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.

Mayweather Jr Jr by stoppage. This will look like his daddy's fight against Arturo Gatti. An absolute blowout... Mayweather Jr Sr ruined things for Mayweather Jr Jr because we will be much less tolerant of a run that avoids risk this time around. I think fans have grown tired of that. Yes we wanna see Mayweather Jr Jr take on guys like JMM and Tim Bradley, possibly Amir Khan. they are out there and Mayweather Jr Jr will fit in well at 140 and 147. He looks way to big for 135.

Does anyone think Reese has a chance? I mean maybe this could be one of these matches were Broner overlooks Reese for that May 4th date and he loses, like Berto and Ortiz etc. It could happen. What do yawl think? Either way I will be glued in. Broner is a fool and his skills are sharpening by the second.

Maybe I will watch and look for a Buster Douglas shocker! LOL! It was posted that this would be as one-sided as Mayweather-Gatti. However, recall that many people thought with the added weight that Gatti could win. Me included. However, the point is that noone outside of Reese's team thinks he can win. This isn't even like Mayweather-Gatti going in, it's more like Delahoya-Charpentier or Hopkins-Haaker. UGGHHH!

i couldn't believe how many ppl thought gatti had a chance. i tried to tell everyone in the gym but they wouldn't listen. at that time...i wasn't really a gambling man...but i could have cleaned up on that one.
