Prenice Brewer and Terrell Gausha were part of the "Fab Five"— not the famous Michigan college basketball team and most certainly not The Beatles — but a standout amateur boxing program put together by Renard Safo in Cleveland, Ohio. The group included Brewer, Gausha, Willie Nelson, Yuandale Evans, and Brett Simmons.

Now, the longtime friends will reunite as Brewer serves as an assistant coach to Manny Robles. Gausha aims to achieve the one thing that has eluded him — a world title — when he fights WBC middleweight titleholder Carlos Adames on Saturday as part of the pay-per-view undercard of Gervonta Davis vs. Frank Martin.

Brewer was brought in as a second pair of eyes to assist Gausha (24-3-1, 12 KOs), 36, when he fought Jamontay Clark. Gausha won via a violent second-round technical knockout. Brewer has remained part of the team since then, but the journey hasn't been smooth. Gausha fought Tim Tszyu, dropping him in the first round but ultimately losing a unanimous decision. Since that loss, Gausha has fought twice, with his last fight being a majority decision win over KeAndre Leatherwood as he stepped up from 154 to 160.

“Terrell has been a professional through and through for this camp,” Brewer said. “He didn’t cut any corners.

“He has been investing in all the right stuff, from recovery to nutrition. He is treating the camp like a pro’s pro.”

Gausha, a 2012 U.S. Olympian, has had mixed success at the highest level of the sport, with his best night in the ring being the win over Clark. Now, at 36, Gausha is getting what could be his last shot at a title. 

Adames (23-1, 18 KOs), 30, was recently promoted to the outright WBC middleweight titleholder after holding the interim title for 18 months and defending it once against former Julian "J-Rock" Williams. This will be Adames’ first fight as an official world champion.

“I think Adames has a lot of pressure on his shoulders coming into this fight and something to prove,” Brewer said. “We are not looking to land one punch, we are coming to compete and take control from the first to last round. Terrell is sharp and focused.”

Brewer points to Gausha's experience as an advantage.

“Everything he has been through, the journey he went on, led him to this camp being as good as it is,” Brewer said. “I have never seen a fighter stick to a plan and follow it the way Terrell has for this camp.”
