Danger For Rees

Joint favourite Gavin Rees has been handed a tough draw by Floyd Mayweather Jnr in Prizegighter Light-Welterweights.

 

The former WBE champion will face 'Dangerous' Ted Bami in the quarter-finals of the last-man-standing, £32,000-winner-takes-all tournament at Olympia on Friday, December 4.

 

Bami, a former European champion himself and a losing finalist in the Prizefighter at 147lbs, and Rees 11/4 joint favurite with Sky Bet, will face off in arguably the pick of the draw, made by none other than Money Mayweather himself.

 

The other eye-catching quarter-final clash pits current British champion David Barnes against another former European king, Colin Lynes.

 

Young Muttley is likely to be happiest with the draw as he has avoided the big names first up and has been put in with late call-up Barrie Jones of Wales. But he will face the winner of Lynes-Barnes should he make it to the last four.

 

The other quarter-final bout sees Jason Cook, a former European lightweight champion in the second stage of his career, come up against the unbeaten Michael Grant.

I went to the lightweight PF in Glasgow at the Kelvinhall. Was a good nights boxing.

 

I'm also surprised that the prize is only 32k especially with boxers like rees having won a WBA title. I wonder what his purse was for that fight and his defence against kotelnik
