All nine of junior-welterweight prospect Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed’s pro fights have come in front of a hometown crowd. He’ll be traveling away from Maryland and Washington, D.C., for his 10th, fighting June 14 in Atlantic City on a Top Rank card that will also feature Glen Tapia, Jesse Hart and Toka Kahn-Clary in separate matches.

Reed is scheduled to face Alberto Morales in a six-round bout at Bally’s Atlantic City, according to Lorin Chvotkin, a spokesman for Reed. Though it is a Top Rank show, Reed remains a free agent, Chvotkin said.

Reed was 90-13 as an amateur, and his accomplishments in those unpaid ranks included wins at the National Golden Gloves in 2005, at the National Ringside World Championships in 2005 and 2007, at the Junior Olympic Nationals in 2009, and at the National Golden Gloves in 2011.

The 21-year-old turned pro in March 2013 and is 9-0 with 6 knockouts. His last win came in April with a fourth-round stoppage of a 6-4 opponent named Regino Canales.

Reed’s upcoming foe, Morales, is 11-3-1 with 8 KOs and represents a step up in competition. Those three losses and one draw came in his last four fights, with the past two defeats coming to welterweights Ray Robinson (who won a unanimous decision in February 2013) and Ronald Cruz (who won by 10th-round knockout in September 2013).
