Reid answers Call

Pele Reid made predictably short work of Grimsby's Albert Call at Bristol's Whitchurch Sports Centre last night. The Birmingham heavyweight knockout specialist was simply too big and strong for Call, a 48-hour substitute, and recorded his 11th straight stoppage after two min 29 sec of round two. Call was Reid's third opponent in as many days after two Americans had been rejected by the Board of Control. Reid remains the leading contender for the British and Commonwealth titles of Julius Francis.
