Why was M'Baye constantly trying to nail Rees with the right hand and hard right hands, if he was going to throw a fight he would not be trying to take Rees head off now would he?

Give Rees some credit for his win, this bull is tarnishing his win.

M'baye is just a crazy ****er. Bit like Danny Williams.

It may or may not have been but there's really no answer for one of the biggest non efforts in a title fight since Tarver fought Hopkins. I don't think being lazy or unmotivated cuts it, possibly overtrained if anything.

It was NOT a fix.

Congratulations to Rees on a career best win.

That was by far the most pathetic fight iv ever seen. M`baye is a world class operator and iv seen him many a time on Eurosport.Theres no way in a million years a domestic bust like Ree`s should have won a fight like that.M`baye simply did nothing.It was the most disgusting performance iv ever seen.And if the fix wasnt in ****** should drop him immediately.Whats even worse was that this was for one of the 3 major world titles.That is utterly shambolic.Ree`s isnt even remotely close to world class.As soon as he gets in the ring with a REAL world title operator he gets canned.Ree`s has no business at 140 and should have stayed at featherweight.His record although padded and mildy impressive as he is unbeaten has ZERO names on it.I dont believe his even contested a domestic title?!?!?!?

As someone said, is his last fight M'Baye looked equally bad. Plus at the end of the fight it was obvious M'Baye was trying to take Rees out. I think it was a case of M'Baye underestimating Rees, and also because Rees had never done 12 rounds he probably thought he could wait till Gavin ran out of steam, and just waited too long.

The WBA have pulled this shit loads lately, Bumdine and Sturm both fought nobodies in their recent defenses. The funniest thing is, not only had Rees never fought for a domestic title, he had never fought at 140 or fought a 12 round fight. Its really strange how someone who has never fought a name fighter, never fought for a domestic title and never fought at 140 mysteriously gets a world title shot

m'bayes last fight was kotelnik though, a fringe world class operator himself, who few people look good against.

I predicted this a while back. (Khan to fight Rees)

Rees fought the fight of his life and what particularly impressed me and others around me was the hand speed, work rate and will to win. M'aye clearly had a hard time hitting Rees and the Calzaghe gameplan worked a treat.

We have to be realistic here, Rees is the WBA champion of the world.

I would be even more surprised if Rees manages to win his next fight.

Who next??

Witter - Unification
Hatton
Khan

If I was his team I would be chasing one of the BIG money fights above and not the mandatory against Kotelnik.

Not, not a fix, the dude was over-rated anyway, he was shite i n his last fight as well. Well done to Rees, he gave him all the trouble he could handle. Mbaye, looked disheartened after 4 rounds and I knew it was only a case of keeping it going and Rees would be champ, must admit thought Rees would run out of steam and get caught late on, all credit to the wee man. Maybe now Calzaghe will get some credit for producing good fighters, the guys been getting stick from certain parties for years about his lack of experience, just goes to show you. Well done the Welsh boys ****** will be loving it now, whats the chance of Rees v Khan, he will see it an easy win for Khan but you never know cause Rees is a speedy wee guy, and he slips punches really well. I ****IN LOVED IT

It did look very strange indeed, he simply could not or would not
throw anything menacing at Rees and whilst you can give credit to Gavin for his performance, that was not a performance worthy of an area champ from M'Baye, let alone a world champ

Will throw my two penneth in re conspiracy, how about this one

Rematch in Wales on the undercard of Calzaghe/Kessler in November.
This will sell now as for a proper world title, will be reasonably cheap to finance, revenge angle for M'Baye and good ticket sales for another Welshman on the bill.

And there's more

***** keeps the title, for either Khan to fight the winner say April next year, or as mentioned a nice easy one for Ricky at some stage.

Fun this

These quotes strike me "I will be a world champion at 21", "I trust Frank to help me get to were I want to be"
I haven't seen the fight but that sounds like a sound theory, I'll go with that. Look for Rees to fight a couple of set-ups then Khan-Rees will be announced by *****.

Some nice stand aside money to keep Kotelnik away one thinks.
