BOUT#9: ANTHONY WERNER (DEBUT) VS JAMES REED (11-13) PRO 145LBS
RD#1: The co main event of the evening is our first professional bout of the evening with Anthony Werner making his debut against veteran James Reed. Reed comes out early with a low kick and a superman punch off the cage. This pushes Werner back and he lands a big kick across the midsection of Werner and then finishes with a takedown. Reed works ground and pound from inside the guard of Werner but gets too high in the guard and almost gets caught in an armbar. The sly vet in Reed won’t have it though as he slides out of it and takes the back of Werner and sinks the rear naked choke in simultaneously. Moments later Werner is forced to tap out to the choke.

I knew this was going to be different – he fought a good fight the first time but when I went back and looked at it I computed it and tonight I came out all right
1st time around man is world champ he’s been on top a long time I give him credit he is a great fighter and when u fight great fighters you have to raise your game.
Ifelt like I was up but I don’t know by how many
I saw him reacting to body shots that were borderline so i knew I had him
I knew he was hut trying to cover up. (watching) hat’s what started it – right there with ethe right hand
I went back to the body. I went right back there again and he wasn’t reacting then the referee stopped the fight.
(IS P4P important to you?)
Of course it is but I don’t have a vote. When I beat a great fighter like Kovalev hopefully I will get the vote now
He is a good fighter and I give nothing but respect to him
Maybe cruiserweight. I don’t know. I always wanted to fight heavyweight but it has to be the right guy.
I don’t know I can’t explain it.
Not every round but I thought I was doing very good
I was better nd he was better this fight. I didn’t feel like I was getting knocked down by the power of his punches.
Low blow. Again. Another one.
One shot was on the border.
I could have continued. I didn’t feel he could throw the punch that would end the fight.
This is fighting we are boxers yes he did punch me but he didn’t hurt me. The fight should have continued.
I would like it very much to fight him again.
