Mike "Yes Indeed" Reed Travels To Omaha Nebraska!


Reed defeated Osnel Charles on October 4 at Bally's in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and will return to the ring November 29 at Century Link Center in Omaha, Nebraska (HBO undercard).

WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S.A. – On Saturday night, October 4, 2014, light welterweight professional boxer, Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed (Waldorf, MD/Washington, D.C.) defeated Osnel Charles (Atlantic City, NJ) by unanimous decision. The three judges seated ringside at Bally’s Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, scored the six-round bout 59-53, 60-52, and 60-52. Reed dropped Charles in round two, and later in the fight, the referee deducted a point from Charles for repeatedly spitting out his mouthpiece. Reed’s record is now 11-0, with 6 KOs. Charles, a last minute opponent replacement, saw his record drop to 10-11-1, 1 KO. 

      The twenty-one year old prospect talked about his recent win. He said, “I was happy to get the win in Atlantic City and see so many fans come out to support me and my team. As far as my performance goes, I thought I performed well, but there’s always room for improvement. My opponent Charles was a crafty veteran, and he had tricks that helped him survive in the ring. I always learn from my fights, and I plan to build on those things in my upcoming training camp. I showed Top Rank that they made the right decision to sign me. I have a good support team and I will continue to show that I have the tools to become a world champion.”

     Michael “Buck” Pinson, Reed’s father, trainer, and manager (Dream Team Boxing Gym/Clinton, MD), agreed with his Reed’s assessment. “Michael’s conditioning looked good in the fight, but we will go back to the gym and keep working to get better. Overall, I thought Mike’s Top Rank debut went well, and the representatives on hand seemed to enjoy his performance. Thank you to all the Team Reed supporters that came up for the fight. All of you were loud at the fight, and that made us feel like we were fighting at home.”

      During his October fight, Reed wore a pink and white uniform to honor victims and survivors of breast cancer. He said, “The outfit I wore in the ring was to raise breast cancer awareness, as a tribute to everyone who has dealt with breast cancer. Two very important women in my life were diagnosed with it. Fortunately, they both survived, but there are plenty of women who weren’t as fortunate. I’ll continue to show support, and eventually someone will find a cure for cancer. Thank you Nike Boxing/Athlete Performance Solutions (Machomai Boots), Nike Elite (Kay Yow socks), Ross Molovinsky and Team Reed for helping put together my outfit for this fight.”

     Mike Reed is scheduled to return to the ring on Thanksgiving weekend, Saturday, November 29, in an eight-round bout at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Reed’s fight will be featured on the HBO undercard of the WBO lightweight title fight between Terence Crawford and Ray Beltran. Reed’s opponent will be announced shortly.

     Reed said, “November 29 will be a big night for Team Reed. Terence Crawford has always been a favorite boxer of mine, so it's a real honor to fight on his undercard. I’m told that the CenturyLink Center in Omaha is going to be packed with boxing fans, so this is a great opportunity for me to expand my fan base on a terrific HBO undercard. Team Reed is looking forward to traveling out to Omaha. We plan to impress everyone in attendance and earn television time.”

Recap Of Jeter & RBA Promotions Fight Card In Springfield!

In the main event at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA Yurii Polischuk captured a six-round unanimous decision over Benjamin Olinga to win the Virginia State Junior Welterweight title.  Benjamin Olinga is a durable fighter that was just out boxed by Polischuk.  The judges scored the bout 60-54, and 59-55 twice.

 Polischuk is now 6-1-1, two KO's.  Olinga is now 1-9.

Gerome Quigley won his bout at 2:57 of the first round over Cedric Coney. Most of that time was spent chasing his opponent down. Quigley was able to cut the ring off and land some hard right hands to put a end to the bout.

Quigley is now 5-0, four KO's.  Coney is 3-2.

Mike Sawyer gets a first round stoppage over Nathan Chambers. Chambers tried to be aggressive at the start of the bout, but did not have the boxing techniques to get the job done. On the other hand Sawyer had the power to land hard shots to send Chambers to the canvas twice. Referee put a stop to the bout at 1:07.

Sawyer is now 6-3, three KO's.  Chambers is 0-2.

Edwin Reyes wanted to get in the rounds in his bout with Tyron Stewart. The first round looked to be confusing as Reyes did not take advantage of the lack boxing skills of Stewart. Edwin Reyes entered the second round totally different. Reyes came out punching and landed a solid right hook that stopped Tyron Stewart at 40 seconds of the second round.

Reyes remains undefeated at 5-0, four KO's.  Stewart is now 3-3.

Jonathon Cepeda and Lester Gonzalez fought in a well matched bout. Cepeda scored a fifth round TKO over Gonzalez at 1:57. Late in the forth round Cepeda dropped Gonzalez. After Cepeda sent Gonzalez to the canvas he came out in round five and land a hard left hook that staggered Gonzalez , making him fall to the canvas once again. this time he could not recover.

Cepeda is now 15-1, 13 KO's while Gonzalez is 12-15-4, six KO's.

Mario Flores earned his way to the top of the list as maybe getting the Beltway Boxing Knockout Of The Year Award for 2014.  Flores was facing Christian Pittman in a four round contest. The right hand of Flores was the key to the fight. Flores used that right hand to drop Pittman three times in the bout. This is the reason Flores got his name added to the top of the list as being KO of the years. Flores sent Pittman down for two eight counts, but after that second eight count was over the referee gave the fighters the ok to continue, Flores threw one punch, and that same right hand send Pittman flying to the canvas and almost outside of the ring. This wasn't a TKO. It was a pure KNOCKOUT. The bout came to an immediate stop at 1:51 in the first.

Flores is now 5-1-2, four KO's.  Pittman drops to 3-5.

The second bout of the evening was the 6'7" 250 lb Stan Williams facing the maybe 5'10" and questionable 201 lb Jawon Love. I say questionable because Love looked as if he was maybe 160, 175 lbs. The bout started off with Love circling the ring. It seemed normal at the beginning of the bout. As the first round continued it was apparent that Love was running to survive. Williams threw and couple of punches and even landed one or two. Round two began where it ended. Love started running again. This time the running started to show, and Love was so exhausted that he had to give himself a break by taking a knee. The referee gave Love the first eight count. Then Love started back again. Running around the ring until he had to take another eight count, but this time he was just totally spent. Love ran himself into the TKO wall. The few punches that Williams landed along with the running Love did the referee gave him his final count to end the contest at 1:20 in round two.

Williamson is now 3-0, three KO's.

The first bout of the night started with Tevin Farmer in a scheduled eight round contest against Dominic Coca. Farmer stops Coca at 1:41 in round one.

Farmer is now 17-4, three KO's while Coca is 8-10, two KO's.

Overall it was another entertaining night of boxing hosted by Jeter and RBA Promotions. It was a great turnout for the size of the venue. The fights turned out as expected. The next show for Jeter and RBA promotions will be December 6, 2014 at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA. Jeter And RBA promotion said they already have 7-8 cards planned for 2015. ProAmFightTalk and BoxingAlongTheBeltway will keep you posted on those 2015 dates.
