for calling fights off 1 hour before the first bell rings...though I hope that this is going to get trough as proposed and finally give Kotelnik his long deserved world championship belt...Kotelnik UD Rees...

Boxrec are mentioning Rees fighting Kotelnik on the Skelton/Chagaev undercard.

Think Rees can beat Kotelnik, he's slow tight and basic a bit like Earl.
