Kenneth Sims, Eduardo Martinez Win in Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE - Gary Shaw Productions undefeated sensations, Jr. Welterweight Kenneth "Bossman" Sims Jr. (2-0, 1 KO) and Super-Bantamweight Eduardo Martinez (2-0, 1 KO) were victorious tonight at the Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Both men competed in separate 4-round bouts.

Martinez mounted a vicious body attack that forced his opponent, Mateo Soto (0-5), to quit on his stool after the first round.  The body blows were heard throughout the arena and Martinez was elated with joy, winning is second professional bout by knockout, the first of his bright career.

"My goal was to come out here tonight and get the knockout," said Martinez. "I felt my punches were doing a lot of damage because I could hear my opponent grunting every time I landed a shot to his body. Gary Shaw, Antonio Leonard and James Prince are doing a great job with my career and I can't wait to return to action.  I'm very happy with my performance and I want to get back in the ring as soon as possible."

Sims Jr. won by 2nd round knockout by using superior boxing skills while landing hard shots to his opponent Jose Araguz (0-2). After a series of nice combinations that had Arqauz hurt in round one, a right hook ended the bout in the second round. Sims records his first knockout of his career.

"I brought the heat like I said I was going to do, and I got the KO," said Sims Jr. "There is nothing more exciting than winning a professional fight by knockout. Man I was juiced.  All my people came out to see me tonight and I delivered, which makes me very happy.  I want to thank my team for all their support especially my promoters Gary Shaw and Antonio Leonard, along with my manager James Prince.  I'm hoping to make a quick return to the ring."

"We knew we had the goods when we signed Sims Jr. and Martinez," said Gary Shaw. "These kids are very special and tonight they dazzled the crowed with their performances.  I'm very proud of them.  Antonio Leonard, James Prince and I will be looking to get them both back in the ring very soon."
