The promoters for the next Fight World Cup bout in November requested that a photo of Reece be used for their official poster (shown below)! YAY!
Reece is stoked!
The picture was originally taken just seconds after Reece won his last fight. It's hard for me to believe that the muscled fighter looking ready to kill on that poster is actually my son. I'm very proud of him but I'm even more proud of the fact that Reece felt bad for his opponent who was feeling pretty deflated after his loss to Reece. They both spoke after the match and Reece encouraged him to keep at it and even invited him over for a training session at the fight club Reece attends. So, while Reece looks like a lean, mean fighting machine on the poster, he also has a big heart to match.
He was announced the winner!
Mehul on the left is Reece's friend and big-time supporter. He trains with Reece too and Mehul himself has an Australian title fight coming up in October. Leo, on the right, is Reece's trainer.

I'm one proud Mumma!
