In the twelve-round main event on January 28 at Northern Quest Casino in Airway Heights, Washington, Teddy "Two Gun" Reid, 22-6-1, 16 KOs (Boxingtalk's #13 welterweight), will move up to 154 to face against Eddie Sanchez, 12-3-2, 8 KOs. Reid's original opponent, Rodney Jones was injured in training and withdrew from the fight. ESPN2 will televise.
Sanchez is coming off his two career-best wins, both upsets, in his last two fights, and is no stranger to taking a fight on short notice. He took his last fight, on August 13, 2004, against world-ranked contender J.C. Candelo, literally on last-minute notice. Eddie wasn?t confirmed to fight until the morning of the show, but won a 12-round unanimous decision that night. The win earned him a place in the world rankings at Boxingtalk #29, IBF #10 and WBC #14. Two months earlier in June, he scored a sixth-round TKO win against world-ranked Jose Celaya.MAIN EVENT - 12 ROUNDS, SUPER WELTERWEIGHTS -
