Mike Reed Dominates Rob Frankel For Decision Win

By Ryan Burton

Lincoln, Nebraska - Mike "Yes Indeed" Reed (23-0) kept his perfect record intact by defeating Rob Frankel (35-18-1) via unanimous decision as he continues his march towards a title shot in the super lightweight division. The difference in hand speed was evident early on and the shop worn Frankel had little success mounting any type of attack. 

Reed consistently beat him to the punch and really poured it on Frankel in the 6th round. Frankel was hurt on several occasions but was able to survive till the final bell. 

The final scores were 100-90 on all three cards. After the fight Reed said, "This is my second 10 round fight.  I will fight anyone at 140 and I mean anyone."

Omaha resident Kevin Ventura (8-0) delighted the local fans with a third round knockout of the tough Baltazar Ramirez (3-4) in their super featherweight fight. A big body shot sent Ramirez to a knee and he stayed on a knee as the referee reached a count of 10.  Ventura, along with Steve Nelson, are trained by Terence Crawford's trainer Brian McIntyre.

Mike Alvarado (38-4) continued his way on the comeback trail with a wicked knockout of Sidney Siqueira (21-13-1) in their welterweight contest.   Alvarado had to survive several rocky moments early on as Siqueira came out guns-a-blazing in the first three rounds.

Alvarado went down in the third but it was correctly ruled a slip. Alvarado started to come on in the fourth with his uppercut finding a home. An uppercut had Siqueira hurt  midway through the round and then a huge right hand put Siqueira down with his head bouncing off the canvas.

The TKO will be in the running for Knockout of the Year.  The former super lightweight titlist has now won 4 fights in a row. The time of the stoppage was 1:20.

Local favorite Steve Nelson (9-0) kept his perfect record intact with a hard fought unanimous decision victory over a game Cesar Ruiz (5-6) in their light heavyweight bout.  Ruiz was significantly smaller than Nelson but kept charging forward throughout the fight. Nelson pitched a shutout 60-54 on all three scorecards but had to work hard in only his second bout that has gone the distance in his 9 fight career.
