You aren't making a lot of sens, at least to me :). But if tou wish to 
save reducer output somehow different you will have to implement your 
own class that implements 

It's easier to extend 

and override the parts that you need.

The framework will call methods from the above mentioned class to 
persist the data from reducers. You instruct the framework to use your 
class when you call 
job.setOutputFormatClass(SequenceFileOutputFormat.class); (this makes 
the output a SequenceFile).

Example to save under a different name:

public static class RenamedSequenceFile extends SequenceFileOutputFormat {

         public Path getDefaultWorkFile(TaskAttemptContext context, 
String extension) throws IOException {
             FileOutputCommitter committer = (FileOutputCommitter) 
             return new Path(committer.getWorkPath(), "myBetterName");

This will output your reducer data into "myBetterName" file as key 
values pairs (behaviour inherited from SequanceFileOutputFormat).

I hope this helps,
