Mike Reed “A year from now I would like to fight for a world title.”
Boxing’s alleged best fighter, Floyd Mayweather is set to retire from the sport tonight as he takes on Andre Berto is what is his dubbed last fight ever. Like the saying goes, out with the old and in with the new, we have some pretty exciting prospects making tremendous noise in the sport right now. Guys like Errol Spence Jr, Oscar Valdez, Jesse Hart and so on. All who looked spectacular this weekend in their wins.
Another name who cannot be left out is Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed. The fighter who is a native of Maryland is also coming off a luxurious win this weekend, stopping Antonio Canas in the 5th round of their scheduled 8 round fight. Reed, who is a Jr welterweight is rising up in the ranks and doing what he does best to make sure his name makes a statement.
Inside The Ropes’ own, Lucas Ketelle caught up with Reed after his win to talk a bit more on the fights result.
“The knockout came off of a short left uppercut, straight to the body. When I got it [knockout] I actually wasn’t looking for it, I just knew it was going to be there.”
One of the things we noticed was the presence of Reed’s mother, who, of course, was ecstatic to see her son win. Reed talks about the support he receives from his friends and family, who made the trip to Vegas to see him on a huge boxing weekend. “A lot of my family probably came down, about 25 deep from D.C, on Floyd Mayweather’s weekend. That’s a lot of money that they spent out, just to come and support me, just to say you know, I came to support my family and I love that.”
With a solid record of 16 wins and 9 knockouts now, Reed is on the verge of big things. Top Rank has been handling him very well and he wants to finish the year strong and prepare himself for every boxers dream come next year.
“A year from now I want to be 20-0, honestly speaking I would like to compete for a world title or be a number, 1 contender.”
