Default Rees faces Murray on Dec 8

Quote:
Welshman Gavin Rees will take on England’s John Murray in a thunderous lightweight collision at the Olympia in London on December 8th.



Rees is a former British, European and World Champion and, should he emerge victorious, will likely meet the winner of the WBA lightweight title fight between Richard Abril and Sharif Bogere (scheduled for November 24th in California)



John Murray is also a former British and European Champion who lost his unbeaten record to Kevin Mitchell last July in a classic pitch battle. Despite the loss Murray, a true warrior, immediately accepted a world title bout with the sensational Brandon Rios but was stopped in the eleventh round at New York’s Madison Square Garden.



With neither man in the habit of taking a backward step, Rees and Murray should ignite a belated bonfire on December 8th. Both have an equal amount of fights, and knockouts, on their ledger with Rees 31-1-1 (18KO’s) and Murray 31-2 (18KO’s).



The “Christmas *******” show, promoted by Matchroom, will also feature the highly anticipated duel between Lee Purdy and Carson Jones as well as the return of former European Middleweight Champion, Darren Barker.

Agree it could be card of the year domestically, It really needs to be a 4 hour show!

Rees/Murray
Purdy/Jones
Barker/Hope
Ryder/Qato
Connor/Evangelou II

Then Ochieng, Yafai, Cardle, Ward, callum smith

I like that fight, Yafai clearly isn't going to be tested by area level fighters, Jason is past it but last time out against Martin Ward he showed he still has a bit left.

It will probably be over 8 rounds as Yafai hasn't been past 4 IIRC.

If this was the Murray of the Buckland fight its tough to see Rees living with the extra size and power of Murray. Murray beat up Buckland pretty bad and we know how decent he is coming forward.

Problem is you get the feeling Murray might not be firing on all cylinders anymore.
