"It felt real good to get that knockout in my last fight," said Sims Jr. "I'm going to come out strong again and see what happens.  If I can get the knockout then that would be great.  I'm not going to be headhunting but I'll be throwing hard shots for every angle. I really want to thank my promoters Gary Shaw and Antonio Leonard for keeping me busy. If I get a chance to make an appearance on ESPN I'll make the most of my opportunity."

"Sims and Martinez are hungry and I know they are going to bring a ton of action to the Little Creek Casino.  The main and co-main will open up doors for the winners so I'm expecting to see something special from each fighter."
