This Saturday night, join us at Bloody Elbow for live fight night coverage of HBO World Championship Boxing. The night's featured fight pits rising superstar Adrien Broner (25-0, 21 KOs) against Gavin Rees (31-1-1, 18 KOs). HBO World Championship Boxing Broner vs. Rees airs this Saturday night, February 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET. Bloody Elbow will have live fight night coverage, including results and discussion.
The storyline in this fight is simple - just how big of a star is Adrien Broner going to be? With his mix of charisma and talent, he has the potential to be a truly huge figure in boxing. To do so, he likely needs to step out of his current 130 pound division and move up to where more marketable opponents await him. This fight is here to give him another big moment, and to build anticipation for that eventual move. Maybe that means it won't be the most competitive fight you'll see this year, but with Broner in there, it will likely be one of the most entertaining.
