Fri, 12 Oct 2018
CHICAGO, IL., (October 11, 2018) - Junior Welterweight Kenneth Sims, Jr. will be back in action this Saturday night when he takes on Andrew Rodgers in a six-round bout at The McBride Hall in Gary, Indiana.
Sims of nearby Chicago will be back in the ring for the first time since taking an eight-round split decision over previously undefeated Montana Love on July 20th in a bout that was nationally televised on ShoBox: The New Generation on SHOWTIME.
Sims (12-1-1, 4 KOs) has been working in Houston, Texas with some top-notch sparring partners, which will help him go forward in his career.
"My camp was great. It was a full camp with my strength and conditioning coach. I got great sparring with O'Shaquie Foster, Regis Prograis, and Taras Shelestyuk," said Sims.
In Rodgers, Sims is taking on an unheralded opponent in what most a terming a "stay busy fight."
"I really do not know much about him. I am taking this fight as it is close to home. I have been fighting in different places, so this is a good opportunity for my family and fans to see me fight."
After being injured for the better part of the last year, Sims is looking to stay active at the end of the 2018 and into 2019.
"I hope to have another fight before the end of the year. It doesn't matter if it another fight like this or something more significant. It all depends on the situation."
