Reid began his professional career in 1993 and quickly became a popular British fighter. In 1996, he captured the World Boxing Council super middleweight title by defeating Vincenzo Nardiello by a TKO in 7. He then successfully defended his title three times, including a victory over Hacine Cherifi. Reid then lost his title to Thulani Malinga via a unanimous decision. He then lost decisions to Joe Calzaghe and Silvio Branco.
In 2003 Reid faced IBF and WBA super middleweight title holder Sven Ottke, who took a narrow and highly disputed unanimous decision over Reid. In 2005, Reid landed a shot at IBF super middleweight title holder Jeff Lacy, who dominated him and won via an 8th-round TKO.
After the Lacy fight, Reid beat Jessie Brinkley and then suffered a knockout defeat at the hands of Carl Froch in a British super-middleweight fight in November 2007, he announced his decision to retire soon after this fight.
In January 2009 Reid said on Liverpool's City Talk radio station that he would like to come out of retirement and fight Tony Dodson for the British super-middleweight title, providing Dodson overcomes Brian Magee on 28 March at the Echo Arena, Liverpool, Merseyside.
“I would love to fight Tony Dodson for the British super-middleweight title at the ECHO Arena, no disrespect to Tony as I think he is a great fighter, but I have never held the Lonsdale Belt and would love the chance to put it around my waist.
“Obviously, I feel like I still have something left to offer the sport and a fight with Tony in Liverpool – two Scousers going at it for the British title – would be the fight that Liverpool fight fans would want to see most.”
Reid competed in the super middleweight prizefighter competition on 23 March 2011, losing in his first fight via unanimous decision to Tobias Webb.
