REID: “I’M ALL ABOUT SPEED, POWER AND KNOCKOUTS”
Red-hot Hackney Super-Bantamweight prospect Lucien Reid is delighted to have signed a three year a promotional deal with Frank Warren. Undefeated Reid, 4-0 3 KO’s, makes his eagerly-anticipated BoxNation debut in a four round contest at the home of boxing York Hall on June 10.
‘Lethal’ Lucien enjoyed a glittering amateur career, winning a national junior novice title with Repton ABC before switching to West Ham ABC, where he reached another junior final and again won a London ABA title. The former Senior ABA Elite Champion and England international is promising BoxNation viewers explosive entertainment.
“I’m all about speed, power and knockouts. I’m looking to impress on June 10thbecause I haven’t boxed in five months and I need to start stepping up my career now I’m in the mandatory position for the Southern Area and English titles. I’ll be looking to have a go at them in the next four months so I need a good performance on June 10th to put me in good stead,” said Reid.
Reid learnt his trade at the famous Repton and West Ham amateur boxing clubs and says he can stand and trade or box and move. Managed by Peter Sims, Reid joins an action-packed York Hall card and is prepared for whoever he steps in the ring with.
Reid said: “I started off at Repton and then moved to West Ham after 6 years so I’ve learnt both styles. Repton was a very classy boxing style and West Ham was a very gruelling, hard-core fighter style so I’ve learnt both styles which has put me in good stead. If anyone wants to try and come at me I can box and if anyone wants to try and move I can fight as well.”
22 year-old Reid, a proud father to 2 year-old son Hudson Beau, is looking forward to taking his career to the next level under Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren and is driven by the desire to make his son proud.
He said: “I just want to get as many titles as I can to show my little boy. That’s what it’s all about; impressing my little boy. I want to be able to take home belts like when I was an amateur and see his face light up. I want to win more!”
Warren said: “Lucien comes from great fighting stock and has already shown his promise with three impressive knockouts in his first four professional fights. His speed and power make for an exciting fighting style and he’s capable of mixing it up. Under the guidance of our team Lucien can take his career onto the next level.”
Red-hot Mitchell Smith makes his eagerly anticipated return to an action in an eight rounder, English Light-Heavyweight Champion Tom Baker fights over ten rounds and Light-Heavyweight monster Anthony Yarde goes in search of another KO. Top prospects Lyon Woodstock, D.P Carr, Billy Long, Jez Smith, Charlie Duffield, Nathaniel Wilson and pro-debutant Ryan Garner all feature.
