Gavin 'The Rock' Rees has been training in public today ahead of his European lightweight title defence against Frenchman Anthony Mezaache in Paris later this month.

It is the second defence of the title that Rees won against Andy Murray in Cardiff last year. His first defence ended in a draw in Newport after challenger Derry Mathews broke his nose in the fourth round.

The 31 year-old hopes to get back into World title contention after taking on new trainer Gary Lockett, and hopes that a successful defence will take him a step closer.
