Who cares whats this BS about “class” anyway this is NOT an equestrian sport, Broner is trying to create a character to sell… These bland, boring fighters are not making any waves and half of them can’t fight anyway… The ONLY thing that matters is how Broner performs when the bell rings, as long as he is NOT banging your daughter who cares how he carries himself… People want everyone to follow their version of “socially acceptable” as long as no laws are broken let the kid do his thing.

Thanks b fan, well not that far off, that is a impressive record. Doesnt leave it in the judges hands often. Ive noticed hes really good at finishing guys.when he knows theyre hurt. He throws great combos, mixes in body punches , and is always faster than his opponent. Like I said, Im just hoping its competitive

Broner is only 23 and has 21 KO’s in 25 fights. That is pretty impressive. Rees will be a new number in his resume, nothing more.

whiteboyday

not quite sure but I think he has like 24 wins and 20 by ko somethin like that but if im close that doesnt sound like the record of a purely defensive minded fighter

SREDMOND

I swear some of you are soooo dumb its mind blowing… How is Broner a safety first fighter when had stopped all but 4 or 5 of his opponents???? His KO percentage had to be in the 80′s, whats the problem he is not letting slower fighters hit him like he is hitting them?? Reality is some of you are terrified that Broner is the 2nd coming of Mayweather and he is going to dominate and make this look easy for years… Sheesh

Broner definitly is a defensive fighter and looks like Floyd but he does throwdown a little and shows he can bang when he wants to. Thats why his ko percentage is so much higher than Floyds. Most the time when the fights over his opponent is sleepin, so theres a good chance we are not gonna have to worry about our corrupt yank judges. That was sarcastic btw . Until you get back in touch with reality Traveller please stop wastin our time with your bs

Hey Chicago Guy,

Newsflash: Boxing is about hitting, and not getting hit — something both Broner and Floyd are extremely good at.

Posted February 10, 2013 2:55 pm 


Chicago guy

Broner is a defensive fighter that will not engage to a real slugfest.Defensive fighter intention is just to earn points which turns to a very boring fight. Broner is a boring fighter but Happygirl loves him. Happygirl likes boring fighter like his idol Floyd jr.

Upset is possible if Rees will be faster to chase overhyped Broner because once Broner taste the power of Rees he will just backing off and run. Chicago guy

In Vino Veritas

The reason for this fight is simple…the total decline in US domestic boxing. You only have to look at the USA team’s embarrassing performance at the Olympics to see that there’s nothing coming through. Whilst the rest of the world has moved on, many US fight fans still live in the 70′s & 80′s, believing that it’s still the be all and end all. There’s money to be made elsewhere these days so why bother jumping through hoops for the US market. In 10 years time the only decent fighters in the US will be Mexican/Latino!

Christov, he fought the TOP guy at 135 so you are asking a question that does not fly… If Broner is going to stay at 135 then he is going to grave to fight guys like Burns and Rees because HE is now the top 135 pounder in the world… When Shane Mosley was at 135 he stayed at the weight and racked up defenses for a bit, I think 8… Broner has had ONE fight at the weight and it was the best guy around, yet you’re complaining?? Demarco was seen as superior to the rest do how can Broners opposition be called into question at 135??

Posted February 10, 2013 8:55 am 


christov

Why is everyone so worked up about this fight? The facts are this: Broner LOOKS like a special talent,how special we don’t really know just yet, but he’s facing Gavin Rees,who, while a tough and determined good little fighter, who will come and give it all he’s got, is probably a level or two below what Broner should be testing himself against.So the question we should be asking, is not who’s winning this fight or how long Rees will hold ip, but WHY is Broner not being matched against an opponent who’ll really test him.

Traveller..

They were framed and extorted so thoroughly that they were forced to “admit” it. Sources say that the scum that set them up were funded by butthurt yank boxing officials. LMAO.

Oh, you mean the “stories” they themselves admitted to?

Meant ‘Ricky’, not Rocky… lol, Rocky is a yank hype-job and terrible actor.

Posted February 10, 2013 12:52 am 


Traveller..

Joe and Rocky are both ATGs, have never failed a drugs test, and the stories of them partying with non-performance drugs are nothing but vile slander. Both are fine British warriours that box circles around any doped-up hype-job yank in their prime.

Yes, tell me about the life of Joe Calzagne. Isn’t he not one of those model citizens/European boxers you speak of? Or Ricky Hatton? Yep, the Europeans can sure lecture the Americans about how to lead a clean life.

Posted February 9, 2013 10:49 pm 


SREDMOND

Broner was new to the weight and like it or not Demarco was Champion, he blew him out like a light and the reality is the win was VERY impressive for a young fighter coming up… Demarco was supposed to a least test Broner, instead he got hit with EVERY punch known to man… Virtuoso!!!!

So what you’re saying is ALL European fighters are dipped and coated with integrity…? And ALL American fighters are dishonest cheaters…? Love those mass-generalizations of yours! Sounds like you’re already looking for excuses as to why Rees is going to suffer a horrific beat-down at the hands of Broner.

@ Traveller 1. What proof is there that Broner is on any sort of drugs? Or are you admitting Broner is so damn good he MUST be on drugs? 2. Broner won’t need the help of any officials to beat Rees, so that remake of yours is mote. 3. If you call Broner “hype”, you have no credibility as a boxing fan.

never underestimate the predictability of stupidity. Such a tough guy. i would actually pay for the plane ticket just to see the Traveller come to Vegas and talk like he is here. What a show that would be. He’s the tough guy on the comp keyboard, and no yank is safe! Im just mad I wasted my life tryin to talk a little boxin with him.Anyway I really hope Rees gives Broner a hard fight, Broner needs to go through some hard fights. Good for his development

This is easy pickings for broner been seeing reese fights and well I just dont I just don’t see how he can win tko within 8 rounds broner

Posted February 9, 2013 5:58 pm 


Patrick2

@ Traveller. It’s understandable you’re supporting your country’s fighter, but it’s a blind allegiance. Rees has nothing in his skill set that is going to cause Broner problems. Broner is simply too well-schooled and too athletic for him. Not to say that Rees isn’t a good fighter, it’s just that he’s not on Broner’s level, and nowhere near it.

@ F.A. Seems you just don’t like Broner, and it’s clouding your judgement. Too bad. Because it’s soon going to become [painfully] apparent to you that Broner IS boxing’s newest superstar.

LOL at fans talking up Broner’s win over DeMarco like he’s some killer. For some reason these people weren’t hyping up Edwin Valero when he KOed the undefeated version of DeMarco in 2010. Wonder why.

Posted February 9, 2013 4:04 pm 


Fight Aficionado

Wait a minute. Rees is hoping to win instead of resigning himself to a beatdown? Cool story. But it’s a KO loss.

Posted February 9, 2013 4:00 pm 


Patrick2

Oh, and please make note that Broner will be sporting a 7-inch reach advantage. Think Rees is getting inside that Broner jab without eating leather, not to mention when he does get inside he won’t get out-worked by Broner’s faster and more powerful hands? Answer: I think not. Rees is going to look like he got hit by a bus after this one.

Posted February 9, 2013 2:19 pm 


Patrick2

Rees with that hands-down-by-his-waist style is going to schooled by Broner. Broner taking full advantage, will be tattooing him with jabs and straight right hands. Rees is way too open and too slow. It’s going to be ugly with Rees busted up and bleeding before the middle rounds and it will end via highlight-reel KO by Broner. Bank on it!

Posted February 9, 2013 2:09 pm 


Patrick2

@ Traveller — Seems you don’t judge boxing ability, and only judge fighters by their personality. It has NOTHING to do with being a “Yank”, it’s simply that Broner is remarkably talented (not hard to see) and he’s in his absolute prime. In this one, Broner gets it done and won’t need any help from the judges — Rees won’t make it into the late rounds without being severely punished.

Rees is a solid fighter with some decent body punches, but bronner wins by decision.

Posted February 9, 2013 10:54 am 


Hidalgo

You’re right, Colin. DeMarco defended his title twice. He fought for and won a vacant title, then defended it twice before meeting Broner. Somehow I got his silver belt mixed up in there as well.

Posted February 9, 2013 5:34 am 


SREDMOND

Lmao, I hope you are around when Broner waxes this guy, no ones gonna care about the excuses you are raining when Rees gets stopped inside the distance.. This whole Nationalistic rant is a smokescreen for the frustration you are feeling and the anxiety about Rees impending loss..

Posted February 9, 2013 4:46 am 


SREDMOND

Rees heart is to no avail Broner is gonna break him in half, he is gonna look like he is quicksand against the faster and more skilled Broner… Preloading excuses is not gonna matter, Rees will be forgotten the minute Broner blows him out and that’s just a fact…

Posted February 9, 2013 4:39 am 


SREDMOND

GTFOH, the German Olympic team damn near pioneered and systematically implemented PED usage DECADES AGO… One of the current HW Champs was kicked off the Ukranian Olympic Team by his own admission for testing positive for PED usage (1996) .(Vitali Klitschko)… Performance enhancing drugs are NOT exclusive to any one country, and what does this have to do with the beating that Broner is going to lay on Rees??? One guy is a fighter(Rees) the other has unlimited upside that’s not gonna be derailed by Rees..Are European fighters doing Olympic testing year round??? Hell no!! So the truth is standards are similar in Europe as well…

Posted February 9, 2013 4:27 am 


Colin

Actually DeMarco defended his belt twice, he won it against Linares who was schooling him early on and ran out of gas and got stopped because of his cuts, then he defended it against some no-mark in Mexico and against John Molina JR who’s rubbish and got a premature stoppage, he then got picked apart by Broner, which was an easy fight for Broner, Rees is underrated and will give Broner a run for his money, I see a points decision win for Broner because he’s improved since PDL and other such fights, but it won;t be easy.

yankboyday – I’m a laid back lad actually, no anger at all and I’m only posting honest observations. There are VERY few yank ‘boxers’ that are even journeymen level compared to European warriours and other regions. Even the so-called ‘greats’ of the past are horribly overhyped and 99% of them also did the best drugs available in those days. Screw yankeeville and their doped up bums with their corrupt officials.

@whiteboyday – I’m revoking your Irishness, you’re certifiable filthy yank scum for rooting for hype-job, doped-up bum Broner.

@bumz – If you’ve been ‘impressed’ by his fighting then you’re a delusional ignoramus plus a pathetic sympathiser. And USA is far and away the worst country concerning all aspects of corruption. Germany looks fair and sensible when compared to yankeeville, FACT. The King Klitschkos are honest, hardworking Euro warriours and both are top five ATGs. Quit talking rubbish.

Posted February 8, 2013 10:01 pm 


Traveller

@SREDMOND – You vacated reality long ago it seems. DeMarco would’ve handily won had it not been for the drugs Broner had pumping through his veins and the terribly biased refereeing. Wake up.

@Patrick2 – Rees will easily weather the drug-fuelled flailing of Broner and the biased refereeing and get robbed by the yank judges. Hype-job Broner isn’t picking anything apart besides his horrible ghetto talk.

Posted February 8, 2013 10:01 pm 


Patrick2

At this point in time, Broner is just too good for anyone at/near 135 pounds. Look for him pick Rees apart, then him beat down. This one will end early.

Posted February 8, 2013 9:29 pm

he looks real damn ignorant havin his hair brushed in the ring, oh yeah and when he talks

Posted February 8, 2013 9:24 pm 


SREDMOND

This is the problem with ESB you have guys who totally vacate reality in order to get attention… That was an epic beating Broner put on Demarco and saying Antonio had more than a millisecond of success is blasphemy, to be honest he did not belong in the ring with Broner…

Posted February 8, 2013 9:22 pm 


bumz

Traveller@ lol, I don’t sympathize anyone and I don’t like Broner’s annoying ghetto-style and talking mouth open when chewing a gum etc. but I have recently watched his fights in youtube and in boxing he’s impressive. Besides Germany is even worse than USA in corrupt judging…and who knows what the Klitschkos are taking.

Damn I was about to talk a little crap to ya Traveller, thought you were Brit talkin so much noice bout US but I was born in Dublin, brought to Las Vegas pretty young so, nevermind. But Broner is gonna whup that ass though

Posted February 8, 2013 9:02 pm

Those drugs won’t help Broner get a T/KO, not when Rees has an iron chin and strong British heart. It’ll go to the yank-paid yank judges, no doubt!

whiteboyday – I’m Irish/Scot and currently living in Germany. Mate, Rees will put up much more than a good fight IF Broner wasn’t doped up and the judges paid off. Yet another yank robbery it’ll be.

Posted February 8, 2013 8:29 pm 


whiteboyday

Broners got this, just hopin Rees can put up a fight a bit. Traveler where u from in Europe?

Posted February 8, 2013 8:19 pm 


Traveller

@Hidalgo – DeMarco is a Mexican warriour who was taking it to Boner before the TKO, which ONLY happened because they gave the hype-job yank a much bigger dose of his yank-made drugs which of course pass the yank-made tests. If it was a fair fight (i.e. no drugs surging through Broner’s veins, and non-currupt judges) DeMarco would’ve dominated and won by brutal KO by the mid rounds. FACT.

Posted February 8, 2013 6:11 pm 


Hidalgo

Traveler, DeMarco was no “yank hype-job.” Broner dismantled and TKOd him with style and precision. DeMarco defended his title five times winning four of those bouts by stoppage. Then he met Broner. Rees may be tough and skillful, but Broner is no hype job–he proved that with an impressive stoppage of DeMarco. Rees is going down, being stopped by TKO, most likely. You’ll just have to get used to it. Broner doesn’t need a good ref to beat Rees. Rees, on the other hand, will need a very, very good cutman.

Posted February 8, 2013 5:48 pm 


Hidalgo

“Hopefully SREDMOND dies before the fight” LMAO!

Posted February 8, 2013 5:44 pm 


whiteboyday

Its doubtful but I would really like to see how” the problem” handles adversity in a fight like a cut or even just takin a coupled heravy shots and havin to workhis way out of bein dazed. He does seem to mimic alot of what Floyd does but I like the fact that he goes for ko’s when they are available and he doesnt mind occasionally brawlin a tiny bit. Brings the chance of a more exciting fight than Floyd, with his defense not on Floyds level, but could be in time.
