Rising Limerick star confirms Niagara Falls fight date

Limerick prospect Lee Reeves has been handed another fight date.

The 24 year old will fight for a fifth time since turning over as recent as November last year on June 29.

The welterweight returns to Canada for his fifth fight in seven months and will fight at Scotiabank Convention Centre, Niagara Falls against a yet to be confirmed opponent. 

The slick southpaw topped a bill at the home of the maple leaf last time out and registered an early stoppage win against Guillermo Ariel Lettieri, who was meant represent a step up foe. 

This time Reeves will appear further down the card and get a break from the spotlight, as he provides support for Custio Clayton and Samuel Vargas.

Reeves has been one of Ireland’s busiest new to the scene pros having debuted back in November.

He is obviously fancied by Lee Baxter Promotions and impressed greatly in New York on St Patrick’s Day on the undercard of Michael Conlan’s MSG fight night.

The Treaty man was then handed a slot at the top of his own bill and handled what was meant to represent a step up with ease, as well almost rejoicing in the extra spotlight.

Speaking to Irish-boxing.com after his last win Reeves said,

“I guess some people are born and happy going day to day standing in the crowd but I am born to be the reason there is a crowd.” 

“I’m not in this sport or country to make up numbers, I am striving for greatness and want the whole world to know and respect my name.”
