Rees confident of shock win
Gavin Rees believes he has the ability and tactics to shock Adrien Broner after the pair met for the first time ahead of Saturday's fight.
Broner will defend his WBC lightweight title in Atlantic City with Welshman Rees being a massive underdog to bring the belt back to the UK.
The brash American has compiled an impressive 25-0 record, with 21 of those wins coming inside the distance.
He has been touted as the next Floyd Mayweather but Rees, who briefly held a world title at light-welterweight five years ago, thinks he has the tools to expose some chinks in the armour.
"He's got all the mouth let's see if he can back it up," said Rees. "It's just a normal fight to me to be honest, it's just a ring.
"I've been over to Paris and won so fighting away from home doesn't bother me in the slightest.
"He's pretty cocky and I think he underestimates me. The game plan we've got is right and I'm confident in my own ability, he expects me to just come running in head first but he'll have a shock on the night, a lot of people will."
