Reed Left Without Opponent, May Land on 3/5 Golden Boy Show

by David P. Greisman

Junior welterweight prospect Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed was supposed to face Marco Antonio Lopez on tomorrow night’s preliminary undercard to Terence Crawford vs. Hank Lundy at Madison Square Garden. But Lopez was pulled from the show after the New York Athletic Commission received his blood work, according to Top Rank spokesman Lee Samuels.

“Of course I’m disappointed,” Reed said shortly before he was to step on the scales. “I made the weight. Training camp is over. That’s the hard part.”

Reed said he wanted the exposure that would come with fighting in front of a crowd that had turned up for Crawford-Lundy and the chief supporting bout featuring Felix Verdejo against William Silva.

But it might not be long before Reed is back in the ring.

“They’ve got a big possibility for us,” said Michael Pinson, Reed’s father. “We’re going to wait and see if they can make that happen.”

Samuels told BoxingScene that Top Rank has contacted Golden Boy Promotions in hopes of getting Reed on its March 5 show in Washington, D.C.

If it happens, that would at least put Reed in front of a hometown crowd; he hails from nearby Waldorf, Maryland. The show features a main event of heavyweight Luis Ortiz vs. Tony Thompson and welterweights Jessie Vargas and Sadam Ali competing for a vacant title.

Reed, 23, is 17-0 with 10 KOs. He is coming off a seventh-round stoppage of Rondale Hubbert this past November.
