Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City - WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner (26-0, 22 KOs) left a lasting impression on British challenger Gavin Rees (37-2-1, 19 KOs). Rees, who wasn't happy with his failed strategy, was blown away by Broner's power. He was punished in the third, and then suffered knockdowns in the fourth and fifth rounds.

Rees' team bragged about his own power prior to the match but says the punching power of Broner shocked him.

"I'm disappointed in my performance," Rees said. "I made a lot of mistakes. I think I have a better skill set than that. He hits incredibly hard for a lightweight. I knew he hit hard, but the power just stunned me. He's the best I've ever been in with."

[QUOTE=BTTAG145]Why are people so fixed about Rees height? I thought the divisions were by weight not height? A little midget named Mike Tyson used to KO HWs. Recently a lil midget named Pacquiao was holding down WW. Just admit that you're a hater and stop making up dumb excuses.[/QUOTE...
