Gavin Rees on Broner: I'm Going To Knock This Prick Out!

ADRIEN BRONER VS. GAVIN REES FINAL PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES

Adrien Broner, WBC Lightweight World Champion

"What can I say?  I'm 23 [years old].  I'm young and I'm getting it.

"I don't underestimate him [Rees].  If we stood face-to-face, I probably couldn't see him, but I respect him as a fighter.

"I respect every fighter because only a boxer knows what we go through once we get into that ring.

"Training camp was great.  We don't watch tape.  I've never seen him [Rees] fight before.

"They took away my Twinkies during this camp.  [Referring to Hostess going out of business.]

"He [Rees] is a former champion at light welterweight.  He's coming down in weight so he is used to getting hit by strong fighters.

"I am not about to miss the boulder on this man's shoulders.  He is going to be there all night or until I put him to sleep.

"We are going to be eating ice cream in no time.

"This is going to be a fun year for me.  I'm not looking past this fight, but I'm ready to fight whoever.  We're going to take care of business Saturday night.

"To this day, right now, I could literally leave boxing and be like, 'I did more than anybody in my family ever did.'  I could provide for my kids and my family, but I'm not going to settle for that.  I'm trying to be the best boxer to ever lace up a pair of gloves.  That's my goal.

"I have my own legacy.  Everybody has their own legacy.  Who knows?  Maybe I go all the way up to 154 and win a championship.  I know I could do it.

"Put your glasses on because I am going to shine [Saturday night].  Hook, right, goodnight."

Gavin Rees, Former World Champion

"I'm going to knock this [expletive] out Saturday night and I can't wait.

"His attitude stinks man.  He shows fighters no respect, but he hasn't even earned the right to do that.  What has he done?  I've been in the States for five weeks now and American boxing fans don't like him.  They tell me they hope I beat him and shut him up.  I think he acts like a fool for no reason and no one really likes that.

"Who has he fought?  I've seen his fights and half of those guys just stood in front of him letting him dictate the pace of the fight.  I'm not going to let him do that.  This is the first fight that I have trained away from home because I'm going to show him I'm no walk in the park.

"I've never been stopped.  I can take him out in the first round, but I am ready to go into deep water if I have to.  Ether way, I have trained hard and will be ready to dictate the pace of the fight and not let him get away with a lot of what other fighters have let him do.

"I have to watch for his right uppercut which he throws from down low, but he's not the best on his feet either.  Work rate is going to be important."

i used to think canelo was the most over rated boxer today but it seems the crown should go to broner. the guy has done nothing but people put him on the pedestal like some demi-god

[QUOTE=R1DG3Z;13030826]I wouldn't call Rees a bum. He's just a huge underdog with a major size and skill disadvantage. This has more to do with Broner's talent than anything.[/QUOTE] Yes you re right he's not a bum and Broner is a…

I don't see it happening for Rees, does anybody know what the actual odds are?
