This Saturday night, HBO World Championship Boxing presents Adrien Broner (25-0, 21 KOs) vs. Gavin Rees (31-1-1, 18 KOs). Broner vs. Rees is live on HBO this Saturday, February 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET.
To get ready for Broner vs. Rees, check out HBO's excellent 2 Days series profiling Adrien "The Problem" Broner. This edition follows him in the lead-up to his most recent fight - a November 2011 showdown with Antonio DeMarco. What makes Broner a fascinating figure is not merely his superb in-ring skills, but also the larger than life personality which he presents both inside and outside of the ring. This video does a fantastic job displaying both of those sides of Adrien Broner, and is a must watch in the lead-up to Saturday.
For more on Adrien Broner, also check out this previous episode of 2 Days, which focused on his 2012 fights with Eloy Perez and Vicente Escobedo. The two videos take somewhat different stances on Broner, and both are worth a look in order to get the full scope of this unique fighter.
