Anthony Sims Jr. returns, but desperately needs to step-up the competition!
Undefeated light-heavyweight prospect Anthony Sims Jr (18-0, 17KO) is scheduled to return April 26 against an opponent to be named later. However, the question that most pundits ask is “when will the young and talented fighter step up the level of competition?”
The 24 year-old boxer from Indiana had a good amateur career. He held a record of 188-13 along with 10 national titles. He is currently under the banner of Matchroom Boxing head honcho Eddie Hearn.
Sims Jr is riding high on an impressive seventeen-straight knockout streak. Although it has been against sub-par opposition, he displays the skill and power to become a serious challenger in the division. Recently, Hearn claimed his talented prospect will be challenging for a title by the end of the year.
Making such a huge claim, team Sims must now start to make better match-ups that will catapult him into the ranking systems. Normally at this point of fighter’s career, they start to fight for minor titles that will help speed up the process.
The light-heavyweight division has become one of the most talked about weight classes in boxing. Therefore, there are plenty of options for the talented fighter from the Midwest.
Although just a claim for now, it’s safe to assume they will use this opportunity to look for a good test for the aforementioned boxer.
