Glen Tapia, Mike Reed Returning 10/4 in Atlantic City

by David P. Greisman

Junior-welterweight prospect Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed will have his 11th pro fight when he steps into the ring on Oct. 4 in Atlantic City, according to Lorin Chvotkin, a spokesman for Reed.

It will apparently be part of a Top Rank card featuring New Jersey junior middleweight Glen Tapia, who posted on Facebook that the event will be held at the Bally’s hotel and casino.

“Time to get back in shape,” Tapia wrote. “My last fight was CRAZY packed! This one is gonna be even bigger!”

Tapia headlined at the same casino in June on a card that was essentially Reed’s tryout for Top Rank. The 21-year-old from the Washington, D.C., suburb of Waldorf, Maryland, signed with the promoter soon afterward.

Reed is 10-0 with 6 knockouts. His opponent has not yet been announced.

Tapia was supposed to appear on the July 26 card at Madison Square Garden featuring Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Geale. He ended up being pulled from that show due to an issue with his blood test.

Tapia spoke to BoxingScene.com about the blood test shortly after learning he was off the card:

The 24-year-old is 21-1 with 13 KOs, with the lone loss coming via sixth-round stoppage against James Kirkland last December.

I hope Tapia has worked on his cardio/breathing. He's exciting.
