Fans always talk about the importance of winning on the road in team sports. This Saturday, Jr. Welterweight contender, Mike Reed will get his first professional test on the road at Bally's Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Reed has fought all of his pro fights within 10 miles of his house. He knows the referees and most of the judges and the promoters. This time he will have a set of judges that will probably be seeing Reed for the first time. Reed has plenty of experience on the road as an amateur and he will take that on the road this weekend. "I had hardly no amateur fights in my home town. All of the big tournaments have been many miles from the DMV. This will not bother me at all", says Reed.
Reed's opponent will be Alberto Morales, 25, from Nicaragua and fights out of Miami, Florida. He started his pro career with 11 straight wins, but has lost his last 3 fights, with one draw. He was knocked out in his last fight back in September of 2013.
For some reason, Mike Reed has had opponents overlook him. He is short in stature, but is built like a running back. With his amateur credentials, fighters should be hard pressed to over look the southpaw fighter that works the body like not many fighters with his early pro record. "I have had fighters call me out on social media as if I am going to be an easy fight. One even predicted he would get his first knock out against me," recalls Reed. It will be interesting to see how the always confident Mike Reed will do when he takes his game on the road for the first time as a pro.
