Wales' Marshman can be UFC champ - Rees

Former WBA world light welterweight champion Gavin Rees, who headlined a show in the US, believes Jack Marshman will one day be fighting for the top UFC title in Las Vegas.

Marshman's second fight in the UFC is against Brazil's Thiago Santos at UFC Halifax on 19 February.

Rees - who retired from boxing in 2014 - has been helping train Marshman for the last two years.

He believes the Abertillery middleweight has what it takes to reach the very top of the UFC.
