Bout Summary

In front of a live crowd at the Robert Treat Hotel, Light Heavyweight rising star Shaun George 16-2-2 (7 KOs) of Brooklyn, New York earned an impressive unanimous decision victory over late replacement Thomas Reid 35-20-1 (13 KOs) of Jackson, Tennessee. George impressed the crowd with his world class hand speed while landing many impressive body shots. Reid did land a few haymakers but was never able to hurt George. Reid was stunned on many occasions and was severely winded during the last few rounds. To Reid’s credit, he was never knocked down and showed why he has gone the distance with many top fighters, only being stopped four times in his 20 losses.

“I was upset I wasn’t able to finish him off but overall I think my performance was ok. I was very excited to fight Eric Harding since he is a world class fighter and after hearing he pulled out, I was let down. This is nothing against Reid, he was a very tough veteran and I can see how he went the distance with good fighters in the past. I was training for a different type of fighter {being that Harding is a southpaw boxer} and did not get tapes of Reid until the day before the fight”, George said after his victory. - From Boxingtribune.com -
