On Saturday night, December 10, 2016, twenty-three year-old Top Rank® light welterweight professional boxer, Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed (Washington, D.C. by way of Waldorf, Maryland/pro record: 20-0-0, 12 KOs) will face Sidney Siqueira (Sao Paulo, Brazil/pro record: 26-11-1, 17 KOs) in an 8-round fight on the HBO World Championship Boxing® card, held at CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska.
The event is promoted by Top Rank, in association with TGB Promotions, and will feature Terence Crawford making a defense of his WBC and WBO World Super Lightweight Titles against John Molina Jr. in the main event. On October 14, Reed earned his twentieth win, when he defeated Aaron Herrera by 6th Round TKO at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Reed said, “The last time I fought in Omaha, I earned my 12th pro victory. During that week, I had a great time spending my Thanksgiving there, and really enjoyed performing in front of a capacity crowd at CenturyLink Center. This time around, I’ll be returning to Omaha as a much more experienced boxer. I’m more confident of myself in the ring and I don’t question my father’s directives as I had done occasionally in the past. When he makes a call from the corner now, he gets it. My ring generalship has definitely improved and by fight time on December 10, I will be prepared to earn another win. I didn’t take too many days off after my last fight, and everything has been going well in camp so far.
Top Rank continues to do an excellent job in building me to become a world champion. My opponent for this upcoming fight has a good record, but all I see is another test for me, and an opportunity to continue learning. For those who haven’t seen me live, this is a chance for you all to come out and see me work. I plan to show everyone in Omaha why I’m one of the best prospects at 140 lbs. I’d like to put myself in position to get a title shot by the end of the year. Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed is an exciting TV-friendly fighter, with great boxing ability, and power in both hands. I’ve had a great 2016 so far, going 3-0, with 2 KOs. Look for me to have a great performance on December 10, impress Top Rank and the HBO Boxing team, and then ride that momentum into 2017. Yes Indeed!”
