Kermit Cintron has the bad boy image of a guy who's openly cocky, unabashedly talented and patently driven to make his mark in the welterweight division, ASAP. Standing in his way to self-styled glory was the hard punching veteran Teddy Reid. Reid, known as "2 Guns" had no intention of letting the judges have their say in which welterweight would be fast tracked to a fall showdown with welterweight champion Cory Spinks. At thirty-three, Reid saw himself as the battle tested warrior in against a hyped wannabe. When the bell set this fight into motion, Reid's jab along with his movement appeared tentative, as much as it could be described as measured. Cintron wanted to box behind his jab, keeping Reid turning before him, always in range for his bombing right hand. As Cintron worked and reworked openings with his jab, he mixed in hard left hooks to Reid body. Reid tried to unload his left hook but was just being out sped for the first round and much of the second.
