Rees would be the first man to admit he's no Joe Calzaghe.....they are both Welsh fighting men, but the similarities end right there.

I am expecting Gav to give Broner more of a fight than most people seem to believe he's capable off.

Rees is short, built like a brick ****house, has fast and reasonably heavy hands and will come into the fight with the right attitude and in-shape. He's quit drinking and taking his diet seriously.

So I am expecting Broner to cop a few proper shots and have to dig a bit deeper than before to get this win.

Rees will go out on his shield but not before Broner learns that any fight against a Welshman is a hard fight.

Tommy Farr v Joe Louis rather than Calzaghe v Lacy methinks.

Rees will be Broner's kryptonite, Hamed's Barrera, Pacquiao's Marquez, Lacy's Calzaghe, Hatton's Cortez.

Watch.

Must of been why he was a MASSIVE favorite to not only win but win by KO right? Here is a link to the BoxingScene staff predictions thread for that fight. Nearly everyone picked Lacy to destroy Calzaghe before the fight.

This fight is a mismatch. Rees has a very little chance to win this fight. I am more interested in the co feature fight.

The fight is a mismatch but with the right gameplan and Broner underestimating Rees and having an off-night, who knows?

Broner is overrated. He is a little version of Berto. Good upperbody movement, good combinations, hes quite explosive inside but his footwork is absolutely sh1t. It is not me hating, I am just telling it how it is.
Watch his fights, the man has two punches. Left hook, right uppercut. Just like Berto. Another top heavy American HBO hypejob.

If that is a top p4p fighter and the future of boxing, I need to find a new sport.

I agree Broner does have flaws but he's definitely better than Berto.

He atleast has a style and some form of defense, and some form of skill.

Berto has nothing but speed and power.

I think Broner will have a lot of trouble against a pressure fighter. Matthysee would give him all kinds of trouble IMO.

the actual odds were almost dead even. when money was on the line people didn't trust lacy or calzaghe since both were unproven.
