|Maccarinelli & Rees back in 2007.|
Rees can become a two-weight world champ himself this weekend if he beats Broner as the WBC lightweight world title is on the line. However, the chances of this happening are very slim. The 32-year old is a massive underdog and has never shared the ring with someone of Broner's talent before. Despite this, Maccarinelli believes Rees can solve 'The Problem' and even stop him in the late stages of the fight.
"I see Gavin stopping him in the later rounds," Enzo told World Boxing News. "Broner is underestimating Gavin's conditioning, both physically and mentally."
"Gavin is the most mentally tough guy I've ever met and I am certain he will cement himself as a true world beater come Saturday night."
'The Rock' is no joke when it comes to boxing achievements and experience. But it is the young man that stands in front of him that make the odds so heavily stacked against him. The 25-0 loud-mouthed youngster has tons of talent to back his charisma and this is usually extremely intimidating to the opponents he beats up and out-classes. But, like Maccarinelli said, there isn't much that can phase Rees. He may not win the fight, he may not even last the distance, but he will give absolutely 100% for as long as the fight lasts. This match-up may be a little more exciting than some people think.
