This Saturday night, February 16, HBO World Championship Boxing returns as superstar in the making Adrien Broner (25-0, 21 KOs) takes on Gavin Rees (31-1-1, 18 KOs). Broner vs. Rees airs live on HBO Saturday night at 10:30 p.m. ET.
The pre-fight hype for this show is entirely focused on Broner, and for good reason. The charismatic, talented young fighter is on the verge of something big. Saturday night is another chance to see just what the future has in store for Broner, and to see if he is indeed the future of boxing.
For more background on Broner, check out this video from HBO of Broner's Greatest Hits. While it may seem strange to look at the greatest hits of such a young fighter, in Broner's case, it's definitely deserved.
