A fight between the Belfast and Limerick fighters was suggested online, prompting a positive response from both parties.
It’s now believed contact has been made and dialogue opened regarding a December 10th meeting, with talks underway to make McComb-Reeves for the undercard of Michael Conlan-Karim Guerfi.
With Tyrone McKenna already confirmed to face Liam Taylor and Graham McCormack putting his BUI Celtic title on the line against Fearghus Quinn the undercard already has fights of real note on it. The addition of McComb, who will appear on the card regardless, and Reeves would make it one of the strongest undercards of any Irish card of late.
Considering Limerick southpaw Reeves won the NABF light welterweight title this summer, doing so on top of a DAZN bill, and McComb has challenged for the Commonwealth title, it could be deemed beyond domestic level all Irish fight.
If terms can be agreed both teams may push for a ranking title to be put on the line – but an Irish title may still appeal to both.
McComb has been calling for fights of note throughout 2022, name-dropping Ohara Davies among others and Dalton Smith, while Irish-boxing.com understands Reeves had accepted an offer to fight Victor Rabei on Conlan Boxing’s proposed Galway show before that was postponed.
