NEW JERSEY - Gary Shaw Productions and Antonio Leonard Promotions are happy to announce the return of their highly touted prospects, Kenneth "Bossman" Sims Jr. (2-0, 1 KO) and Eduardo Martinez (2-0, 1 KO).  Both fighters hail from Chicago and will fight July 11, 2014 at the Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, WA.

"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."

Martinez battles Lavale Wilson (1-3) 4-round Featherweight bout.  Martinez also recorded a first round knockout in his last bout, the first of his career.

"Shaw and Leonard are doing a great job keeping us busy," said Martinez. "I'm a pressure fighter so I'm always looking to wear down my opponent and get the knockout.  I'll be aggressive in this fight and will be doing my best to please the fans with a great exciting fight.""This is going to be a great card with a lot of exciting fights," said Gary Shaw. "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."
