Talk about not resting on your laurels. BATB has learned that Lynchburg, VA super middleweight Scott "Cujo" Sigmon will be defending his WBC USNBC Super Middleweight title -- yes, the title Sigmon JUST won on February 3 in Greensboro, NC -- on Saturday, February 18 on the Left Hook Boxing card at the Cherry Beasley Readiness Center in Winchester, VA.
To make this even more interesting, the opponent for Sigmon (20-3, 11 KO's) will be one of the most experienced boxers that Sigmon has faced. The opponent will be former world title challenger Jonathan "Reid Dawg" Reid of Nashville, TN.
Reid (35-14, 19 KO's) has lost three of his last four bouts with two of the losses and the lone win in that stretch coming at the George Mason University Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA. Reid lost a bout to fellow Contender-Season one participant Jimmy Lange by a ninth-round stoppage in September of 2009. One bout later, Reid broke a nine-bout losing streak with a six-round unanimous decision over Mike McFail in November of 2010. Reid's last bout was an eight-round unanimous decision loss to George Rivera on September 10.
Reid unsuccessfully challenged William Joppy for the WBA Middleweight title in 2000 and lost by fourth-round TKO.
