Lee Reeves added to Lupia vs. Tyner Card in Toronto

Ireland’s Lee Reeves has been announced as the co-main event at REBEL Entertainment Complex on December 18th. Another addition to the card being staged by Lee Baxter Promotions.

Headlining the event will be Joshuah Lupia (8-0 7 KOs) as he takes on Lanardo Tyner (35-16-2 22 KOs) in welterweight bout.

Reeves (9-1-0 6 KOs) goes head-to-head with Larone Whyte (6-5-1 5KOs). Back in May, Reeves won the NABF Super Lightweight Title after dominating Sebastian Diaz Maldonado, winning his first title as a professional live on DAZN.

Reeves was tabbed by none other than Tyson Fury as the next Irish boxing superstar. Reeves, an amateur standout in Ireland, won 2 Irish National Titles; 7 Munster Championships; and 7 Limerick Championships during his time as an amateur. Since turning professional, the majority of Reeves’ fights have been held in Canada.

Fighting out of Mississauga, Larone Whyte will be in the opposite corner to Reeves. Whyte is the more experienced professional and he will use this to his advantage against the younger Reeves. Larone is no stranger to a tough challenge. A warrior that never backs down from a fight and always takes on the avoided prospects.

Canadian Super Bantamweight Champion Amanda Galle (6-0-1) is back in action against Luz Elena Martinez (6-4 3KOs) in an 8-round contest; Martinez is a former WBC International Challenger. Moe Zawadi (4-1 4KOs), who was a 4x Canadian National Amateur Champion, will look to close out the year in spectacular style against local rival Marco Parente (1-4-3). Current Canadian Bantamweight Champion, Ross Mylet (7-1-1), will be getting the action underway on the night as he faces Eduardo Cruz Munoz (21-18-1 14KOs) in a bout scheduled for 6 rounds.
