Dhafir Smith Steps In To Fight Jonathan Reid On August 24th!

20.08.07 - Pennsylvania based veteran Dhafir Smith 17-16-5 {4 KO’s} has stepped in to challenge Contender season 1 star Jonathan “Reid Dawg” Reid 34-6 {19 KO’s}. The fight which will be the co-main event at the New Alhambra in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania will be fought at catch weight of 165 lbs.

Smith is stepping in for Rasheem Brown who pulled out for undisclosed reasons and will be looking for his second straight victory after scoring a shocking knockout over Brandon Mitchem on July 27th. Reid will attempt to impress the crowd in his first trip to Philadelphia as well as new promoter Diane Lee Fischer of Dee Lee Promotions.

“I will be prepared to the best of my ability” said the former NABA Middleweight king. “I am not sure why Rasheem Brown pulled out, but I will dedicate this fight to my fellow season 1 Contender stable mate Najai Turpin who committed suicide shortly after the show. It an honor to be able to come into his home turf and compete in the squared circle. My victory will go out to him and his family”.
