Hang on folks, Gavin should be here in a few minutes.
How much are you looking forward to the experience of the boardwalk?
It's a big occasion in my career. Live and in America. I'm going to make a statement on Saturday night.
Broner seems overly confident for this fight....how can you break him?
I'm going to go with my normal tatics. I think a lot of his opponents are scared before the fight even begins. I'm not. I think it will be a war and a great fight.
What is the biggest difference for you between lightweight and light welterweight?
It's a massive difference. I was never really a light welterweight. I feel really strong in the ring. It's the biggest difference, the strength and power.
Adrien likes to run his mouth, what do you think of how much talking he does leading up to a fight?
It's way too much. Disrespectful. There is no need of it. There is no need to speak like that. Shake hands after the fight like it should be done.
How hard is it fighting so far from home?
To be honest, I've been away for 4.5 weeks for a great camp in New York City. Everything has gone perfect. The biggest thing is missing my three girls at home, my girlfriend. The weight's been good. I can't fault it, really.
Are you going to try and outbox Broner, or are you going to come in a look for the knockout?
There will be a bit of boxing. You don't go in looking to knock anybody out. You use your tatics and if it comes, it comes. If I get him on the chin, there will be a knockout for sure.
Being from Wales, do you consider retired champion Joe Calzaghe as a hero in the sport? Have you ever shared a pint with the man?
Yeah, of course. He's a legend back in Wales, if not all over the world. We've had plenty of drinks together. We still talk now and then a little bit.
how much tape did you watch of Broner's fights?
Only a little bit. I think a lot of his opponents have been scared and have walked forward with no punches. He just picked them off. I'm going in with a plan. We're confident in taking the belt off of him.
When did you first believe that you could be a world champion?
I've been world champion before at a weight I wasn't really comfortable with. We rebuilt from the bottom at the new weight. My title is due at any time.
Forget about Broner's belt, after you beat him will you take his brush?
I don't need the brush. He can keep that.
Hi Gavin. Thank you for taking a chance at making Broner eat his words. Do you think Adrien has specific weaknesses that you can exploit, brah?
Yeah, he has plenty. He likes to fight on the back foot. He has plenty of weaknesses. We have a plan we just have to make sure it will work.
Not a favorite, however sure you note yourself, how will you connect to Broner?? his defense is excellent
I wasn't a favorite when I became a world champion. You have to win fights. At the end of the day it's just me and him.
Gavin, it seems Broner is not paying you any respect...what do you think of that?
It's disrespectful. He didn't watch any videos. He likes to act like a big one. He makes himself look like a fool.
Hi Gavin. What is your favorite hobby when the day is done and the heads have rolled?
Just relaxing in the hotel. After you've been training in the morning, relaxing in the afternoon and training again at night. Watching some TV at the end of the day.
Are you upset that some Brits are trashing you on Twitter? We do that all the time with our guys, but you Brits seem to have very strong support for your fighters. Does it hurt you?
No. Some people don't like fighters. You have supporters from all over.
How do you find all this talk about Broner being the future of boxing? has it been a distraction at all?
No, I think it gives me a great goal. When I beat him, I'll be at the top of the tree. After I beat him, I'll be No. 1. Maybe a unification fight. Who knows where it goes.
Hey Rees, you think you would consider working the body on Broner?
Yeah, of course. I throw loads of body shots anyway. You have to look for gaps in his guard. Work the body, try to slow him down and my plan is to take him out.
what round for the KO?
I'm not going to predict a KO. If it comes, it comes. Whichever way the victory comes, I'll be happy.
I don't mean to be disrespectful, but that arrogant fool Adrien Broner has something coming to him. If you beat him, will you continue your career in the US? I reckon you will be a hero.
Hopefully, yes. I hope that this opens a lot of doors. Maybe a unification fight. I'll go anywhere in the world. I am not scared to travel. Whoever my promoter puts in front of me I will fight.
How do you think you'll like fighting in the USA?
The crowd will be on his side, being here in America. But I won a title in Paris and the crowd was against me then. I'm expecting a great environment. In the ring, it's me and him. The crowd won't help him win. I'm happy with the situation.
Tune in Saturday night. We have a great fight lined up. Tune in for an exciting fight.
Thanks for chatting Gavin.
