Adrien Broner, the supposedly brash and careless but actually cheerful and confident lightweight champ, dispatched Gavin Rees last night in Atlantic City to improve his undefeated record to 26-0. It wasn't the cakewalk some were expecting, though it would eventually come to an end by TKO in the fifth round after the Welshman lost his ability to defend himself.


Rees's nickname is "The Rock," and Broner's most lethal punch of the night—this fourth-round knockdown—sank Rees like one. To his credit, Rees got back up; the match didn't last much longer, though, and Broner's uppercut is an example of why Hamilton said in November that the Cincinnatian is unbeatable.
