Lacy-Reid Negotiations Break Down - Lacy Looking for New Opponent

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (April 14, 2005) -- The negotiations between IBF super middleweight champion Jeff Lacy and IBF No. 3 contender Robin Reid have broken down. Lacy had hoped to defend his title against Reid, Saturday, August 6, in a Showtime-televised world title homecoming in Tampa, FL..

"The only thing I can conclude is that Reid does not really want the fight," said promoter Gary Shaw. "We have been negotiating in good faith with Reid's representative, Jess Harding, something I cannot say about the Reid camp. The negotiations are over and Jeff has asked me to move on and find another high caliber contender to challenge Jeff for his title in conjunction with the IBF. We are hopeful to be making that announcement shortly."
