Iíve followed Gavinís career for years. Heís good, not great, but he can certainly fight. Not only that, heís become a much, much better fighter since coming down to LW. British and European champion, and former LWW world champion.
80-1 is ridiculous, i can only think some bookies have been swept along on the Broner wave. I often ask myself when will people learn - anything, absolutely anything, can happen in the ring.
Put it this way, DeMarco aside, Rees is about the best fighter Broner will have ever faced.
