Prior to his last bout on June 15 at the Washington Convention Center, undefeated Waldorf, MD junior welterweight Mike "Yes, Indeed" Reed was interviewed as part of a brand new internet show called the DMV Sports Zone. There are two reasons why we want you to see this interview. One, it's a good one featuring some interesting comments from Reed.
The second reason is to introduce you to this program that is covering the grass roots version of local sports -- like youth and club soccer, club boxing shows and local volleyball tournaments. In other words, the sports you will not see on a regular basis in the mainstream sports media. The show is hosted by Cyprian Khumarlo, a gentleman who has stepped into the boxing ring from time to time. Khumarlo and his staff have been very visible at recent boxing cards in the area and the DC Boxing and Wrestling Commission has recently allowed them to video at their upcoming events.
Khumarlo is also putting together a documentary about the sport of boxing and the working title asks the question that many people who are unfamiliar (and sometimes, very familiar) with the sport ask the participants. They want to know "Why We Box." When the documentary is finished (which hopes to be sometime next year) we will let you know.
Here is the interview with Reed.
