Kenny Anderson Punishes, Stops a Game Robin Reid

By Alexey Sukachev

Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield, Yorkshire -  At 41 years and 8 months of age, former WBC super middleweight champion Robin Reid had a slim chance to become the oldest ever owner of the oldest and maybe the most honourable national title, the Lonsdale belt. Reid did what he could but he was unable to stop Scottsman Kenny Anderson (18-1, 13 KOs), who demolished the veteran in five hard-fought rounds.

The start of the fight saw Robin Reid of the Old to come out. Reid, who came back from his retirement the last year, mixed painful body punches with clinches in the first round. He added tackles, low blows and rabbit punches to turn the bout into a purist's nightmare... and into his trademark foulfest as well. Anderson continued to be frustrated in the second stanza, when Reid added a crisp jab to keep Anderson at bay. Low blows continued into the third, and referee Ian John-Lewis warned Reid two times for going well to the south of the border. However, Reid was simply a better fighter than Anderson, 29, who refused to touch gloves with Reid after another foul. The fourth round was fought in the same pattern.

It wasn't until the fifth, when Anderson (who was down on the BoxingScene's card at the time - 36-40) started to do damage. But when he started, Reid felt it very well. However, he was first deducted a point by the referee for his fourth low blow in the contest. A nightmare continued immediately after that, when Reid was hurt with a couple of Anderson's uppercuts and took a knee to be counted a knockdown. Anderson smelt blood and went right after the veteran and started to land his hooks at will. Ian John-Lewis stepped in and halted the action at 2:45 of the fifth to a mild protest from wobbly Reid. For him, now 42-8-1, 29 KOs, it could very well be the end of the road. Anderson is now the BBBofC British super middleweight champion.

Anderson is a strong, tough man who comes to fight and likes to fight. A match between him and Paul Smith would be entertaining, and maybe brutal, and that may well be up next but even if Kenny were to…

Glad that people clarified that it wasn't a one sided punishment, thought I was losing it for a second there. I find Reid's eyebrows very unnerving.

I wouldn't say he "demolished" Reid at all. Robin was winning until he got tired and caught with a good uppercut, them never really recovered.
