Gavin Rees has promised one final star performance as he expects to bring an end to his career in the rematch against Gary Buckland at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff on Saturday night.
The former WBA world light-welterweight champion bows out after 16 years in the paid ranks, and takes on Buckland again after their contender for ‘Fight of the Year’ at the same venue back in February where Buckland edged a win on a split decision.
Rees has insisted that he will leave everything that he has in the ring on the night and is proud of what he has been able to achieve in this career, but concedes that injuries are now taking their toll on him.
Nevertheless, he hopes to bow out in style on what will undoubtedly be an emotional night for the fighter, but he is prepared for an all-action classic clash with Buckland again and wants to end on a winning note in Cardiff.
It is another great night of action for boxing fans, with the likes of Callum Smith, Nathan Cleverly and Lee Selby all appearing on the card although many have identified this encounter as the one to watch if it is anything close to the level of their previous fight.
