Mike Reed went undefeated in his first year as a professional fighter and is looking to improve his all-around game in 2014. Reed is a 20 year old that went 6-0, 4 KO’s last year. He is fighting on a Keystone Boxing and Top Flight Productions fight card on January 17 and the famed Rosecroft Raceway in Maryland. Reed trains at the Dream Team Boxing gym in Clinton, Maryland and is trained by Michael Pinson. “2013 was a good year, as we were able to get 6 bouts to build from. So far, Mike’s fights have all been great learning experiences. Several opponents were tough and came to win. I didn't want easy fights in his first year as a pro, because you can’t learn from those. Transitioning from an amateur to a professional boxer can be very difficult. Mike handled it well", said Pinson.
Reed, who attends college between training and fights, says, “Last year, I did a great job of dictating the pace in my fights and thought I showed good ring generalship. My training and conditioning allowed me to perform well in my fights, so I definitely want to keep that going. I’m happy that I stayed busy in my first year as a pro. Thank you to both Keystone Boxing and Top Flight Productions for letting me showcase my talents on their boxing cards in 2013. I am working hard to build a solid fan base, and very thankful for the way my supporters have come out to watch me fight.”
Reed will take on Jorge Marquez from Phoenix Az., with a pro record of 4-1, 2 KO’s in a 6 round main event on January 17 at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, Md. Reed is unsigned with a primary promoter at this time. Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed is comfortable at 135 or 140 lbs and says, “My team will make the right decision on that issue when the time is right”.
