Cincinnati’s Adrien Broner will take on United Kingdom’s Gavin Rees on February 16, 2013 at the Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA for the WBC lightweight title on HBO.

This fight, without taking anything from Rees 37-1-1 (KO 18) as a boxer is a pure mismatch. I hate to spell it but this is what it is. Odds maker sees it 80-1 in favor of Broner 25-0 (KO 21).

This match-up has only one aim: to boost the favorite’s stock-file, showcasing superior talent and skills. Although Rees so far, has the best record compared to any opponent that Broner had fought. But aside from experience, Rees has the entire disadvantage.

No need to say more, I pick Broner like anyone does, TKO round 5, any problem? feel free to comment.

Here are the predictions around the web.

Ryan Bivins - Broner TKO 9 Bad left hook
Scott Christ - Broner TKO 4 Bad left hook
Tim Starks – Broner round six and under. The Queensberry-rules. – Broner TKO round 6.
Blair Newman – Broner 8th round TKO.

(Update: As expected Broner put on a spectacular knockout win against Rees after a slow start. Broner retains title.)
