 “YES INDEED” REED REFLECTS ON HIS RECENT TKO WIN, RETURNS JUNE 13 IN NYC

Mike Reed will return to the ring at New York City’s Theater at Madison Square Garden on HBO’s “Boxing After Dark” fight card.

WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S.A. – Top Rank light welterweight professional boxer, Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed (Washington, D.C.) will return to the ring on Saturday night, June 13, on HBO’s “Boxing After Dark” undercard, held at New York City’s Theater at Madison Square Garden. Reed will face Puerto Rico’s Luis Joel Gonzalez (11-1-1, 6 KOs) in an 8 round bout promoted by Top Rank, in association with All-Star Boxing. In the main event, Jamaica’s Nicholas “The Axe Man” Walters (25-0, 21 KOs) defends his WBA World Featherweight Title against Colombia’s Miguel Marriaga (20-0, 18 KOs), and in the co-main event, Puerto Rico’s Felix Verdejo (17-0, 13 KOs) will battle San Antonio’s Ivan Najera (16-0, 8 KOs). The fight card on June 13 takes place on the eve of the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City.

In his recent fight on the May 8 Tru TV non-televised undercard, held at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, Reed defeated Osenohad Vazquez by TKO at 2:00 of Round 2. Reed’s record improved to 14-0, with 8 KOs, while Vazquez saw his record drop to 8-4-1, with 3 KOs. Reed said, “My last fight went really well. I felt like I stuck to our game plan, which was to jump on him, hit him hard, and hit him early. I did what I was supposed to do and it really worked out for me. I knew from his last fight that he’d have doubt in his mind since he was knocked out in that fight, and I took full advantage of that. I’ve learned that I won’t be able to continue making 140 pounds the way that I have been. My body is growing and changing, so it’s time to start changing my diet with it. I’m already working in the gym and have started to shift my diet and cut weight.”

Reed discussed his fight with Gonzalez on June 13. He said, “I’m excited to be fighting at the Theatre at Madison Square Garden on a stacked HBO Boxing card. We are stepping up in opposition, and I’m ready for that. My opponent’s one loss came against Ramesis Gil, who I defeated earlier in my career. This should be a great fight, and I’m looking forward to the challenge. It’s an honor to fight on the eve of the Puerto Rican Day Parade. I’m looking forward to having lots of Puerto Rican fans get on board with Team Reed.”

Michael “Buck” Pinson, Reed’s father, trainer, and manager (Dream Team Boxing Gym/Clinton, MD), said, “I thought he did well in his last fight, and did was he was supposed to do. I didn’t appreciate him coming into weigh-ins at the weight he did. That being said, I was proud of his effort during the fight. Mike did put his punches together very well, and he used some of the things we’ve been working on in the gym. We are definitely looking forward to stepping up the competition on June 13 at MSG Theater. I’m excited to be back on another big HBO card, and it’s another great opportunity for us to show what we can do. We expect Gonzalez to bring his best, and we’ll be ready. We went back to the drawing board to improve on some things. In this game, the learning never stops, and there’s always room for improvement. Come June 13, we’ll be ready to put on a show at the Garden.”

Tickets to Reed’s fight at the Theater at Madison Square Garden are on sale now, and priced at $205, $105, and $55, not including applicable taxes and fees. Tickets can be purchased at the MSG Box Office and all Ticketmaster outlets. You can purchase tickets by phone at (866) 858 0008 or online atwww.TheGarden.com and www.ticketmaster.com

Dynamite Dargan Ready for Test Against Ramesis Gil 2/23 at Paramount, Huntington NY

TOTOWA, NJ (February 13, 2013) – Undefeated Philly lightweight, Karl “Dynamite” Dargan, 11-0, 6 KOs, is set to jump-start his boxing career when he takes on gatekeeper Ramesis Gil, 8-5-5, 5 KOs, in a 6-round bout at The Paramount, in Huntington, NY, on Saturday, February 23rd.  The bout is on the undercard of a big NBC Sports Network Fight Night card that features undefeated heavyweights Czar Glazkov and Malik Scott in its nationally televised 10-round main event.
 
 All eyes have been on Dynamite since his successful amateur days when he was one of the top American boxers on the international scene.  He filled his trophy case with numerous medals and awards throughout those years, and ever since he turned professional in 2007, hopes have remained high for him to ascend to a professional world championship. 
 
 
 Dynamite fought once last year, but since signing with Main Events he is determined to remain active in 2013 and gain significant ground in the world ratings.  First up is Ramesis Gil. 
 
Dominican-born Gil went unbeaten in his first ten pro bouts before becoming the go-to-guy for testing undefeated prospects.  Gil’s last eight starts have been against undefeated risers like Jerry Belmontes, Jorge Maysonet Jr. and Darley Perez.  These tough assignments put a few marks on Gil’s record, but they also made him an effective gauge of lightweight talent.  He fell to some of them, but managed to defeat Luis Joel Gonzalez, 9-0-1, and Carney Bowman, 16-0, and drew with an 8-0 Jamie Kavanagh.  This makes Gil a live opponent for Dargan, and capable of pulling the upset at any time.  
 
 
 
 Dargan said, “Fighting on NBC Sports Network is a tremendous opportunity for me. I am ready for Gil. Training camp was great. Now it’s time to fight. There’s nothing he can throw at me that I won’t be ready for.”
 
Dynamite will have to be fully prepared for Gil and on his toes when the bell rings.  If he can pass this test against Gil, then 2013 may just be the year he fights his way into the world rankings and puts his dream of becoming a world champion back on track.   
 
ABOUT FEBRUARY 23 FIGHTS 
The February 23rd card is promoted by Main Events, Star Boxing and Goossen Tutor.  The main event featuring Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov vs. Malik Scott, and the co-feature, Chris Algieri vs. Jose “Mangu” Peralta, will be shown live on the NBC Sports Network Fight Night telecast which begins at 10:30 pm ET.
 
Seven bouts are planned for the February 23 card to be held at The Paramount, 370 New York Ave, Huntington, NY. Doors open at 6:30pm. First fight is at 7:30pm. 
 
Tickets priced at $200, $150, $125 $100 and $50 (standing room) can be purchased through Star Boxing 718-823-2000, www.starboxing.com, Paramount Box office 631-673-7300, Ticketmaster 1-800-745-3000 or www.Ticketmaster.com.
