BoxingScene has been advised that an agreement has been reached for WBA lightweight champion Richard Abril (17-3-1) to face British lightweight champion Gavin Rees (37-1-1) in the UK.  According to Abril the fight will take place either in late September or October.

"We have agreed to fight Rees.  The fight will take place in late September or in early October.  It depends on what date the British TV gives us," Abril told BoxingScene.com

Rees last fought on July 7th when he knocked out Derry Matthews at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield.  Abril last fought in April when he lost a controversial decision to former champion Brandon Rios who came into the fight overweight.

Abril said that he looks forward to the challenge of fighting Rees in his backyard and that he is sure that he will win the fight.

"It will be my first time fighting in that country and it will be a great experience for me.  I am ready for whatever he brings and I promise you that I will win because I will give everything I have when I step inside the ring," Abril confidently stated.

I just knew that Brandon "Bum Bum" Rios was not going to rematch Abril, even though he was willing to come up to 140 or 147 to do it. Oh well, at least Abril is still champion and getting another opportunity to show how good he is by fighting in the UK. I'm expecting this to look like the Kotelni...

[QUOTE=jsfd26]Well Abril holds the title for the most fights robbed from him. So I expect another robbery.[/QUOTE] Over Campillo?

Abril made Rios look like a goddamned amateur. If he gets robbed again that'll be some kind of travesty. I really do hope he's able to stop Rees in order to secure the win. Abril has got talent real talent, and if he were a bigger puncher he'd be even more dangerous than he is. He's dangerous ...
