Former WBC world champion Robin Reid will be looking to roll back the years when he faces Kenny Anderson for the vacant British super middleweight title on the undercard of Kell Brook’s world final eliminator against Hector Saldivia on October 20th at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield.
After 4 years away from the ring, he announced his return in February last year at the veteran age of 40. He beat Jamie Ambler over 4 rounds in his comeback fight, before entering the Prizefighter super-middleweights. It didn’t go according to plan and Reid lost in the quarter final against young gun Tobias Webb over the 3 round duration. Reid told me recently that in the Prizefighter, he was ‘just warming up’ after being use to 12 round world title fights, the 3 round distance certainly didn’t suite the former champion on the night and he went out of the tournament losing on points.
