ALL eyes will be on Kell Brook a week tomorrow...all that is apart from those of Wayne Reed.
The Central Area super-middleweight champion will be watchng the British title Kenny Anderson v Robin Reid match-up on the undercard at Sheffield Arena and is hell-bent on a rematch with the winner.
Reed, 25, was beaten by Anderson in April and by former WBC world champion Reid last year. Reed didn’t give the best account of himself in those fights but now that the Parson Cross southpaw is Central Area champion he claims to be in a better position to challenge for the Lonsdale belt.
Reed said: “I was an immature fighter when I fought Robin, although I nearly dropped him with my first punch. Now I’ve got more maturity and experience I know that I’ve got the beating of him. Kenny was coming off a 13 week training camp for a fight with George Groves and I stepped in at two weeks notice. Glyn Rhodes pulled me out after the third round because there was nothing left in the tank. I wasn’t fit. I’m still the only one to have put him on his backside.”
Reed will fight in a British Masters title fight at iceSheffield on November 9.
