Discuss the Broner-Reese fight here. (Preview and Comment.)

According to Box Rec, Gavin Reese is not a nobody nor total shit. He is the British Lightweight Champion with about 40 fights and 18 KO's He also is a former WBA Super Lightweight Champion. Very strong, very tough, and supposedly game as hell. Here is Gavin's record (from Boxrec:)

http://boxrec.com/list_bouts.php?human_id=...0&cat=boxer

Going around the Net, the consensus is that he is NOT coming to lay down. His only loss was to a very good fighter in the 12th round according to British reports, Andriy Kotelnyk back in 2008. I don't think this guy is coming to pull an Audley Harrison like against Haye or Price! (UGGHHH!) Throughout boxing history, there have been so many UK contenders who fold like accordions when they come over to America to fight top competition. But those who don't fold, have done very well. Where to rank Gavin Reese going into this fight with Adrian Boner, for the WBC Lightweight World Title?

I think Reese could be tougher than expected. However, toughness only. Hopefully, he will show heart and determination Broner has a huge reach advantage, and the Brits say Gavin is slow though determined. He is also been quoted by Broner as "dangerous."

This is a beat-down, stopped on cuts with Broner winning by TKO 8. Reese takes two rounds on courage, tops.

Snooze cards like this, just makes me wish the undercard was something to look forward to...kinda reminds me of how we got Rios/Alvarado for a co-feature, then came that BS Donaire vs Nishioko (sp)

Broner kills me with all of this trash talk, when he's clearly fighting no-hopers. If anything, as AL Haymon fighter, he's making the most of his deal. Most All Haymon fighters, coming up in the game, fight no-hopers for big paydays. Broner is fighting no-hopers for big paydays, and taking full advantage of his air time...cant knock him for that.

Rees may be a force to be reckoned with, who knows? I said this because I reflected on Ismayl Sillakh getting caught with his pants down against Grachev.

There's an outside shot for Reese to be competitive, but he will pay a price for it. Reese at least on paper does nothing better than Broner, and matches like these are often nothing more than for Jim Lamply to bring out the pop-poms for the HBO contracted fighter. Reese will have to KO this guy so he might as well go for broke! He sure as hell isn't winning a decision no matter what!
