- Foster vs Reid II goes Saturday, February 22nd at 5:00 pm EST
- Who will be the conclusive winner in the rematch after the draw in their first outing?
- Check out the odds, analysis, and my prediction below
Foster vs Reid II goes down at the same venue the initial bout took place. This prizefight goes down at York Hall in London, England. The BBBofC British super-bantamweight title is on the line on Saturday. Lucien Reid looks to unseat reigning king Brad Foster from his throne and overtake it himself.
Two undefeated pugilists will step into the ring this weekend but only one participant will leave with that unblemished record. A 22-year-old champion known as The Blade defends his crown against a 26-year-old contender known as Lethal.
Foster vs Reid II Odds
Odds taken Feb. 17th.
Fury vs Wilder II isn’t the only high stakes rematch slated to go down Saturday in the boxing this world. These two represent some of the very best 122 lb fighters that Europe has to offer. The lack of a conclusive outcome in the first bout was considered controversial by many pundits and fans alike. Many felt Reid deserved the nod in the initial fight which is why oddsmakers have him slated as a slight favorite. One judge thought Reid had done enough to win but the remaining two judges had it even.
A Clear Cut Winner
There are obvious differences when comparing the respective resumes of both men. Reid has only defeated a single opponent with a winning record. Foster certainly has some journeymen on his record too but has spent the last year and a half putting on impressive performances; all in British and Commonwealth title bouts. The reigning champ also seems rejuvenated by his recent period o time off. Foster recently inferred to the media that he healed a few injuries with a specific mention of a broken knuckle. He seems physically resorted and is galvanized mentally ahead of this.
A crazy finish to a great fight!

Both men have never been defeated as professionals but do have a couple draws on their respective records. Both have four knockout wins to their credit but both of their records ell different stories in this regard. Reid had an 80 percent KO rate in his first five fights. He has since racked up four decision victories and has had back to back draws (both occurring during his 2019 campaign). Foster’s first five victories were all via decision and he has since had all four stoppage wins across his last six victories.
