Press Release: Undefeated junior welterweight Kenneth Sims, Jr. will look to make it twelve in a row without a loss when he takes on Mexico's Israel Villela (6-4) in a six-round bout this Saturday night at The Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The bout will be part of a ten-bout card promoted by GH3 Promotions and D and D Promotions. In the main event, junior welterweight Keenan Smith (10-0) of Philadelphia takes on Edgar Gabejan (27-33-7) of the Philippines in a bout scheduled for eight rounds. 

Sims of Chicago, recently won an eight-round unanimous decision over Emmanuel Robles (15-1-1) on January 20th.  That fight was part of a ShoBox: The New Generation card seen live on Showtime.

Sims got the call to take a "stay busy" fight, before he steps back up later in the summer. "I found out about this fight three weeks ago.  It is not a big deal, I already had been sparring, so I am in good shape and ready for Saturday," said Sims.

In Villela, Sims has seen little, but not a lot of his opponent, but he will be ready for anything that Villela will bring to the ring.

"I saw a few Youtube videos, but I did not see a lot to get to a feel for him.  But I am an experienced fighter, and I just have to fight my fight.  I am not underestimating him, and I know he will be trying to win."

In the fight with Robles, Sims fought well throughout, and gave a brief critique of his performance.

"I looked over the last fight, and I looked better watching it on television then I thought I did in the ring.  With that being said, I know I have things to work on, and I could have looked better."

Sims is looking for a big performance on Saturday that will be a prelude to a busy Summer.

"It would be good to get a stoppage.  I am looking to come back May 13th in Louisiana, then a fight back on television."

Tyrell Wright (9-0-1) of Jersey City, NJ will face Dan Pasciolla (9-2-1) of Brick, New Jersey in a heavyweight bout.
