Robin Reid has set his sights on a clash with WBA super-middleweight champion Manny Siaca in the autumn.

"I think that fight was really an eliminator for the WBA title so let's get it on now now," said Reid, who claimed the IBO super-middleweight tile from Ulsterman Brian Magee on Saturday night with a unanimous points decision at the King's Hall in Belfast.

Reid had to overcome a gash on his forehead, which leaked blood throughout the 12 bruising rounds, and saw Magee get off the floor four times, twice in the eighth when he showed incredible courage to survive the Runcorn fighter's onslaught.

Former WBC champion Reid has had a tough time since losing that title seven years ago, having to be content with lesser title fights and then a controversial loss to Sven Ottke for the more prestigious IBF belt in December in Germany.
