Robin Reid

How good was he? Would we look at him differently if he wasn't totally robbed against Ottke?

He was a good fighter, gave Calzaghe a close fight too, some think he won it. I remember the Ottke fight, the most blatant dodgy refeereing I can remember seeing

I thought he beat Calzaghe. If you're scoring the rounds separately I felt he took 7-5.

Very decent fighter...had a mare against Lacy. Didn't he used to go out with Teresa May? And no...not the politician 😆

I was there and I thought he won. I watched it without sound and scorer it properly the next day and got 7-5 also.

She was a glamour model wasn’t she, might be true as I remember reading something years ago that he was appearing in “adult type” photographs as a sideline.

Great fighter on his day. Erratic at the elite level. Had a really good fight with Wharton.

Robin was a quality fighter.......very unlucky indeed against Calzaghe and worth noting some big wins on the road.
He busted-up Nardiello for the WBC title and in Italy and also beat Brian Magee in Belfast, tough away days.

Nice guy into the bargain - he was on the Audley Harrison undercard at Wembley Arena - won his fight then came back and signed my programme and told his family/mates to settle down so we could watch Audley blow-out Tim Middleton.

He couldn't miss Calzaghe with the right hand. Allegedly he didn't have good prep against Lacy before hand. No sparring etc. He had a good run with the ibo and fought some ex champs albeit from lower weights. -

In my old gym there was a poster for a unification he was meant to have with Collins. That would have been a good match up.

It was the win against Reid that made the UK think Calzaghe was going to get hammered off Lacey.

That Calzaghe beat down ruined Lacy's entire career

Good shout. Forgot all about that. Been that long since I saw it. Think it was in Newcastle.
