Broner-Rees round by round

 

The following is a round-by-round account of Adrien Broner vs. Gavin Rees, as tweeted live by THE RING Magazine Editor Michael Rosenthal:

 

ROUND 1

Good round. Rees looked better than expected. Aggressive, landed some shots. We’re just getting started, though.

 

ROUND 2

Rees is still holding his own but Broner is finding the range. The fight is competitive. Surprise, surprise.

 

ROUND 3

Gotta love Rees’ confidence but Broner landed some eye-catching shots. Broner seems to be taking charge

 

ROUND 4

Right uppercut puts Rees on his butt. Seems to be hurt. … Big round for Broner. Put Rees down and landed many more hard, hard shots. Not sure how much longer this’ll last. … Sounds like the trainer wants to stop it.

 

ROUND 5

Rees down again, fight over. … It took Broner a few rounds to get rolling but once he did … whoa. He turned a competitive fight into a wipe out. Good job by Gary Lockett, Rees’ trainer. He knew his fighter faced too much danger and waved off the fight. Official time was 2:59 of Round 5.
