“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.”
