Saturday, December 10 will be a very busy day for Beltway Boxers. Not only do we have the Ponytail Promotions card at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA, we also have two locals who have interesting bouts out of town.
Undefeated Waldorf, MD super lightweight Mike "Yes, Indeed" Reed returns to action in a scheduled eight-round contest against Sidney Siqueira of Sao Paulo, Brazil at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, NB. Reed (20-0, 12 KO's) is coming off a sixth-round TKO over Aaron Herrera on October 14 in Philadelphia, PA. Reed makes his second trip to Omaha -- he scored a sixth-round TKO over Oscar Valenzuela in November of 2014. Siqueira (26-11-1, 17 KO's) has not fought since losing a 10-round unanimous decision to undefeated Jose Benavidez almost a year ago on December 12 in Tuscon, AZ. Siqueira will be trying to break a three-bout losing streak.
This bout will be on the undercard of Terrence Crawford's WBC/WBO Super Lightweight title defense against John Molina, Jr.
Meanwhile, Fort Washington, MD featherweight Marq "Monster" Johns will battle undefeated Leroy Davila of New Brunswick, NJ in a four-round contest at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA. The bout will be a homecoming for Johns (7-1-1, six KO's) who is originally from Philadelphia. Johns last fought on April 9 and stopped Alan Beeman in the third round in Springfield, VA. Davila (4-0, two KO's) is coming off a four-round unanimous decision over Damon Simon on November 11 at the 2300 Arena. Davila was a member of the USA National Amateur Team in 2014.
