Default M'Baye v Rees

I'm rooting for him but it is a tall order.

He has to put the pressure on and keep it hot for 12 rounds. He has to go right where Kotelnik went wrong.

Rees looks really condifent, relaxed and ready for this. I still think it's a tall order for him to beat M'Baye - there must be a massive reach disadvantage for him so he needs to get inside. Gavin sometimes has trouble cutting the ring off so if M'Baye boxes sensibly early doors he could dominate. Would love to see *****y win though!

It's a strange one. Especially as it's the WBA and not the WBO as well.

Damn he's short!

The WBA refused Earl as a challenger but not Rees Is a strange one.

The WBA refused some journymen for Mundine too though.

My heart's with Rees, but my head is elsewhere. C'mon Gavin.

Anyone else feel a little uncomfortable about Rees fighting a world class opponent? This could be a massy mismatch.

Come on Gav!

Anyway yes it does seem a big mis-match but M'Baye is good but nothing special.

He must be the smallest lightwelter world title challenger ever at 5 3.

This is just one of the joke shit that FW gets away with. Even if Rees wins, it doesn't mean the fight was right.

The funniest is when you are the WORLD cruiserweight champ but haven't really proven yourself on the WORLD level!

Well I thought Cook was going to win the world title last week and I was wrong and I think Rees is going to get battered this week so who knows i could be wrong again.

It would be better for boxing if the british guys wernt getting battered in World title fights every week though...

The WBA allowed their Bantam champ fight a novice too and the IBF are terrible with It lately.
