Reid is undefeated in her last 20 fights, and once again is in tough with the Hector Roca trained Ashley. Roca, of course, trained Hillary Swank for the Academy Award winning movie “Million Dollar Baby”," and has trained numerous world champions on the “male” side of the sport.
In the co-feature, Shelley Burton (5-1) looks to run her winning streak to three as she takes on Akondayne Fountain (4-1) in a junior middleweight six-rounder.
The show also marks the return to the U.S. of highly-touted Swedish amateur champion Asa Sandell (2-0). Sandell will tackle her toughest challenge to date as she steps up to six rounds to take on Yolanda Swindell (3-2).
Rounding out the card will be a battle of “the undefeateds” as Jennie Salinas (5-0) and Laura Norton (2-0) meet in a scheduled four-round bantamweight fight, and light heavyweights Bose Ijoala (0-1) and Liana Owens (1-2) will open the show in a scheduled four-round bout.
Arnie “Tokyo” Rosenthal, Rock and Sock principal, said that “We’re trying to out do our last show, which just might have been the best night of women’s boxing ever assembled on one card.” His partner, Ken Weiss, chimed in and said, “Keep an eye on Reid , Sandell, and Burton. They are on course for major fights on our November Pay Per View special.”
Tickets are available at Harrah’s box office, or by phone at 702-298-4600.
