First of all having him at #5 P4P is ridiculous. I don't agree with that, he hasn't done enough yet to merit that spot.
But as I understand it Abril already has a fight scheduled with Bogere. And Vasquez turned down an offer to fight him. (Plus Ricky Burns is making unreasonable purse demands.)
Given all that taking the Rees fight is fine. He's the next highest ranked top 10 fighter available.
